This process includes ongoing practices such as strategic, fruitful goal setting, team ministry, sharing and implementing new directions for your church.
IMPACT is designed for church transformation by
Nine sessions, meeting every other month, will walk you through the following topics:
Facilitated by experienced coaches, each session will provide your church with a ministry action plan (MAP) that will give you concrete steps strategically designed to move you forward as a congregation and community of faith. You will be asked to report back on your results at the following sessions.
Churches are like people, they're born...they grow up...and then they die. The difference is that people only get one life to live, as taught in the Christian faith.
Churches can have multiple life cycles.
If a church has been around more than 20 years, the chances are that it has already started several new life cycles.
Churches that have a vision; a clear, concise and concrete purpose and pathway that God has given to them and they have owned, can survivie the ending of a life cycle and embrace a new life cycle, understanding that it is the entrhance into new forms and shapes of ministry that reach out into their community and region and give meaning and value to those they desire to reach, serve and attract.
Clear vision and action plans, (MAP) that will keep you and your team on target and on task through each training session.
Your taylormade vision plan that you design specifically for your local congregation.
You will feel a deep abiding peace and satisfaction that you are creating a vibrant and vital future for your Church.
Your reading, writing, dialogue and learning from trained leaders and across your task group and with other district participants will grow your knowledge and understanding so you can make an IMPACT in your Church and around your community.
IMPACT is an opportunity for churches with less than 75 in attendance to look at ways to impact their community, reach out and connect with people and thereby refocus on their mission.
IMPACT helps churches Thrive not just survive
IMPACT will help you identify your problems and give you solutions.
IMPACT training will help you and your team design a careful and God dreamed vision and plan for your specific needs and outreach in your specific church.
IMPACT is a complete process designed for each congregation's specific hopes, dreams and needs. This is NOT a one-size fits all approach.
Each team member will be required to read 2 books over the 18 months and strategize with their team for healthy and positive change.
