DESCRIPTION

The Vision:

To have at least six churches in Newton Presbytery commit to participate in a collaborative process of learning and implementation of the six missional ministry practices. This covenant community comprised of clergy, elders, and interested congregants will gather every other month over a year’s time. Special invitations will be offered to the churches north of Route 80 (where events will be held) but any church in the presbytery is invited to participate.

The Commitment:

Churches commit to:

1. Participate in all six sessions to be held on Saturday mornings once every other month.

2. Host at least one Saturday morning session.

3. Have the session approve participation in this covenant community.

4. Contribute $200 to cover costs.

5. Allow for the pastor to participate in a pastor’s support/coaching group.

6. Implement the missional ministry practices and report back to the larger group their success and failures.

(Churches come in all shapes and sizes, but congregational commitment to this process is key. It cannot be just the pastor in attendance. Try to form a group of folks committed to the vibrancy of your church and its ministry who will commit to this covenant community.)

Pastors commit to:

1. Participate in a support/coaching group to be held a week prior to the Saturday events.

ALL PASTORS OF NEWTON PRESBYTERY ARE INVITED!
