Q: What types of churches and ministries have you worked with?
A: Primarily Protestant and evangelical. This includes Bible and non-denominational Churches, Baptist, Anglican, as well as missional networks and para-church organizations such as YWAM, NAMB and M4. Often sessions or engagements are with multiple denominations or churches participating.
Q: Do you conduct stand-alone courses in facilitator training?
A: Years ago we did. What I’ve found is when training is conducted separately from a context of application; it loses the experiential aspect and becomes academic. When this happens, its effectiveness is limited and it use declines. That is why facilitator training is now integrated into WaveChangeSM Engagements. It creates a much richer learning environment, and much more active application.
Q: Is WildWorks a formal ministry, or does it have a not for profit status?
A: No. WildWorks is an LLC. It operates on a fee basis.
Q: What countries has WildWorks worked in?
A: In addition to serving several global ministries, we have worked in France, Norway, Palestine, South Africa, Indonesia, Germany, Kenya, Philippines, UK and the United States. Some of the sessions conducted were in English, others through the use of translators.
Q: How can a church or ministry determine if working with WildWorks would be beneficial to the organization?
A: All engagements begin with a “design meeting”. This is typically a 2-hour meeting with the perspective leadership team considering the engagement. In the design meeting, we discuss the specific goals and outcomes a church or ministry is trying to achieve. Then, I outline possible services that WildWorks could provide and we jointly agree on how to move forward. Even if the church or ministry decides that WildWorks is not a fit for what they are doing, the design meeting often helps the leadership team gain clarity on how to move forward.
