Wednesdays Without Walls (WWW)

A few years ago, we tried a method of ministry that worked well. We called it WWW for short but its real name is “Wednesday Without Walls.”
James says that we should be ‘doers” of the word versus only being “hearers.” Our congregation like most congregations spend a great deal of time in the study of God’s Word. We would all agree that this is time well spent and the benefits are great. However, there is a time when we need to ‘put to work’ what we have heard and learned in Bible classes and from the pulpit and we need to go outside the walls of the church building to serve.
WWW encourages that. The first year we did WWW, we used only one Wednesday evening for ministry projects during that year. The next two years we used 3 Wednesday evenings a year. A great number of “Wednesday evening” attenders actually did projects. We encouraged members to do their projects on Wednesday evening during the time we would have had Bible study on Wednesdays. Most did so. However, some of our older members preferred to do their projects during the day when they felt safer. These folks were members of a Wednesday morning Bible class at that time.
What kind of projects did people do? We had folks go to local nursing homes to visit, sing, do crafts and generally make the residents feel good. Some folks visited shut-in members. Some did home projects for church members who could not do the projects because of failing health. Some sent cards to members who had fallen away. A group of young couples did a “Fun Day” for the local YMCA. Some sent special gifts to missionaries. One team did some work for a local non-profit.  Another completed a deck and roof for a member.  I think you get the idea. We encouraged ‘creativity’ among the members. We encouraged members to work in teams, couples, singles, etc.
Yes, there is a downside to WWW. I think the biggest downside is that some folks will just sit at home and do nothing on the nights that WWW is scheduled. We ceased WWW after 3 years; it had run its course like most ideas do. Maybe your congregation can do WWW and keep it vibrant and useful. The whole idea is this: the church has left the building and the church is doing what she has been taught.
Feel free to share ideas on WWW or other ministries that you have found helpful.

Missions Fairs

What is a Missions Fair?
Depending upon the goals you have for it, it is a different, and in my opinion, a more attractive and interesting way of doing missionary reports. It also allows the located preacher to preach and not be constantly interrupted by visiting missionaries preaching and giving their reports. It allows the church’s members to actually visit with missionaries and see what they are doing. We usually have our fair during the Bible study hour on the third Sunday of each July.
Why have a Missions Fair?
Simply because it is the best use of a missionary’s time and resources and honestly, it is the best way of getting and giving mission reports either in person or via some visual medium. We have also learned that doing the old way is a turn off for many young people. Some of them will not attend if a missionary is visiting and going to preach. This sounds tragic but that is the way it is here. Mission fairs give special attention to missions and missionaries and present some very powerful visuals. Members and guests can meet and talk to missionaries.
What are the results of a Missions Fair?
We’ve done two now and the missionaries were very impressed, and the members enjoyed it thoroughly. I think a sincere interest in missions has been cultivated within the congregation. I think it is too early for us to tell, but if the interest is any indication, the results will continue to be positive.
What’s involved?
Displays in the vestibule with the missionaries and brief videos (4 to 5 minutes max) being shown in the auditorium. An after-worship lunch with ethnic foods and American foods is offered. Variety is good. There is color and activity and personal involvement using this method.
Missions Fairs present a positive view of Missions. Our younger people want to see people being served (doing) as well as people preaching and teaching. Our missionaries need to do some study in this area. Brief interesting videos take planning; they don’t happen by accident. They must move their viewers emotionally. In the past I have made videos for some of our missionaries. However, they are now learning to do make the videos themselves.
This idea of Missions Fairs was originally given to me by my brother in law Richard Youngblood. Richard, now retired, was the involvement minister at the University church of Christ in Murray, KY for many years. The church had a missions committee and the missions committee met with the missionaries every year with a rotation of all the missionaries over two or three years. Here in Athens, we alternate between a Ministry Fair and a Missions Fair every other year. Presently, our elders do not meet with the missionaries when they are in town for the Missions Fair. I believe the Missions Fair is primarily for the membership but a creative leadership can make it much more.
The goal is to elevate missions and missionaries to their rightful place and to move members to love the lost and those who unselfishly reach out to them. Without evangelism, the lost remain lost. Trav

