The First Meeting: Recruitment of a Skilled Facilitator

Perhaps few things can encourage the success of the network more than a skilled and trustworthy facilitator. The roles of 1) facilitating the meeting and 2) facilitating the network function outside of the meetings may, in some cases, be held by two different people. If no one within the group is trained as a meeting facilitator, it is far better to hire or recruit a skilled facilitator from outside the prospective network than to go forward with inept meeting leadership. The role of meeting facilitator may change from meeting to meeting. See Training<> for Advocacy, Networks, Partnerships.

    Skills Needed for Facilitation:

Cornell Haan of Mission America has written extensively on the role and qualities of a godly facilitator. See Facilitator:<> A New Role for Church Leaders.

These recommendations are from a trained network facilitator whose name has been withheld for security reasons.
