Answering the call to serve God and his people ironically creates more questions? What does it truly mean, “…to go forth into the world, rejoicing in the Power of the Spirit?” What will be my ministry? What form will this ministry take? Who and where might God be calling me to serve? What is this desire upon my heart for God’s people and how will it manifest itself in practical terms?
Go Forth: ON-PURPOSE® opens your Diaconate training by giving you the opportunity to co-creatively clarify and build the foundations of your ministry from the beginning of your training. You’ll begin by defining your personal purpose so your identity is truly anchored in Christ. Next, you’ll clarify who you are to serve as a people group and their needs. Finally, you’ll build a Service Model™, a simple one-page plan, to put the pieces all together.
Over the course of the next two years, this ON-PURPOSE framework will develop and deepen. As you grow in Christ so too will your ministry come to light. Upon graduation, you can already be in momentum in the world. Thanks be to God!
