Reigniting Followership!

A Brown Bag Lunch Discussion with Chris Laping

If you think about it: the Church is a 2000 year-old brand that has emerging competitive pressures and things that distract potential followers of Christ. During his tenure at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Chris Laping managed the challenge of reigniting the relevance of a 45 year-old brand. Millennials made up 87% of Red Robin’s workforce—and they were leaving to work elsewhere at an unprecedented rate! Although a different context, many lessons-learned that Chris learned from this corporate experience are highly applicable to the Church … and the recent defection of churchgoers.

In this interactive session full of storytelling, Chris will share concepts from his newly-released book, People Before Things, talk about a compelling model for enabling and activating change, and present practical ideas for building “followership.” Please join us for this first-time, exclusive book-release event!

When:  Thursday, June 23, 2016, the talk begins at noon, book signing immediately afterwards.

Where: Sixth Avenue United Church of Christ, 3250 Sixth Avenue (between Adams and Steele streets), Denver, Colorado 80206, www.sixthavenueucc.org. There is on-the-street parking available around the church. You may have to walk a block or so from where you park.

RSVP here by June 21st.

Cost:  None for admission, just bring your own lunch! People Before Things will be on sale for $28. A portion of the book sale proceeds will be donated to the Colorado Council of Churches.
