(Presenter: Rev. Dr. Peter Meier)
The Church, the Body of Christ, has eight systems that interact with and support the God-given health and growth of the Church: Reproduction, Assimilation, Worship Planning, Spiritual Growth/Discipleship, Pastoral Care, Volunteer Ministry Placement, and Generosity. Often when a congregation is "stuck" or "plateaued," there is an issue in one or more of these systems. You may do many activities and plan many events in your church, but are they aligned with Jesus' Great Commission or planned in such a way as to have the maximum mission impact? Structured for Mission is an excellent resource for pastors and lay leaders in new and mature churches looking to evaluate and structure their congregational practices for alignment with God's mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible.
Structured for Mission: A Mission Alignment Seminar will:
Explore "best practices" for each of the eight systems in the Church
Facilitate the evaluation of your current systems
Provide a framework for assessment, visioning, and goal-setting in each of these eight critical systems
Discuss dealing with discouragement and effective management of demands and time
DATE: Thursday, September 12 — Friday, September 13, 2019
LOCATION: Resurrection Lutheran Church, 5500 West 26th Street, Sioux Falls, SD
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Go on up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good news; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good news; lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
