2015. I am looking forward to a great year together.
Steve Lien will continue to offer workshops on call committee coaching, Dan Clites will continue to offer workshops on the development of new ministries, and I will continue to offer workshops for congregational leadership.
One of the things that we hope to be is a resource to our congregations. Other models for staffing in church bodies looks to do the work for the congregation; we want only to help, encourage, strengthen, challenge and empower the congregation to do the work that the Lord of the Church has entrusted to her!
To strengthen the churches we have and to plant the ones we don’t is what I am committed to doing for as long as I am able and allowed to.
The Board of Trustees understands that this is a good use of our time (the staff of LCMC) and the resources of our association, and all it takes is an invitation.
We are not forming boards, commissions, study committees to develop positions papers, and all the rest of the “institutional” structures that tend only to perpetuate themselves. In LCMC, from the beginning, we have had a desire to help congregations do what the Lord has called them to do: “Go, make disciples of all nations!”
2015: Still in the hands of Almighty God. We know that God is at work. We just want to be a part of what God is doing. “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. May his kingdom come also to us, and his will be done among us!Log in to add a comment
