This book is a basic guide for Christian leaders to practically help congregations develop strategies to nurture Christian faith in individuals, homes, congregations, and communities. Do you wonder what vibrant faith looks like in a congregation? Using the Milestones Ministry Frame is a great place to start! It is a framework of principles, practices, and characteristics necessary for Christian faith formation.
The Milestones Ministry Frame helps
connect all of a congregation’s programs into one vibrant faith ministry, rather than
having several disconnected activities under one roof. As a result,
congregations stay focused on two foundational tasks in everything they
do—Christian faith formation and community outreach. Whether just
getting started or looking for best practices, this book outlines what vibrant faith development should look like from the perspective of various
congregational ministries, including evangelism, Christian education,
worship and preaching, youth and family, and stewardship. As the second
book in the vibrant faith series, this is an excellent follow up to From the Great Omission to Vibrant Faith: The Role of the Home in Renewing the Church.This book is an outstanding guide to use for congregational leadership study and strategic planning.
