A church that has an average worship attendance of 150-250 has been described as an awkward size -- too large to be a small, family-style church and not large enough to sustain all of the programs and staff of a large church.

Participants in this two-day seminar will be equipped to meet the challenge of making disciples for Jesus Christ, and thereby growing by sharing strategies and models in these ministry areas: multiple and varied worship celebrations, caring systems and small group ministries, organizational issues and decision-making processes, fund raising and stewardship, volunteerism and spiritual gifts, assimilation of newcomers, participation and ministry teams.

The key issues that this seminar will focus on to help the church successfully make the necessary transition to grow are new small groups and developing ministry teams.

Participants will gain fresh understanding and perspective of this church size, as well as the transitions and ministries to grow in the number of disciples. Systems and change theory will be foundational throughout the seminar.

Participants will then meet in one follow-up session for ongoing support and to help implement the principles shared in the seminar, as well as to address specific questions and concerns regarding continuing, effective ministry.

Registration is Closed
