Membership and Ministry Starter Kit (Combining 7 SGs & 4 DISC)
Once members have gone through the Meaning & Purpose class, they should be introduced to the Membership & Ministry resources. There are four different (7, 9, 16 and 23) spiritual gifts lists Member's Guides. The 4 in 1 and Personality Facilitator's Manual and PowerPoint Presentation includes 4 Spiritual Gifts Lists in 1 manual. The facilitator can review and then easily choose which list his or her church prefers to use.
Getting members involved in the ministries of your church is imperative for their spiritual growth. Members are more apt to volunteer once they first join or make a commitment to your church. This course purposely does not wait until a later class to recruit members because they will feel more obligated when they first join, rather than waiting till later when they have settled into being "spectators" or "investigators."
The Membership & Ministry Class can be taught as a stand-alone New or Current Members' Class or as part of the Personalizing My Faith complete package. All members, whether new or old, should discover their giftedness in order to get involved in the ministries of their church. God's biblical plan of discipleship is to assimilate members into their local body so they will be "jointly fit together," while "every joint supplies to the need of the body."
Featuring the popular Spiritual Gifts Survey and Uniquely You DISC Questionnaire, the Member's Guide identifies members' primary and secondary spiritual gifts and personality types. The Member's Guide also demonstrates how spiritual gifts and personality types relate to each other, plus where they fit best in the ministries of your church. Once each member's giftedness is identified and fitted for ministry, the Member's Guide also focuses on Biblical Conflict Resolution. This is so important! Most people get uninvolved and resist involvement in ministry because of misunderstandings and abuses. Most of the problems in the church today are not theological. They are relational & personality clashes and spiritual gifts conflicts with other church or staff members. Getting members involved in ministries, plus teaching them how to avoid and resolve conflicts while involved will help them continue "growing" step-by-step toward Spiritual Maturity.
Promote your Membership & Ministry Class as a "Uniquely You Seminar or Class," NOT as another "program" to help members get involved in the ministries of your church. Most people don't want to be confronted with their responsibility to get involved in the church. Most people want to hear how to deal with their everyday problems & to get, rather than to give. Most people are not mature Christians who want to serve the Lord. Promote the seminar or class as an exciting opportunity to discover your divine design! Discover how God delicately and intricately made every believer to enjoy life rather than just endure it. Learn how God made you in a dynamic way to identify and exercise your giftedness. Experience the joy of the Lord by discovering how and why God made you, plus receive the ultimate blessing of learning how to magnify God in all that you do. Use the first Personalizing My Faith Meaning & PurposeClass to encouraged members to seriously pray about completing their Membership & Ministry Profile.
