"Describe Your Church In a Word"

Thank you friends for taking a moment of your time to read this blog. This issue also serves a dual purpose. This blog will also be featured in my monthly newsletter for Grace United Methodist Church in Crete, Nebraska.

As I began preparing for the October News Letter, a brilliant thought came to mind. Like most Pastors, I read a variety of books and magazines. There is an article in the May/June issue of “Ministry Today” by Shawn A. Akers, about the 21 most influential Christian Ministries. That amazing light bulb in my head prompting that brilliant thought was, “why are these ministries influential?” 
The obvious is that these are ministries ranging in size from 10,000 to more than 46,000 members.  For example, the article mentions One Hope Mission Church located in Lebanon having ministries in neary100 countries and with social media officially reaching one billion people weekly. In their 2030 vision statement, Pastor Hoskins shared their goal is to reach 4.2 billion. Through newspaper ads, they enrolled 450,000 in 22 Arabic-speaking countries. Talk about evangelism and using the internet!
Well, the specifics of this brilliant idea, was to take ONE WORD from the opening paragraphs for each of these 21 ministries, and to share this word with you. I was hoping and wondering if I could take on such a task based upon what Shawn A. Akers wrote introducing and describing these highly influential ministries. In the next paragraph, I have dissected and listed for you a total of 21 words from the opening paragraphs of Akers article, “21 CHURCHES AND MINISTRIES THAT ARE MOST INCLUENCING THE 21 CENTURY CHURCH.”
The 21 most interesting words I found in the opening paragraphs are: globally, children, innovative, love, vision, healing, passion, unreached, evangelistic, prayer, gospel, involved, challenging, called, immeasurable, spiritual, inspiration, movement, expanding, compassionate, and Jesus.

Their ministry names in this order are: Antioch Community Church, Association of Related Churches, Bethel Church, Christ for all Nations, City Team Ministries, Convoy of Hope, the Dream Center, Empowered 21, Gateway Church, International House of Prayer, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Life, Marriage Today, New Life Covenant Church, One Hope, The Potter’s House, The Ramp, Saddleback Church, Somebody Cares International, Teen Mania and Youth With a Mission. Indeed, at Grace, we influence many people.

Describe your Church in ONE WORD. Write it down and drop your WORD in the Grace Suggestion Box in the narthex. It will be a joy to bless and share your WORD with the People of God. See you Sunday in worship!
