• Church Renewal JourneyChurch Renewal

    Passion. How often do you hear people describe their church family interactions as passionate? Would you like to discover a way to make that the norm? Explore what the Church Renewal Journey can bring to your church – renewal, refreshing and passion. A new passion to worship and serve God as never before.

    The Church Renewal Journey is a series of lay-led, revival-type weekends that take the church on a biblical-based, spiritual journey to becoming on mission with God.

    the journey

    Lay RenewalAwakening Weekend
    Reawakens the church to its purpose and passion. The weekend refreshes the believers with a godly perspective of their role in service to others. It restores the love of Christ to those who have drifted from their commitment. The Awakening Weekend will bring the church together as a family.

    Equipping Weekend
    A call to personal ministry, evangelism and personal discipleship. Believers will discover their spiritual gifts and consider practical applications of these gifts to evangelism and ministry. It is here that many understand for the first time that they, too, are called to ministry.

    Commissioning WeekendCommissioning Weekend
    A call for church members to take their places of ministry in the workplace, at school or wherever God has called them to serve. Participants prayerwalk their places of service, asking God how He may want to work through them outside the church walls. Those who commit are commissioned by their churches.

At the end of the weekend, the congregation will have committed to an Acts 1:8 strategy, working to penetrate lostness in their Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.
