We’re all on a journey, whether we’re actively pursuing a goal or just going along for the ride.
As believers, we’re called to be active on our journey. Peter tells us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
Your church members have assessed their lives, and they’ve decided to be intentional about their spiritual development. They have resolved to make this The Year. And your church is their place of worship and growth. What is your church doing to help your members live out their resolve to grow spiritually this year?
It’s never too late for your church to provide discipleship training. Here are just a few tools to have in your back pocket:
- Assessment Guides: These can help your members discover where they are on the spiritual-development spectrum. My local church is using the Christian Life Profile Assessment Tool.
- Communication Platform: In order for your people to participate, they need to know what’s going on. Organize your communication, maintain an engaging church website, and put the right leadership in place to keep your communication loop running.
- Track the Stats: Know where your people are on their journey. Use church management solutions to track and assess data and provide your leaders with valuable insights into your congregation’s spiritual journey.
When you engage your members in these ways, you show them that you’re eager to help them grow and contribute to your church’s mission—to help them to know Christ and grow in that knowledge.
What are some of the ways that you’re helping your members begin their Journey?
