Insight 015: FaithSoaring Churches Renew Their Core While Extending Their Ministry
Congregations are often very caring for those in need near them and throughout the world. They understand the need to extend the ministry of their congregation to hurting people, and engage in acts of Christian kindness. Yet they have a disconnect between going around doing well, and specifically engaging people in disciplemaking processes.
They do not renew the core while extending the ministry. They are Great Commandment congregations rather than Great Commission congregations. They need to be both, but often they do not know how and thus annually lose capacity to extend their ministry. Transforming congregations effectively renew their core os disciples while extending their ministry to all people.
