Purpose-Driven Church

• “Moving members into ministry should be an ongoing process, not a special emphasis. Your placement process should focus on empowering people, not on filling positions. You’ll have a much higher success rate with those you place in ministry if you focus on the SHAPE of the individual, not the needs of this institution. Remember, ministry is about people, not programs.”

Empowering People

• The word “empower” means to energize something or someone. Building upon the foundation of CLASS 101 and 201, we define “M-power” as “Energizing Maturing Members for Ministry.”

M-power Passage

• “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
