Missional Ministry Workshop

Missional Ministry Workshop
#LCMC14 Gathering. Des Moines

“Planting a new congregation was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my years of ministry. It was also the greatest!” – Rev. Dan Clites, LCMC church planter and coach.

Planting a new congregation is not easy. Then again, picking up the cross and following Jesus is not meant to be easy. It is, however, meant to be great!

The event is hosted by the Rev. Dan Clites, LCMC’s Coordinator for New Ministry Development. Dan planted and led Rejoice! Lutheran Church in Northfield-Dundas, Minnesota for 10-years before taking on his new role as a church planting coach. He is passionate about developing missional communities that can spring from our existing congregations in order to be more effective in reaching the unreachable and discipling them to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Feeding the Hungry

Meals From The Heartland mealsfromtheheartland.org is a non-profit organization delivering meals to starving people around the world.
At the #LCMC14 Gathering Spirit of Peace Church Valley Nebraska peacelcmc.org went the distance skipping dinner and other scheduled evening activities in order to pack meals from start to finish, from newbie assembly line workers to the very last boxed meal.
All said there were over 275,000 boxes of 32 bagged meals packaged in this effort to feed starving people around the globe.
The meals consist of bagged rice, soy, vegetables and vitamins. 300 gram dry weight packages are expected to feed one meal to six people.

10 Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as day. Isaiah 58:10.

Accountability as a Life Skill

Teacher, It appears clear to us that turning away from potential sinful temptation and practicing accountability to ourselves, our community of believers and our Triune God goes hand in hand. Is there a procedure that we may follow to stay on the path of righteousness?

This is a well phrased issue that addresses the ever present temptation we experience in our daily lives as sinners!
We define righteousness as allowing the Holy Spirit to inspire us, coming to scriptural knowledge, accepting scripture as the true Word of God, believing in Jesus as Savior and receiving the gift of salvation that He freely gives us. Rom. 14, Matt. 16.
Accountability to one another is an aspiration we strive for in daily practice of our faith, belief in Scripture as the true Word of The Lord, and is a tenet of the LCMC. Accountability requires commitment and community interaction, bilaterally, one to all and all to one. Accountability is an essential redeeming life skill.

Research discovers these effective accountability methods and practices:
We find the presentation of accountability to one another and The Lord in Scripture, Paul. Galatians 1, 2.
First, Paul rebukes the Galatians for their desertion of the Gospel; next, he blames the confusion on those who perverted the Gospel; and then he pronounces a solemn condemnation of all who tamper with the truth of the Gospel.
Finally Free, Dr. Heath Lambert, Professor of Biblical Counseling, SBTS. 2013.
http://www.challies.com/articles/how-to-make-accountability-work
1. Effective accountability does not rely exclusively on accountability alone. Accountability is one tool in the tool bag to assure productive Christian Faith based behavior.
2. Effective accountability is involved early rather than late. It is a best practice to call out to others for help before you sin.
3. Effective accountability involves someone with maturity. Connect with someone that has an established record of victory over sin.
4) Effective accountability involves someone with authority. Heb. 13. Responsibility is key.
5) Effective accountability should avoid explicit details. Eph. 5. This practice allows your accountability person to help you best.
6) Effective accountability places the responsibility for confession on the person with the problem. This realization practice requires a voluntary “Full and Free Confession” without pushing.
7) Effective accountability must actually hold people accountable. Let us engage in Open Dialogue.

We should actively practice and experience satisfactory multi-directional accountability by following these steps. We can meet and discuss expectation and practice further as we engage prayer and fellowship.

Prayer:

Almighty God, you sent your Holy Spirit to be the life and light of your church. Open our hearts to the riches of your grace, that we may be ready to receive you wherever you may appear, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
