If you have been reading my previous posts on the MAP Toolkit, you might probably be asking what can it do to your church or a specific ministry.
Just like any tool, the MAP Toolkit’s overall purpose is to be an instrument to accomplish a task and, in our context, church ministry management.
One of the pastor or ministry leader’s tasks is what Paul reminded Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:6, to “fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you.”
The MAP Toolkit has tools that will help accomplish the task of keeping the ministry passion burning in the church and the community.
Initially, I have identified four things that the toolkit can do. I believe that we will discover more in the course of using the tools.
The MAP Toolkit seeks to:
- Generate information sets that are necessary for a consistent and sustainable church planting and ministry implementation
- Discover and appreciate the indigenous faith-wisdom of the church
- Develop the dynamics of the church from a pastor-centred (or leadership-centred) congregation to a participatory and empowered congregation
- Guide the church in realising and affirming the gifts of every member.
The MAP Toolkit has tools that will help accomplish the task of keeping the ministry’s passion in the church and the community.
So, one of the goals of the MAP Toolkit is to generate information sets that are necessary for consistent church growth planning and ministry implementation.
