LAY MINISTRY is Strong and Becoming Stronger at COR At Church of the Resurrection we believe the biblical injunction that “Christ gave…pastors and teachers to equip his people for ministry, so that the Body of Christ may be built up and become mature…” (Ephesians 4:11-13) Training the Laity for Ministry includes the Bethel Bible Series equipping believers with biblical knowledge (20 weeks in the Old Testament and 20 weeks in the New Testament) and a strategic grasp of Scripture for serving. Also, our new Stephen Ministry equips and supervises lay care givers by offering 18 modules in preparation for one-on-one distinctively Christian caregiving. Our Men’s Support Group is transitioning to adopt the Evangelism Explosion Discipleship Training (twelve weeks of training) which includes in-depth understanding of friendship evangelism, discipling, and faith sharing. We always encourage lay leadership stepping up and blessing the body of Christ with innovative and targeted ministries. For example, Brian Kolb leads GriefShare, Chuck Thomsen leads Financial Peace University, and Pam Givens led Vacation Bible School. A team of lay volunteers leads Pioneer Clubs for Children. Many examples throughout the church remind us that all believers are to be ministers using the gifts which God has given them for God’s glory and the edification of God’s people. In 2019 we’re prayerfully preparing for a Young Mother’s Bible Study, Celebrate Recovery ministry, and Divorce Care with Divorce Care for Kids. Is God calling you to help, to become engaged in ministering to people in their need, and experience the reward of making a difference in the lives of people?
