Risks and Opportunities…

aspengroup.gifOk, I have to brag a bit on my new friend and esteemed colleague Ed Bahler.  Ed came out to Community this past Monday to lead us in a day-long vision/strategy session regarding an opportunity we are exploring in the nearby under-resourced community of East Aurora.  We gathered together a group of a few staff leaders from Community, a few key leaders from the business community of Naperville, a couple of architectural/building feasibility geniuses, and some influential leaders in the community of East Aurora.  Ed not only effectively facilitated productive communication amongst us all, but he led us in defining the vision, strategy, and deliverable next steps to take in determining if this is a feasible project and – if so – how we can best accomplish it.  Besides being a fun and energetic leader to be in a room with, Ed is brilliant and I’d recommend him to any church who is looking to start a new venture or building project.  Ed’s associate Greg Snider came with him as well, and Greg is the senior project developer for the Chicagoland region of Aspen Group.  With these two guys on the team – combined with the other brilliant minds we had in the room that day – this project, challenging as it may be, is off to a great start!
