Ready to go all in with your Creative Ministry?
There's never been a better time! Online tools and resources make it easier to reach people and engage them with their own spiritual lives.
Changing demographics and institutions means there's a deep, global mission field for those willing to answer the call.
You might think of it as being an 'entrepreneurial evangelist' or a 'faith practitioner'. I like to call it becoming a Free Range Priest!
Whatever term you use, it's about sharing your unique gifts for ministry in a reimagined way.
To get there, you'll need support, encouragement, guidance and practical resources.
That's what you'll get with Creative Ministry Startup...
Have you ever noticed how so many church leaders - lay and ordained - are tired all the time?
We are exhausted. And busy. And overwhelmed. And how we do church is not helping with that - in fact, it is part of what is keeping us from getting to the good stuff - living our discipleship, and sharing the transformative Good News of the love of God.
Most of us, deep-down, know this, and feel this.
But we are afraid. Why?
Because we don’t really see an alternative. Or, more precisely, we don’t see an alternative that looks like thriving church.
We really fear that all this decline means we will have to close church doors, or that we will be out of work as clergy.
And deeper down, we are afraid there will be no one there to worship with, no one there to be with us in community - to celebrate life’s passages with us, to visit us when we are sick, to bury us.
We might lose our vital connection to the love of God.
We might lose this place - this group of people and this location - that means so much to us, maybe for generations. These are big and true things. It’s not wrong to have these fears.
Sustainable Part-Time Ministry (SP-TM) Training supports the belief that there is Good News beyond them, by reimagining the way that clergy and congregations serve in ministry together.
