Consensus Activity : LUSENET : work teams : One Thread

I am facilitating a church board retreat. The six-memeber board and moderator (pastor) have been meeting for the last several months to discuss the state of the congregation, difficulties, problems, and issues. During the retreat, the group would like to come to consensus on a broad course of action in order to set goals and priorities. This consensus is an important foundation for what will likely be some difficult choices and actions in the future.

Historically, this elected board has not demonstrated a lot of commitment to decisions it has made.

My Question: What recommendations do you have for activities that would help achieve a true consensus among the members of a board as described?
