There are 4 essential dimensions to a truly effective church. They include 1. Engaged Disciples, 2. a Culture of True Stewardship, 3. Consensus Vision and Strategic Plan and 4. an Effective Worship Experience. The Stewardship Calling ministry is devoted to the best practices in all 4 of these dimensions
The October 30th Stewardship Calling 5th Sunday series program on Ancient Faith Radio will begin with a brief introduction of the Effective Church model. The rest of the program will engage in a deeper dialogue on how churches are using an Orthodox strategic planning “4-P” approach based on Holy Scripture and best practices to build a consensus vision and successful strategic plan that is transformational.
My co-host Father Barnabas Powell (of Faith Encouraged Ministries) and I will welcome the immensely talented and dedicated Dr Gayle Woloschak a leader of the strategic plan for the national Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA. Tune in at 8:00 p.m. Eastern at: http://www.ancientfaith.com/radio/live, or better yet call in at 1-855-237-2346 and let us answer your questions as we explore how to better live our stewardship callings in our lives and churches. God bless
