IMPORTANT NOTICE TO A3 DONORS

A3 is moving to a new donor platform called Virtuous! Our existing donor platform has been shut down for a few days to prepare for the new platform launching on Monday, March 27, 2023. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Existing donor information will be transferred. However, for security reasons, banking and credit card data will not be brought over. Therefore, if you have a recurring donation to A3 (via direct debit or credit card), you will need to re-establish your recurring donation on the Virtuous platform starting in April 2023.

FOR ONLINE DONATIONS:

  1. Online donations through March 20, 2023 have been processed through our existing donation platform.
  2. Our online giving portal will be taken down on March 21, 2023, and restored on March 27, 2023 with new capabilities, including an optional account to view/manage gifts online.

FOR RECURRING DONATIONS:

Certain donors will be impacted immediately. If you are in the impacted group that is migrating in April, you should receive an email on March 21, 2023 and a hard copy letter a few days later with additional action steps. If you did get this communication, . . .

  1. March gifts will be processed as usual under our old platform but then will come to an end.
  2. After the online giving portal is restored on March 27, 2023, donors who would like to continue their automated donations will need to login to the new giving portal and set up their recurring donation(s) on the new platform. You can do this starting in April to ensure no gap in your recurring donation.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We value your data and have determined it is more secure not to transfer your banking or credit card information during the migration.

Furthermore, we are confident that the new online donation platform will provide a better donor/partner experience compared to our old online platform. In addition, we will save quite a bit by making this switch. Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your partnership!

What do we mean by The Right Time?

Here is our A3 formula:

A3 brand formula part2

Christlike leaders + the A3 process + the right time + the right place

= Changing the few who change the many...

Let's talk about... "When is the 'Right Time'?

The simple answer is "when God can change the leader."

But in terms of A3's contribution to the change process, there are actually two aspects to the right time...

1. The right timing for each leader

As they say, "Timing is everything." It can be the difference between buying that house or new car or deciding to wait. It can be how a relationship just takes off or sputters and breaks apart. In the same way, timing is key in regard to when a leader is truly ready for further development.

Take a young leader at age 23. He or she might want personal development but may lack enough ministry experience to benefit from the A3 program. In this case, mentoring might be more effective in developing the ministry skills of a young person with 5 years of ministry experience.

Instead, we have found that a person with 10 years of ministry experience could be ready for the A3 program. By that time, they have been involved in a lot of ministry activities and learned enough about themselves to know what they are good at (and what they are not), as well as what they are truly passionate about. These are essential prerequisites for someone to take full advantage of the A3 leader development program.

Another key factor is putting the individual pieces of a cohort together. If the majority of the group is mid-forties, adding a 29-year-old may not fit. Or if the bulk of the group is comprised of leaders in their early thirties, adding a member who is 52 may cause chemistry issues. So the composite ages of the membership of a cohort impact who might be accepted into the program at that time.

2. The ideal duration of time for the learning community

Generally speaking, this is a two-year process. In some places it's two; in others, it might be three. Program duration depends on the local context and the local ownership team making these types of decisions:

  • When can everyone in the cohort meet together? How often? Usually, it's about 8 quarterly retreats spaced apart over two years.
  • When are the busy ministry seasons in that locale?
  • When family obligations don't interfere with the cohort taking a retreat.
  • How many retreats will it take to adequately cover the 14 topics?

So timing is a significant factor in making the program effective—the right leaders going through the right process at the best time for them individually and collectively. This is how we can change the few who change the many.
