April 21 – Systems in the Church: Outreach with Dave Malnes from Praise and Proclaim

·         As of 2019 the WELS had 1,269 congregations.

·         Less than half of those churches had one or more newly confirmed adults.

·         That means over 50% of our congregations did not have one new adult join their congregation in 2019.

·         Only 6% of WELS congregations had 10 or more new adult members.

Outreach is a needed core system in every church. It addresses the question, “How are we as a congregation planning to continuously build new relationships with people, plant seeds about Jesus, cultivate those seeds, invite people to be a part of God’s family and then walk alongside new members in the church?”

Dave Malnes is the president of Praise and Proclaim Ministries. He is a certified WELS staff minister with more than twenty years of experience in evangelism. Praise and Proclaim was launched in 2016 with the mission of enhancing the gospel ministries of WELS congregations by providing comprehensive personal evangelism training. Relying on a methodology that is simplified, well-organized, and experiential, Praise and Proclaim has provided training for over 1000 WELS members in twenty-one states.

Praise and Proclaim helps to address the equipping part of the outreach system. Dave will share how he trains people. Join us to learn how you and your congregation can be equipped to share Jesus! Sessions are offered on Wednesday, April 21st at 9:00AM or 7:00PM CT. Cost is $19 per person.

Identifying, Empowering and Developing Leaders in Your Congregation

Identifying leaders in churches can sometimes be like finding a needle in a haystack. And sometimes, the problem can be that we just expect leaders to appear. How did Jesus identify, develop and empower leaders? He chose ordinary people to serve in His kingdom but he was strategic in developing and empowering them. We can learn a lot from Jesus. Let’s dig in together and learn how to recognize, equip and unleash passionate leaders.

Identifying Spiritual Gifts in Yourself and Others

Join us for this lively hour and a half interactive discussion on Spiritual Gifts. Paul writes, in 1 Corinthians 12:1 “Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.” And yet many Christians don’t know what their spiritual gifts are. Together, we’ll dig into the scriptural bases. You will take a Spiritual Gift assessment and identify your top 5 spiritual gifts. Then you’ll learn to become discerning regarding the gifts of others. If you want to know more about your own gifts, be better at recognizing the gifts in others or want to learn how to teach on spiritual gifts this webinar is for you! You’ll walk away with resources you can use with others

Understanding and Working More Effectively with Different Personalities

Ever been on a team of people and had one person just irritate you? Often those people have a personality opposite yours or just like yours and yet they have a different perspective. Successful team relationships are built around trust and valuing what each person brings to the team. The business world gets this better than the church. But teaching on and understanding personalities can help others to serve more effectively together. Register for this engaging webinar to understand how we are each uniquely wired right down to our personalities. We’ll give you tips on how to work more effectively with different personality types.

In this webinar we’ll help you understand what makes up a church’s culture, give you some assessments to assess your culture and talk about how to strategically change the culture of your church.
