What We Do

Missional Training: The association can provide personalized training events for each church to help them identify ways they can engage their neighbors and the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We can also help churches understand what a healthy church looks like, help them evaluate their church and we can dream with the church how to make the necessary changes to their current situation to develop a stronger and healthier church for the future. 

 

Conflict Resolution: The association can assist churches or individuals in dealing with conflict that is biblical and reflects the spirit of Christ as He calls us to be engaged in ‘one another’. 

 

Small Group or Sunday School Training: The association can assist churches to identify ways to utilize these programs of the church to enhance their capability to help its members grow in their faith.  These can also be used to identify and develop leaders in the church. 

 

Church Planting: The association desires to see it’s churches ‘make disciples’ which will be reproducible.  If this happens, then we will have an organic process of seeing not only churches grow but also see churches planted from this growth.  We also will work with our missional partners to plant churches through our healthy churches of the association. 

 

Pulpit Supply: The association has a list of preachers that have been observed and approved by pastors of the association and/or convention.  You can also contact Chet Daniels of Redeemer Church in Urbana for preachers they train for this purpose.  His contact info can be found in the church directory.
