Lead transformative & Christ-centered ministry

Learn and use the core practices of effective Christian ministry

Coming January 2020

Module #1 | Why is Ministry Struggling?

In this module we’ll start diagnosing the problem: our ministry isn’t suffering from a lack of quantity, but from problems of quality. Specifically, problems with the vision of our ministry. In four lessons we’ll dig deeper into the question of why existing ministry models aren't helping young people grow in faith, and we'll explore why people leave the Church.

Module #2 | Making a Ministry Map

In this module we’ll start offering a positive vision of ministry by building a map of ministry. We’ll understand where we are in the modern world, where we're trying to go with a positive vision of ministry, and what's standing in our way. We'll pay special attention the 5 basic needs that young people have: need which we'll address with the 5 practices of effective Christian ministry.

Module #3 | The 5 Practices of Effective Ministry

In this module we'll dig into practical applications of the five core practices of effective Christian ministry. Rather than offer cookie cutter or "one size fits all" approaches, we'll help you understand the characteristics of each practice so you can start implementing effective Christian ministry in your home or community today.
