Move every member to maturity
Old blog post from 12/6/2011:
Plan how to move every member to the right – The “right” is not political but in terms of the illustration above. The “right” is maturity in Christ in terms of character, convictions regarding Scripture’s teachings, and competency to serve others with the truth of Christ in the Spirit’s power. I have put all the names of the members on a gospel growth chart and identified where they are on the chart. I have not come up with a plan for each member yet. I need to clearly state the next steps for me as a pastor to move each member to the right.
We have 29 members in our church right now. We have a handful considering membership and others we’re sharing the gospel with and pursuing. Here is a “Gospel Growth Grid” (word doc) to help make sure every member has a personal pastor, is located on the grid, and has a suggested move to encourage the person to move to the right in Christian maturity.
