Welcome To Leader Track 

Module 1b: On-Boarding

Many people believe that if you just preach well that is all that is needed. I know many people and churches who preach well, however, their impact on their community is minimal because of their size. We are called to impact and change our community and you will learn our strategy in this module. 

What You'll Learn

  • How we use Big Days and Events to spur our growth

  • The Concentric Circles of Church Growth 

  • The Art of Excellence 

This module is designed to familiarize you with the basic understanding of our strategy and focus as the Ministry of Helps, and also how we support the vision of the church to continue to grow and become a resource to our community. 

Concentric Circles of Growth - 57min

This video explains the Concentric Circles of Growth as is pertains to person growth and service in the church.

Big Day Strategy Video - 18min

There are two ways to fulfill the great commission that Jesus has instructed us all to do; "Go and Tell," (missional) or "Come and See" (attraction). While we use both methods, this video will explain our "attractional" strategy of Come and See.

What To Do Next

After watching the two videos, please complete the following:

  • Set aside time this week to pray about and study the content.

  • Download and review both the Concentric Circles of Growth Document and the Big Day Document 

  • Download and read the Art of Excellence (22pgs)

  • Meet with your ministry leader to discuss
