Resident Focus Playbook

The Resident Focus Playbook is a step-by-step guide for conducting activities that support the Resident Focus Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of National Church Residences. Each section focuses on activities that correspond to the four pillars: Enabling Community, Inviting Conversation, Reserving Judgment, and Putting Aside Differences.

Below are several activities for each pillar. Each link will provide you with a pdf of background information, materials needed, and step-by-step instructions for hosting activities on your property. After each activity, remember to fill out this brief survey to let us know how the activity went and how we can improve future activities.
