3 relations to build January Week 4

Hey Jedi and Padawan, Let's be grateful. Because we have so many reasons to be

  • The winter's not too bad so far!
  • We have had 6 new volunteers join our forces in Trek, Large Group, Quest and Dive.

We've had 34 news families register for the First Time this past Sunday alone !

We had 554 kids, a new record high! And you guys rocked it

Our time of prayer and fasting is so good.

We're almost done. Please consider joining us, at least online. Let's finish strong like I've told a Jedi and as the Apostle Paul states.

You need to be faithful. Then you will do what God wants. You will receive what he has promised Hebrews 10:36

I've been praying for you, mentioning you names, lifting up our teams, believing in a great year.

The Miracle Is In The Mundane

To accomplish anything in life takes a fight, some work, and some struggle. When we fail to succeed in something we often put false limitations on ourselves. We don’t win every fight in life – sometimes we win and sometimes we learn. Struggles are prime real estate for God to do miracles for us. We often wait on God to bring the miracle when He’s waiting on us to bring the muscle. The mundane instructions of God often lead to the miracle we’ve been waiting for. God’s power is demonstrated when our power to act is evident. Always expect God to do what we can’t do, but never expect God to do what we can do.

Take some time to either re-listen to the message or dig a little deeper. The Spirit of God wants to do something in our lives, yours and mine.

Stupid sentence of the newsletter, well, a groaner for you : A thief broke into my house last night. He started searching for money so I woke up and searched with him.

FOR COACHES AND TEAM LEADERS

I encourage each of you be part of this great night. Pastor Daniel has an "on time" word to share with us and this will be a night you DO NOT want to miss! I also encourage to invite someone you are currently developing - someone who is not currently a team leader, coach, or director. It will be held here at the Fred campus Tuesday, February 21, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm

Childcare is provided. And oh yeah, RSVP is necessary.

I want to offer an opportunity for someone to serve on that evening. Since we are offering childcare, we will need people to help in our environments. It's an all-campus event so we do have other KP people from elsewhere serving with us, team mates as well as team leaders.

We want to ask live our people in our Rallies and make "personal asks".

IMPORTANT UPCOMING DATES

  • January 9th to 29th - 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting
  • January 29th VO @ 8:30 & 4pm and Baptism
  • February 3rd - FEARLESS

3 relationships to build

I had the priviledge to share this thought with our staff this morning. I thought it could be useful to you too :). I'll do the first one for this week.

You can use this for your rallies

RELATIONSHIP #1 : Friendship

1st LAYER

MINISTRY IS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE, SO WE LOVE ON OUR PEOPLE FOR...

  • who they are: a child of GOD
  • who they can be
  • the person they are, and God loves them, really, so should we

We shouldn't love on them because of...

  • what they can do for you or me
  • what they can do for your environment
  • what they can do for the church
  • they fill needs we might have (missing teammates, places to fill on teams, etc)

2nd LAYER

one on our values is "WE CHOOSE HONOR"

We perceive and receive everyone as a child of God

3rd LAYER

WE FOLLOW JESUS' EXAMPLE

  • He loved and accepted all those who came to him...and those he went to !
  • He chose amongst his disciples 12 people to become apostles. why ? Because he wanted them to be with him in Mark 6: 7

4th LAYER

People need to trust you, me, us. And their trust is based on the fact that we love them for who they are. (Simon Sinek, "Leaders eat last")

5th LAYER

Be a friend to people you lead. Befriend them. Love them. YOU grow when you meet people (Proverbs 27:17). And as Salomon puts it :

Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do. Ecclesiastes 4:9
The things you have heard me say, entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

A little reminder of some goals :)

  1. Become 3 deep in all of our leadership positions by June 30th
  2. Have 1 ready-to-go padawan each by February 28th
  3. Effective communication by February 15th
  4. Recruit 30 NEW volunteers by March 31st (we already have 6 of them in our pipeline from last weekend's VO)
  1. Matching Arena and your schedules by January 31st: new notes
  2. Arena Clean up by January 31st... so we don't cluster for no reason and allow new recruits to join quickly : communication lists active and precise
  3. Different "Weekly Jedi News": one for coaches and leaders, one for our team mates
  4. Training to come : "Recruiting", "3 questions to ministry" and "Parentalk"
  5. Meetings with possible new leaders : "See it, Say it"
  6. Speed up connection process : "Orientation & Connection Process"
  7. Do less, train and coach more...which doesn't mean you neglect your tasks!
  8. I will lead some VIP's once in a while
  9. ...
Let's move from LPM to PDM
May the Spirit be with you
