There is a lot of confusion regarding exactly what a “mission-centric” ministry really is and even more regarding the process of transitioning fromthe minister-centric (Pastor / Flock Model) to a purpose-focused ministry practice. With 9 out of 10 ministries in decline, mission-centric ministry is being seen as a more sustainable and more enjoyable ministry practice.
Transitioning from minister- to mission-centric ministry is a “whole system” process that creates community and organizational coherence. Simply put, in the mission-centric model of ministry, the entire community embodies the fulfilled state of the ministry’s purpose. People’s experience of the ministry’s mission constitutes the ministry’s identity rather than the minister being the glue that holds everything together.

This transformative seminar will address:

  • Why the current minister-centric model of ministry is unsustainable in these times
  • Why traditional tithing and prosperity classes no longer sustain ministries
  • How mission-centric ministry is funded differently
  • How to deal with unresolved issues and the sense of not enough
  • How to intentionally cultivate the culture of ownership
  • Shadow work and growing emotional and spiritual maturity
  • The essential elements of transitioning from minister to mission-centric ministry practice
  • The Mission-centric Ministry Coach Program (MMCP)
