Innove equips local churches to empower local social innovators through a contest format. Using the Innove process, Alan equips churches to empower local social innovators. Through this process, your church will be coached on how to activate your congregation to mentor, resource, and launch social innovation ideas in your own community.

"A contest with no losers."

A Church experiences spiritual renewal.

Colonial Church, a Congregational fellowship roughly 70 years old, assessed its assets and discerned how to marry two of its strongest ones: the highly experienced professionals in the congregation and a piece of land that could be turned into money for mission.

The result? The Innové Project—a social enterprise competition that afforded Colonial the opportunity to connect the wisdom and experience of its Boomers to the vision and energy of local Millennials who wanted to influence the city for good. To date, eleven social ventures advancing the common good in the Twin Cities and beyond have been launched, and the congregation has experienced spiritual renewal.