January 18-19, 2019  Theme:  “Me & You and the People in the Pews”

TIM – Training Involvement Ministers – January 17, 2019

The Role of IM

Jesus said, “…make disciples….”
This is initially done by teaching a lost sinner about Jesus and it continues after he/she has become a child of God. The “it” is the continuation of discipling a person. Discipling is a life-long endeavor; individuals have responsibility to continue to grow, and church leaders need to be a large part of this process as well. The leaders’ maturity, examples and Biblical knowledge cannot be underestimated in this process.
Discipling comes through several means one of which is exposure to teaching and preaching. But it also comes as an individual submits to and practices the various Christian disciplines (prayer, worship, stewardship, solitude, study, fasting, hospitability, meditation, service, Sabbath/rest, submission, confession, etc.) found in Scripture.
One of those disciplines is service. Jesus said the greatest among you will be your servant. Jesus came in the form of a servant and we best imitate Him through servitude and service. We are most like Jesus when we are serving. Even in Heaven, we will be serving.
The Role of IM is to assist Christians (new and established) to continue to grow in this discipline. This discipline is encouraged and refined in members when (and if) members
1. Discover and develop their God-given spiritual gifts, passions, personality traits, when they re-visit their past ministry involvement, their life skills and experiences.
2. Deploy these very things through an organized congregational ministry or when they start their own personal ministry.

The IM should be instrumental in helping members discover, develop and deploy their spiritual gifts, etc.
The IM may also work with church leaders, deacons, ministry leaders and members in designing new ministries, revitalizing established ones and terminating those ministries which are no longer useful or beneficial. The IM may also train ministry leaders and assist in the development and deployment of members.

For his work to be successful, members must cooperate and church leaders (including deacons and ministry leaders) must encourage and support his/her work.   It is always to everyone’s advantage personally (because they are growing more like Jesus) .  And, then it is to the advantage of the local church because she will be blessed with greater unity, and her members will be blessed because they are serving and being served.   The end result is that the church becomes a light in the community and draws the lost to the Lord.    Trav

The above does not necessarily replace a job description for an IM.   It merely represents a general outline of the role of an IM.   The role of an IM and/or his/her job description can be uniquely written in each individual case as per the needs of the congregation and the abilities and cooperation of the IM in question.   TI

