SERVE-ival: Capturing the big-hearted enthusiasm for missions we’re seeing in these times and transforming it into a future forward framework for lasting change. – with Brian Jones We’ve seen an incredible revival of neighbors serving neighbors. An engaging missions program in your church inspires a congregation and blesses a community. And an engaging missions program unlocks generosity in a way that maintenance mode will never do. How does the church now capture the big-hearted enthusiasm for missions we’re seeing and transform it into a future forward framework for lasting change? In the SERVE-ival webinar, pastors and leaders will: - Be introduced to frameworks that will help them structure the missions and outreach programming in their churches. - Receive practical guidance on how to reimagine short term mission trips in this season, and in the future as well. Learn how to work with church Missions and Outreach boards and other lay leaders to plan for long-term impact and sustainability. - Understand how missions has transitioned from transactional to relational and toward a hyper-local focus. - Participate in a Q&A to ground the learnings into your individual church context. - Be provided with a PDF copy of the frameworks as a later download. Available Sessions (Sessions are available at multiple levels to best fit the specific context, size, and culture of your church to provide you with the most relevant, actionable information possible): - June 11 at 1:00 pm (CST) • A session for churches with an average worship attendance of 1-300 - June 11 at 3:00 pm (CST) • A session for churches with an average worship attendance of 300 or more The UM Foundation is partnering with Generis to provide a series of three “Game Changing Leadership: Focusing Forward” workshops during the first few weeks of June.
