Preparatory Regional Virtual Sessions: Collecting voices from the grassroots

In preparation for the global Strategic Plan Workshop in Sept 2022, about 35 delegates of Congregational Units and GSIF representatives from different countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Europe joined virtual meetings where they could learn about the GSIF strategic planning process and share their inputs and reflections regarding the proposed Horizons and Long-Term Outcomes. In August, the delegates also attended training sessions on the Theory of Change methodology, including some practical exercises to ensure that participants will understand this approach’s key elements, such as backward mapping.
