In 2 Corinthians 12:1 Paul writes, “Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.” Yet when you ask many WELS members if they know what their spiritual gifts are they have no idea. Most congregations also struggle to find people to serve in positions within their congregation.
Is there a way to create a sustainable member ministry system that teaches the Biblical foundations of serving, helps people to discover their unique gifts and passions and connects them with meaningful ministry? Yes there is! Lori Lorig, from Faith Unleashed Consulting will share “The 8 Key Components of a Member Ministry System.” At Trinity in Crete, Illinois they use a unique discovery process called SHAPED to Serve that helps the congregation get the right people serving in the right place, at the right time and for the right reason. Come learn how to unleash more people into ministry!
