Abstract
Silence to Active Voice: A Leadership Process for Conversations on Timely and Sensitive Topics charts the process of the author to guide adaptive change at St. John's United Methodist Church of Kansas City, Missouri. The aim of this leadership project was to overcome silence so that the congregation could regain an active voice regarding the timely and sensitive topic of human sexuality. Through the interactive process of learning from other leaders, preaching to name silence, engagement in conversation, and forming a taskforce to move forward, the congregation embraced adaptive change in order to regain an active voice within and without.
