NEED-MEETING & A video intro to a “4-stage Need-based Outreach Strategy”

Commentary by Prof. B: I’ve created this video to not only introduce colleagues and clients to the efficacy of a “4-Stage Outreach Strategy,” but also to give my online students a sense of an introduction I would give in a live classroom. The viewer will find a concise intro to why most outreach efforts fail … because they are not holistically incorporating all “4-stages” of an outreach strategy. Plus, my LEAD-600 students will find this a helpful introduction to their classroom assignments on need-based outreach.

60-sec VIDEO & Why You Need a “Parish Nurse Program” #ChurchHealth.expert

Commentary by Dr. Whitesel:  These are short video tips I’ve learned from 25+ of church consulting (©BobWhitesel, 2015)

Wesley was concerned that the poor were often preyed upon by medical quacks. And so in his spare time he studied medicine and even wrote a book about herbal remedies. Of course all remedies were herbal in those days (and technically still are today 🙂 so, here’s a link to the book if you’d like to skim it (this is a free e-book too): Primitive Physick

And, here is a link to a full online version from the Princeton Archive: https://archive.org/details/primitivephysico00wesl

Finally, attached is an article introducing the parish nurse program. This program is used today in many United Methodist churches as a way to help others in the spirit of John Wesley: ARTICLE Parish Nurse Jan09 Lueder
