You are ordained.
You’ve had a calling.
But, yet, somehow. Something got stuck.
You know that you have been called. You are just having a bit of a hard time getting that to happen as you know you should. To use religious language, you find yourself in a narrow place.
When you think about this thing you have really being called to do, it’s a bit terrifying.
You might want that calling to go-away, but it doesn’t.
You know that there is something you must do. The story of Jonah and of all the other (reluctant) prophets ring true.
I don’t know what it is – if it is anything I did, if it anything that was done to me – but I’m a rabbi who gets to do what I do, quite freely.
I’m the founder of Religion-Outside-The-Box. And a few years ago I took a leap and started to do my pluralistic religious job full time. (I was a high school teacher before that. And, before that I was an ordained rabbi at a “regular” congegation.)
God has called me. (Here’s an article I wrote about my calling.) God called me not to be a rabbi – but rather God has called me to be me, who happens to be a rabbi.
I didn’t get where I am on my own. I got a lot of help. I have studied business and organizations, and I’ve studied about and taught about marketting and sales.
And, I want to help you to do your own thing.
What and why.
I want to help you to launch your next clergy thing. That thing you want to do, that thing you feel called to do. Why? Because we are all in this together.
It doesn’t matter where you are in the process. Maybe you know 87.5% of where you are going and you need some guidance, goal setting, and web-platform recommendations. Maybe you are looking ahead and trying to get some clarity on a five-year plan that seems 2.5% clear. I’m ok with either.
I know how scary this can be.
And, I know how exciting this is.
I know for whom I work.
And, I know for whom you work.
I want to work with you. And, for whom we work. Together.
You and I working together
First we, we talk on the phone or we email or we video chat to make certain you and I want to work together. (Right? That seems like a good place to start. No obligations.)
Once we see that we might want to work together, we will define out four things:
•What do you want?
•What do you currently not want?
•What you currently have that you might have to give up to get what you want?
•What are the potential problems that you don’t currently have that might come along with getting this thing you want?
I coach answers out of you and help you determine if you like your answers. (And, of course, revise as necessary.)
I will help you to figure out:
- why change
- what to change
- what to change to
- how to cause the change.
I will help you however I can to help you to do your most important work.
Group & Guests
We work individually. But also as a group.
Once a week for 6 weeks, you and I will join with others via video-call (think Brady-Bunch with eveyone able to see and hear each other). Everyone working on “unleashing” of their ministry.
The group offers something magical – a sense that “I’m not alone.” I always have loved how much good comes out of people encouraging each other.
Also, I have a cadre of un-tethered clergy friends who might join one or more of the group video calls. These are people who have broken out and are doing something un-orthodox. And, they are willing to share their experience, strength, and hope. (I do not know exactly which of these people would be appropriate for the group, nor do I know their schedules as of now, so this needs to be played by ear.)
We will get you results. Guaranteed. When you and I talk we will set a tangible goal – like running your first online class on musar or having a projected profit and loss statement for your new work. And, we will get you within 80% of that goal.
Guaranteed. See price, below.
The handholding, the wisdom, the expertise, the being in conversation with other outside-the-box religious leaders has got to be worth $1,000’s.
But, I’m not going to tell you to pay that. I want you to pay only what you feel it is worth. Later.
At the end of the 6-weeks I will ask you to make a donation to ROTB from your heart, what you think it was worth, and according to your means.
That being said, I will ask you for $100 upfront to hold your spot. But, you don’t have to pay this until after you and I have made certain that both of us think this is a good fit. The $100 is 100% refundable.
I’d like to talk with you, soon-ish. Please.
I’d like to have the first of the group chats at the end of May. (Times will be determined based on who is in the group and when people can meet.)
