Holy Ground to Quicksand
Exodus 3:3-5 speaks of Moses before God as holy ground. We, too, are standing on holy ground, God’s church/the body of Christ.
I believe Greg Rentsch’s Call to Laity is a call for all of us to not abandon holy ground for quicksand.
Will you join God’s mission to holy ground participants for church and community? Let’s work together so that we will not sink into quicksand of inaction too busy for what really matters, let someone else do it or apathy. His call to act is for all of us. I commend his article below.
Board of Laity Strategic Vision 2017-2020
Greg Rentsch, Conference Lay Leader
The mission of the Board of Laity is to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world which is what Jesus Christ commanded us in Matthew 28:16-20.
The purpose of the Board of Laity is to prepare and encourage all people in a life of Christian discipleship.
The Board of Laity is focused on
- helping churches with vision, Christian formation and outreach
- partnering in ministry with clergy and supporting vitality and discipleship across the conference and especially in the local church by aligning with the 4 Areas of Focus.
This focus has manifested into objectives and key results of vision, Christian formation and outreach. This month we will look at vision.
Partner with Congregational Vitality to equip local churches to conduct strategic planning to lean into the mission and vision of the church.
Encourage Lay Members to Annual Conference to take the energy and vision from the Annual Conference to drive change at the local church.
