Resources to Promote Innovation and Vitality
If you are an innovator, or interested in church vitality, we think you’ll appreciate these resources provided by our Greater Northwest Area Innovation Vitality Team. We believe that they reflect some of the key practices and competencies necessary to promote fruitful, and faithful, ministry in the 21st century.
Please return to this page from time to time as we’ll add new resources as they are developed. For additional information, contact Program Assistant Patrick Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Equipping Leaders for Relational Community Work
Discover Sustainable Engagement
At the intersection of social enterprise and project development comes a new book for innovators. This resource is the result of developing and integrating the work of “creating new places with new people” during 2016 through 2019 development seasons within the Greater Northwest Area.
In the work of starting new places with new people (or cultivating new expressions of ministry within existing congregations), we have to make it a priority to address the vital details of operation and sustainability. This will require an important shift as we face the many challenges and vital issues emerging in America.
