Equipping Church Leaders
We are working hard at equipping and resourcing pastors in the QB Movement. This is essential. We need pastoral leaders who are well trained and well supported in our Movement. I think we are doing this well. In fact, in these days of the Coronavirus with all the creative developments that are emerging, my concern is that some pastors may even be feeling that they are overwhelmed with resources and ideas.
But we are not doing nearly as good a job in resourcing other church leaders (apart from administrators). They often have little help in fulfilling their important calling. This is an issue that we are committed to addressing. So now every second month our ReM Resources will be targeted towards church leaders.
Of course, church leaders have many different roles and needs. Some are elders, some lead small groups, some lead worship, and others support men’s and women’s ministries. Because the needs of these leaders are quite diverse, we will try to offer a wide range of resources so they can choose those that are appropriate and helpful.
