Redemptive Family Church Series
What is the future of your church?
This can be an uncomfortable question to answer. The church is here for a purpose. Our future (and the spiritual health of our members) is directly linked to our success in helping everyone find their part in the church’s mission.
But here’s the problem. When ’mission’ means programmes, only a few members are needed, leaving the rest of the congregation wondering how being part of the church helps them live out their purpose.
As a church leader, how do you help everyone find their missional purpose, use their spiritual gifts and grow as a disciple?
Succeed in this and the future of your church is bright indeed!
We can help
Love Your Neighbour supports whole church families embracing their mission together.
That’s why we created the Redemptive Family church series — a six week journey plus a church-wide conversation that builds on the insights of the book Redemptive Family. This helps churches re-imagine ways of doing simple mission together that are effective and warmly relational. With everyone engaged and fulfilled in mission the church grows spiritually and numerically!
How it works
- Five big themes engage the whole congregation
- Sermon outlines
- Personal devotional booklets
- Small group studies
- Weekly surveys give feedback to church leadership
- A church-wide conversation draws it all together
Five big themes:
- Church is a family on a mission
- Why God planted our church here
- How we individually nurture redemptive relationships
- How the family can share and grow relationships together
- Being mature people who lead ourselves well
A church-wide conversation
At the conclusion of the Redemptive Family church series, with guidance from the church leaders, the Love your Neighbour team facilitates a church-wide conversation. Usually held over a Friday evening and Saturday morning, this is a space where everyone has a voice and will contribute as your church discerns its next growth step. As a result relationships will be deepened and your people will be empowered, with renewed unity and enthusiasm for a shared vision.
“We were in a desperate place, people leaving, old hurts nagging, some disgruntled or discouraged… Where should the mending start? The Redemptive Family series and workshop was the turning point in our church life.
The facilitators did a fantastic job leading us through the thinking process. They came up with great questions tailored to where we were at. We had previously felt alone, all doing our own thing. Just coming together, given a space to share freely, started us on the right track.
Young people suddenly sensed hopeful possibilities for change. Newcomers found a welcome and wanted to bring others. This is not some quick fix or outside programme, but helping a congregation come to solutions and a way forward with God’s help.”
