Training is not just another word for discipleship.
Training is a formal method of teaching someone what they need to know in the best and most pleasant, encouraging, and fun way possible. There are three areas for this, formal class, mentoring, and coaching.
A few Key Principles to Jumpstart your Church on the Road to His Path!
The Quintessential way to Grow your Church is to Understand and Implement Hospitality!
Are you a hospitable person? What about with people you do not like? You may not have to invite them into your home, but how do you treat them? How do you treat people at church? Really, how do you? Most people in any given church would say they are not treated well as far as feeling welcomed or connected! Yes, our church is different, and perhaps much better than others, but I believe we can be even better for our Lord's glory!
Listening knows to be an effectual leader, you must know how to listen, all its takes is the will to turn it on and let it work.
Followers is knowing that you cannot lead where you have not been, unless the leader is a good follower of the Lord they cannot lead others effectively!
No Fear of Failure is the ability to take a risk and keep the focus and attention on our call and obedience!
This emergent or postmodern or Emerging Church is fairly new as a movement, yet is has shadows all through church history as everything has been new at one point including the Church itself. Perhaps this emergent church is a spinoff of the "Jesus Movement" in the 70's, an inspirational application of Schaffer's influence, a journey to new things in order to catch others for the faith
Spunk is the willingness to take a risk and go beyond ourselves, our experience and knowledge and into what is best for the body of Christ!
Perseverance is to continue in our state of grace so we live it out in our lives and walk with Christ to the end for our eternal reward!
Maturity is to know that our need is to be in Christ, and not to be to ourselves!
