Pathway for Resourcing Local Churches:

Resourcing
Establish and create tools for partnerships to utilize (e.g., devotionals, sermon series, tutorials for initiating church-school partnerships, poverty training for churches, etc.).

Innovation
Brainstorm big ideas to help us reach our goal – experiment, test and dream.

Information
Determine the starting point, collect and share information, search for best practices and search for community partners.

Celebration
Celebrate and highlight mutually beneficial church-school partnerships around the conference.

Invitation
Invite local churches to participate at various levels.

 

How we will reach our goal

Introduce this goal to at least 24 ministerial leaders a month through phone calls or face-to-face meetings.
