Introduction to the POM/Purpose & Goals

Introduction to the POM/Purpose & Goals

 

This class will focus on what a philosophy of ministry really is, why you need it and how you use it to effectively minister in the name of Christ.  We will introduce you to common language and understandings to help your team minister on the same page and in the same direction.

The purpose of the RYM POM is rooted in Matthew 28 and Jesus’ Great Commission.  Ministry exists to “reach” youth for Christ and “equip” them for service of Christ.  People are “reached” when they encounter the living Christ in his Word, empowered by the Holy Spirit. People are “equipped” when they engage the living Christ among his people, through prayer, study of the Bible, the Sacraments, and fellowship of God’s people.  The POM also identifies four categories in which to define our goals. This class will unpack this material and explain/establish these important concepts.
