1. Introduce participants to the missional church concept.
2. Consider the type of leadership needed for missional ministry.
3. Assess the readiness of church and leadership to engage in missional ministry in the community.
4. Understand the needs of a potential community ministry partner and begin thinking about a strategy to engage with them

(Note: Pinnacle could provide coaching for individual leaders on a contract basis to develop and implement a strategy.)

Session Three: “Will We Know the Future if We See it?”

What are the opportunities for missional ministry in your community? How do you discover them?

Assignment: Schedule a one hour meeting with the leader of a ministry in your community that might be a partner for your congregation.

Prepare a report that includes:
o Name and location of the ministry (including address, website, contact information).
o Name and contact information of executive director/lead person.
o Mission statement of the organization/entity
o Answer these questions:

o Who do they serve?
o How are they organized to do this?
o Who provides the service/ministry (staff, volunteers, etc.)?
o How are they financed?
o What are the most important things you learned about this service/ministry?
o How could your church partner with this ministry?