When You are 2nd Chair

If you are a church staffer who is an associate minister, education director/leader, youth minister, executive minister or involvement minister, this article is for you. If you are the pulpit minister, you might want to read this, too.
In human terms we usually think of the pulpit minister as “first chair” and any other minister ‘on staff’ (e.g. associate, youth, education, involvement, etc.) as “second chair. In some congregations, the associate, youth minister, etc. is subordinate to the pulpit minister. Such is either on purpose or assumption on the part of the second chair staff member.   I must quickly add that associates are generally treated well.
When I use the term “second chair” I am using the term to refer to another staff member that works “with” the pulpit minister (first chair).
Depending upon attitudes and actual job descriptions, being “second chair” can be a wonderful experience or it can be less so. However, correct ‘thinking’ will alleviate much anxiety about this arrangement.
My story: For 30 years I was “first chair.” I was the pulpit minister and held many responsibilities. I was located at one congregation for over 22 years. Everyone in town knew me including a university president, doctors, residents, school officials and hundreds of other people. This was a real “heady” thing for me. I was respected, loved and appreciated by my brethren also. My phone rang off the wall. I was in demand as a speaker. However, I took on too much responsibility and burned out in 2003. It would be 2008 when I would go into my present (second chair) position as involvement minister.
I struggled with being second chair because I had always been prominent and an obvious church leader. People recognized me and called me by name and treasured my advice and my ministry. That all changed with when I entered IM. All of this ‘attention’ disappeared and I felt (a feeling without any base) like I had no influence and no part in church leadership. I was sincere about wanting to lead and have a good influence as second chair. My motives were correct and still are to this day.
If you are or have ever struggled with such feelings I want to introduce you to www.secondchairleadership.com and two men who do a great deal of writing about second chair leadership: Mike Bonem and Roger Patterson of the Leadership Network (Publication). Two of Mike’s (see www.MikeBonem.com) books are Thriving in the Second Chair and Leading from the Second Chair (co authored by Roger Patterson).
But back to your and my situations; what do we do to help us get our thinking straight and influence the church for spiritual and numerical growth?
1. Educate yourself. Fall back on the materials that I’ve recommended herein and two more listed below.   The more you educate yourself and clear up your thinking, the better you will feel about your position. In fact, I think you will celebrate it.
2. You are NOT second class. You are fulfilling a necessary place. Also, you may not be “First Chair” material so God has placed you where He needs you now. Revel in your position and calling. Avoid anxiety and frustration by accepting God’s calling. By the way, there are no second class citizens in God’s kingdom.
3. Great benefits are yours. When I was first chair, I was the one who got called out of bed at 3 am to go to ER. Being second chair, I no longer do this. When I was first chair, I had to come up with all the ideas. Today, I share this responsibility. Second chair folks don’t bear many of the types of responsibilities as do first chair folks. We don’t necessarily have all the strains and stresses as do the folks in the first chair. If you are second chair, you still weld great influence and direction, but you don’t have to bear all the weight and responsibilities of the one above you. Be thankful.
4. And remember, it ain’t about you or the pulpit preacher; it’s all about God! It’s not about who is first, second, third or whatever. It’s all about God. Bottom line: you and I serve God where we are doing what we are doing because we love Him and we love His people. I believe in job satisfaction. However, I believe more strongly in pleasing Him and bringing glory to Him.   He will do with me what He pleases to do with me where I am and with my place in the local church.  My pulpit minister and I are good friends as well as good brothers.   We make a great team and we both have influence in the church and in leadership.  We work and worship with elders and a congregation that love and respect us both.

Note:   in the churches of Christ, we believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus is the Chief Shepherd and that (earthly) Shepherds (sometimes called bish0ps, shepherds, elders or overseers) lead local congregations.    In this sense, all of us are in the second chair because Jesus sits in the first chair.   In another sense, the elders sit in the first chair and church staff, including the pulpit minister sit in the second chair.    One last scenario is the one I have discussed in the body of the article.  I believe that associate ministers, youth ministers, IMs and church education directors may feel like they are second chair folks and that the pulpit minister holds a more influential position than they.   They may feel like they have no influence.   However, they must assert themselves and their influence for the good of the church.   In most congregations this is allowable and even expected.

4 Solid Reasons to Discover Your Spiritual Gift

I have found that 70 to 80% of my brethren want to know what their (dominate) spiritual gift is. However, some brethren seem to have no interest. Their reasoning appears to be: “Well, I know I have a gift and I’m probably using it, so I don’t really need to know what it is.” Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it?  Not really.
Your heart is going to be where you treasure is. In spite of all the busyness in our lives, your core values and priorities are going to show in many ways including in this manner.  Christians that have a heart to serve will seek every advantage to serving well.   In a matter of 10 minutes or less you can know about our predominant spiritual gift(s). If you are a highly spiritual person, you will also want to develop and fully use that gift.
Here are 4 Solid Reasons You Need to (take the time and make the effort) Discover Your Spiritual Gift. These are also good reasons for you to do a Spiritual Gifts Inventory every 5 years because things may change.
Reason #1 – You should want to know how God has created you for His purpose. You are His workmanship created in Christ for good works. Knowing your spiritual gift is part of that design. You will know why God put you on this earth: you will discover your real purpose for living.
Reason #2 – You will begin to serve out of gratitude instead of duty. You will actually look for opportunities to serve and enjoy them. Your service will become “want to” versus “have to.”
Reason #3 – Oddly enough, knowing what God wants you to do will help you in knowing what He has not called you to do. Many Christians are doing ministry in the wrong areas and they are miserable or doing a less than ideal job. When you know what God has designed you for, you will do it well and do it with joy and passion.  I am not advocating that you can never do anything else (e.g. like giving, being merciful, telling others about Jesus, etc.). However, you will definitely feel most comfortable and be most effective in using your God-given gift.
Reason #4 – Knowing what your spiritual gift is and using that gift will contribute heavily to the unity of the local church. When every member of your congregation is busy using his/her gifts, the church hums with excitement and disharmony just isn’t allowed.    This is the “body principle” that Paul addresses in 1 Corinthians 12.
Do you need to discover if your gift has changed? Do you know what your gift is?
If you answer “Yes” to the first question or “No” to the second question, it’s time to do a spiritual gifts inventory.
Spiritual Gift Inventories are all over the internet and your church leadership or office may have one that is used often in your church. One free inventory is found at www.churchgrowth.org   It is a good one and you get the results immediately.  My inventory is I Serve U Inventories.

