As the world changes, the church is in decline. When the church is needed most, it is struggling to survive and to assert any influence. God has called people to bring good news and meet all of these needs, but in many cases, they are under-resourced, under-appreciated, and even sometimes blocked to live out that calling. These missional people are disconnected from each other, unable to collaborate in meaningful ways and at times competing for the same small pool of resources. They are at high risk of burnout and turnover.
How will we empower the called to serve and love those in need?
Our best people, who most clearly represent the future of the church and the hope of the kingdom, struggle to survive and continue in their essential work. They receive very little coaching, support, or even a community in the work they do. The church needs these people and these people need the church. And the lost and poor of the world desperately need them to find each other.
How will we inspire the church to rise into its fullest potential?
