CHURCH REGENERATION

Our Mission

Regeneration is an exciting initiative designed to help your congregation realize their full potential as God’s church. Through this initiative, the Pennsylvania Conference and your church form a special partnership to receive extra resources, training, and mentoring to advance the local church’s growth objectives.

In this partnership, the Conference will:
  • Provide leadership development to partner churches and pastors to grow effective leaders.

  • Provide specialized ministry training to develop and improve the ministries of the local church.

  • Challenge partner churches to grow spiritually as well as numerically.

  • Provide consulting, coaching, and mentoring to support church leaders and pastors as they lead the local church to experience God’s power.

  • Provide accountability to help churches remain focused on their mission.

  • Provide preferential allocation of evangelism resources to accomplish the mission.

In this partnership, the Church will:
  • Commit and remain committed to fulfilling the Gospel commission in their territory.

  • Discover and align the church and it‘s ministries with God’s call and purpose for the church.

  • Allocate resources (time, effort, and finances) consistent with their call.

  • Adopt an annual evangelism cycle that includes sowing, reaping, and discipling new members.

  • Commit to move in the direction of greater congregational health through participating in an intentional process such as Natural Church Development.

  • The church board will host Church Growth Practicums led by the Conference to study, plan, and pray together in order to put in place their customized growth plan.

Church Growth Practicum

An exciting piece of this partnership is the Church Growth Practicum where the Conference will lead church leadership through a variety of proven church growth concepts and principles. During the practicums, the church board will process the material and develop specific strategies for implementation in their local context.

What Churches are Saying About Regeneration

Thank you for presenting the Regeneration practicum in our district. The content was clear and compelling. The content binders you provided were particularly helpful because we were able to follow along with something in our own hands, take notes, and even refer to the information at a later date.

In one of my churches I was having a difficult time forming an evangelism committee, but after the practicum, our members were so excited about what we were learning, we scheduled a practicum follow-up meeting immediately. We were able to utilize the practicum content binders to remind us of what we saw in the practicum that made our hearts burn within us. By the time the follow-up meeting was over, we had formed an evangelism committee and now we have a 12-month evangelism calendar (1-year strategic evangelism plan) in place! To God be the glory. Thank you for your part in His work.

We appreciate what you have done for us! 

Thank you for the emphasis on what God can do and that all things are possible.

There was great content and presentation. The Spirit was here this weekend.

This was a very positive experience. I pray that our people unite and work hard together for Jesus and to grow disciples for Christ.
