When our trainers do a Peer Ministry Leadership training with youth, someone always says, “This should be for adults, too!”
All In Relational Ministry is for adults. All of your adults. Even for your youth, who are becoming adults!
I often tell youth (and this is true for every adult), “You are already doing ministry; we just forgot to tell you! ” I say, “ Every time you care, welcome, offer help to a friend, you are doing the very front lines of ministry. ” The church’s job? “It is to help you do it better. ” The congregation is the place that enhances your skills and supports your ministry.
WHAT IS THIS?
A resource and a training that enhances the relational skills of your adults to reach out, care, and welcome in everyday, everywhere relationships.
THE VISION: Your people discover that…
- Ministry has left the building. It is now about each person caring for others every day, everywhere, and in every relationship.
- Your church has a vital ministry filled with real purpose and meaning, a ministry that includes them.
- Your church is an equipping place, a go-to place that helps people help others.
- Your church is known as a place with a big, big heart!
- Faith is expressed by loving others because Christ first loved us! (I John 4:19)
