Ken designed and created all of the materials used in the Healthy Church Initiative program throughout the Missouri annual conference of the United Methodist Church. (Pastoral Leadership Development, Lay Leadership Development, Peer Mentoring, and church consulting) These materials have since been used in many other UMC conferences around the U.S.


While each development process is unique based on the needs of the client, there are some similar steps: 


Analysis - Where are the gaps now? What competencies do we want to focus on and why? How will we define success? Who will be the audience? How will the materials be delivered? What resources do we want to use? 


Design - Content, format, activities, materials. Determine objectives of each session. 


Development - Pilot where possible, materials and content review. 


Implementation - Roll out, delivery schedule and time-table. 


Evaluation - Post course delivery. Did we achieve our goals? Maybe done at any stage.
