HCI and PLD Musings

The Healthy Church Initiative is something the Missouri Conference is doing to help church gather momentum and offer 5 prescriptions for churches to move to a place of health and vitality. I have been sitting with a UM church these past two days talking and mostly, listening. I have been assigned to coach a church after the HCI weekend. For 18 months I will assist them in fulfilling the prescriptions, if they are adopted by the church. There is much more to the process, check the MO Annual Conference website.
Today I can say.
The United Methodist Church is full of great leaders.
People want a vision.
People will follow strong leadership.
Mission cannot be a substitute for Evangelism.
There is hope.
Change is possible.
Growth is possible.
More to follow.
Go in peace and go with God.
