Some of my Projects
I have been utilizing the SLI process in my own ministry area through the development of what we call 12×12 teams: 12 persons committing for 12 months to grow as disciples and leaders who begin their own teams. I noticed that leaders and discipleship making was happening in pockets and they lacked fruit. Now, as a team we make disciples who make disciples. This process is exciting and I love to share the concepts with all who will listen!
Young Clergy District Team
This team was composed of 12 young clergy who met for 1 year. Before this team was initiated there were only a handful of pastors in a covenant group. Our team members developed their own covenant groups and the result was over 40 clergy persons participating in covenant together.
District Lay Team
Laity in the district with 103 churches were scattered from one another. A group of 12 lay leaders began meeting and pulled together some of the gifted laity into one team. The result of the team led to better work together in the district and the beginnings of a vision of over 100 churches working together instead of as silos.
In 2016, I worked with the cabinet of Eastern Pennsylvania Conference and helped them form a ministry action plan for navigating into the future in these most challenging times. We also focused on large church pastors who eventually created their own ministry action plans.