Evangelistic Ministry

How Ministry Becomes Evangelistic

When it comes to ministry in the church, some brethren like to hear the at least two words “discipleship” and “evangelistic.” They want to hear “discipleship” because ministry is part of being a disciple of Christ. Disciples serve. And, then some like to hear the word “evangelistic” in connection with ministry because ministry that is not evangelistic is not full ministry.
Should all of our ministries in our congregations be evangelistic? In other words, should the ultimate purpose of any ministry be to win souls? In short, the answer is “No.” Many of our ministries are designed to accommodate the brethren in worship, in public Bible study, in encouragement, etc. Of course, such ministries are designed to assist brethren in remaining faithful.
However, when we are serving non-Christians, I personally believe that our goal is to see folks come to a saving knowledge of Christ. Some may disagree with me.
Examples of Ministries that Could be Evangelistic:
VBS
Grief Share
Financial Peace
Divorce Recovery
Benevolence
Church Education
Small Groups
Worship
Celebrate Recovery
Meals on Wheels
In some very real sense, just about any ministry in the church could be evangelistic
How to Make a Ministry Evangelistic:
It starts with intent. Each ministry needs its own mission statement; a mission statement states the ministry’s intentions. If the ministry is to be evangelistic, its intent (to be so) should be mentioned explicitly in the mission statement of that ministry. Let me illustrate this with a very well-known ministry in the Lord’s church:
The Church Education Ministry (the Bible School). A suggested Mission Statement could be:  Bible classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings are offered to provide in-depth study of God’s Word for those who are searching for what the Bible teaches about their salvation, the classes also exist for those who wish to grow in Christ and enjoy the fellowship of like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ, and for those Christians who wish to bring their non-Christians friends and relatives so they can hear the truth and hopefully obey the gospel.
Yes, this is a bit wordy, but it illustrates the intent. This statement, though lengthy, states several intentions (goals or missions) of the Bible study ministry of the local church including the salvation of lost souls. Most of our ministries in the church are ‘internally’ focused (for church members) versus being “externally” focused (for the lost).   In most cases, with which I am familiar, our Bible class ministry is church-centered (for church members and their children).
Most of us know that Bible study (Sunday School and Mid-Week Bible study) is intended for the saved and for children. Yet how many congregations actually ‘gear’ their Bible studies for the lost as well as the saved? You may be asking, “Does our Bible study have to be evangelistic?” I think Bible study is only half of what it could be otherwise. Read Matthew 28:19 which I believe is saying “Teach the lost and teach them again when they are saved.”   My paraphrase.
The same could be said for your other ministries. They could be evangelistic as well as be designed to edify or accommodate the brethren. It all goes back to intent, and the proper or appropriate action will follow the intent, especially if the brethren leading and working in that ministry are serious about their mission statement.
It was the late Clayton Pepper who said that every ministry in the church should be designed to reach the lost. I believe he was right. The church is the means by which the world will come to know the wisdom of God (see Ephesians 3:9-11).  This can be accomplished through the ministries of the church.
When we fail to be evangelistic in all we do in the church, our growth is minimized or non-existent. Possibly this is one explanation of the lack of numerical growth in the Lord’s church over the past several years.
Ministry simply put is living out the gospel; it is the way that we are most like our Lord, who emptied himself and took on the form of a servant.

