Congregational Development

“The ministry of the laity is the work of mission or ministry to which each believer is called. As Christians we are all called to this ministry or priesthood – not just clergy. Each of us has a responsibility to proclaim the Good News and reach out to others in love.” – UMC Discipleship Ministries

Next Level Innovations seeks to build up the laity in our congregations as well as the pastoral and lay staff. It is an opportunity to develop our congregations and to give them tools to help their churches go from “Good to Great”. Two to Three sessions are planned through out Phase 1 for this purpose. This cohort will study the work of Sue Nilson Kibbey’s Breakthrough Prayer (Fall 2018), as well as, Phil Maynard’s Connect (Winter 2019).
