Church Renewal Ministry

A Description of Ministry Opportunities

Four Days of Renewal

This is a week of renewal that begins on Sunday morning and ends on Wednesday night. It includes noonday studies, men's breakfast, staff meetings and other needed times of ministry. These days carry a theme that focuses on personal relationships with the Lord, family, and church.

One Day of Renewal

This Sunday is used to accomplish in a concentrated effort a ministry to adults encouraging and teaching them in relationships. The approach is to take four times (perhaps Sunday School, morning worship, the hour prior to the night service, and the evening service itself) and teach couples, adults, men only, or as needs would dictate.

Weekend of Renewal

In a retreat setting with couples or men (as desired), four teaching sessions, two Friday evening and two Saturday morning, would deal with a wide range of relationship skills and principles in marriage and family life.

Staff Retreat for Renewal A time alone and apart with the full church staff where needed principles for relationships and ministry are taught.
