Few churches have a clear ministry vision. Consequently they lack focus and enthusiasm in their ministries. In an effort to remedy their situation they often try to create a vision rather than discovering the one that God has for them.
Future ShiftTM offers a way for churches to listen to God collectively and discover His agenda and the future He has for them. The result is a focused church with a realistic vision that makes a Kingdom impact.
Future ShiftTMleads the church ministry leaders and their congregations step by step to a discovery of God's vision for them by:
- Calling them to face the truth about themselves and their community.
- Calling them to pray for God's direction and leading.
- Providing a congregational forum for the entire church to participate in recognizing Gods leading.
- Coaching them in developing practical ways to accomplish the goals God has given.
- Translating their action plan into ministry.
- "Whole-church" focus
- Spirit-led and –empowered
- Utilizes OC Africa resources for assessment and planning
- Consultations with our staff multiply benefits of the Future ShiftTMprocess
- Involves laypeople and leaders in developing and implementing the vision
