SLI Community-Based Projects are designed for leaders looking to build community ministry initiatives aimed at serving with, rather than to, their neighbors. Community-based projects are for churches, mission organizations, or ad hoc ministry teams who long to be the kind of disciples who truly transform the world through building authentic relationships across the lines that divide us.
SLI coaches will help you BEGIN this difficult, yet vital, work:
- Build a diverse leadership team who will model productive community and develop a strategic plan
- Enroll, educate, and empower persons from all walks of life to be part of the movement
- Gather weekly, share a common meal, and together meet adaptive challenges head-on
- Invest in relationships.
- Navigate the Pond, moving beyond the conventional “give fish, teach to fish” to create an environment where all persons can thrive