When They Start Calling You

There are several levels of ministry. Level 1 is exclusive internal ministry. This is where all the ministries of a congregation are focused internally towards meeting the needs of its members. There is a definite need for this level of service.

Level 2 is where a congregation graduates to external ministries. These ministries are focused towards needs in the community (external/outside of the church). Level 2 ministries aren’t necessarily large ministries and yet they are meeting some need in the community.
Level 3 ministries are sometimes called parachurch ministries wherein a church pairs up with a community non-profit and both organizations work together for a common good. In our present congregation, we have several members who have graduated to this level. Our annual “Love Athens” event puts members in contact with local non-profits for assistance, support and ministry. Level 3 is the level to which every Christian and congregation should strive. This is where we really shine as lights in the community.
With this in mind, when folks from your community start calling the local church for help, I believe you have ‘finally arrived.’ You have reached the level, I believe, the Lord wants us all to reach. Yes, we are to serve the brethren first (cf. Gal.6:10) and yet however, we should be ready for every good work (Titus 3:1).
More recently, we have people from our community calling us about Grief Share and Financial Peace University. They are calling us. This simply means that we have met needs, and needs continue to be evident, and we are the ones who can meet them. This is a great thing!   This should also encourage us to carefully choose our outreach ministries.   They should meet real needs.
A good number of folks in your community do not know you exist. We (Athens church of Christ) are known for the church behind Taco Bell. But we are known for more than that. We are also known as the church that helps pay rent and utilities. We are the church that provides help for those who grieve and those in financial binds. We are the church that is involved in the local jail ministry. We are the church that provides ‘bears’ for children in the local ER. And, community folks call us. This is Level 4 of ministry. It is when your congregation is offering something that is really needed and the community responds to it.
At what level is your congregation? Are you striving to grow to the next level?

Hesitation’s Root

When it comes to change, church leadership moves slowly. Sometimes this is good; no one wishes to move quickly and make a huge mistake. However, there are times when change is obvious. And, even then, change comes either slowly or not at all. In many cases where change is obvious, we see indecision.
There are two choices: (1) we either keep things the way they are because of FEAR, or (2) we move ahead in FAITH and make the necessary changes. There is little middle ground. The bottom line is this: Is this God’s Will and will we obey Him out of faith?
Consider some of the fears we have:
FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN – this is a natural tendency. We prefer to stay in our comfort zone and not try anything new or different. Not changing is safe (or at least we think so). But then again, the unfamiliar and the unknown create excitement and more importantly, express faith. We walk by faith and not by sight.
FEAR OF CRITICISM AND REJECTION– this is the “BIGGIE” among church leaders. We are afraid of what the brethren will think or do. We are afraid that we will be criticized and we are afraid that “our idea” will be rejected. We are even more afraid that members will ‘vote’ with their feet and money. Why not be more concerned about pleasing the Lord versus pleasing the brethren. A faithful steward does not seek to please men.
FEAR OF FAILURE– we are afraid that we will fail. What does failure look like? More importantly, what is failure? Sometimes failure is not doing what the Lord wants us to do. We fail to act in faith. We fail to do His will. We fail to try. We fail to ask His blessings. Fear of failure is not a good excuse or reason to not do the right things.
FEAR OF THE RISKS & THE COSTS– many leaders fear the risks and the costs (money, time, effort, etc.) will be too high. I would simply ask, “Is this God’s Will?” If it is God’s Will, He will supply what we need. And, if it is God’s Will, it is worth all the money, effort, time and energy. Somewhere along the way, we have lost the principle of sacrifice for the cause of Christ. We want a comfortable Christianity. Such is not found in the Bible.
God did NOT give us a spirit of fear (cf. 2 Tim.1:7); I submit that ungodly fear is from Satan. Our fear paralyzes us and displeases the Lord. He DID, however give us a spirit of power, love and discipline. We simply need to allow such a spirit to drive us in making decisions and executing God’s Will in our congregations.
