We’ve adapted Pastor Al Johnson’s Sabbath School model and established the following 4 (four) functional areas as starting points for developing approaches to equipping the believers:
1. Spiritual Growth
4. Personal Evangelism
Our Approach involves 5 concurrently operational layers.
Layer 1: Teaching – In partnership with the Pastors & Elders this will involve strategic and intentional "Big Room" teaching, re-education, reality checks and tangible orientation to the 4 functional areas.
Layer 2: Equipping - Training / education sessions with the ministry leaders as well as with the wider church membership.
Layer 3: Streamlining: Developing strategic plan, organizational structure and system of operations that facilitate the vision, mission and goals in a self-sustaining manner.
Layer 4: Communion: The intentional elevation of the priority of Prayer and Bible Study for the church.
Layer 5: Doing: Facilitating the operations of the Grow Groups & Ministries
