Creating & Protecting the Future of Christian Communities
What We Do
Spreading a message of hope is vital during this time of massive transition. We will be speaking at churches, conventions, and online. There is great reason to be encouraged. First, the solutions we are seeking already exist! All we need to do is implement new strategies.
The main task of the speaking ministry to generate awareness and involvement. One thing we can't afford right now is fatalism or complacency. We need to look at the future as brimming with opportunity!
Christianity can definately have its best days ahead! There has never been greater opportunity for churches to collaborate globally and to become more effective than any time in history.
Creating resources and offering tools for churches is another aspect of Sustainable Church Ministries. Books, group studies, and videos are all in various planning stages.
Four books are in the process of being produced at this time: Sustainable Church, The Friend Building Church, Easy Evangelism, and Irresistible Marriage. One book describes the message of Sustainable Church with a focus on the lifeline of our young people. A second book is a manual on creating socially sustainable communities in hostile cultures. Two more books on marriage and evangelism are in the compilation process. Video resources are also being planned.
Assisting churches in the design sustainable programs will be an important service for Sustainable Church Ministries. Pastors, leaders, and businessmen will be collaborating to create the ministry strategies of the future.
Church ministries will need to accept higher levels of complexity. Meeting the needs of youth and young adults has to become more sophisticated. Developing viable communities has to take a greater priority. Group life needs to fall into the realm of a specialized discipline. Social architecture needs to ensure that strong networks of friendships are thriving and continually accepting new people into healthy groups.
Helping churches reach out to their communities and planning evangelistic outreaches is another goal of Sustainable Church Ministries. The church will maintain the ability to focus on restoring it's own health and also reaching out to the community.
Evangelistic outreaches, compassion ministry, big day events, and implementing assimilation procedures are all services offered.
Teaching on natural evangelism, applying personality styles toward evangelism, and discussing relational mission strategy are also available. Evangelism should flow out of a natural love for people. That love usually grows best after it has begun to be implemented.
