mission

 

To work with churches in times of stress to encourage and equip for revitalized life and witness. 

November 16               BETTER TOGETHER

The multi-site movement, normally associated with larger churches, also creates an option for small and mid-sized churches. Where two (or more) sister churches are located in relative proximity, people and resources can be combined to create one stronger church in several locations. For a plateaued or declining church open to essential change, transition to a church of two sites can be a path to revitalization. For a stronger church willing to sacrifice, nurture relationships, and practice sensitivity, a multi-site meld can expand ministry. On Saturday, November 16, at Manheim Mennonite Church, 201 West High Street, Manheim (Pa.), the Center for Anabaptist Studies of Evangelical Seminary and Barnabas Initiatives are planning a one-day seminar to assist churches exploring a meld strategy for optimum health, growth, and mission.  For more information, go to: https://evangelical.edu/events/barnabas.
