BRINGING LIFE AND VITALITY TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
Our team sees itself partnering with pastors and churches to discover God’s plan for their ministry. We believe every church is different – planted in a distinguishable community, led by a different leader, and used by God for distinct purposes. Corpus helps you discover these distinguishable aspects and helps you develop a customized six-step plan for revitalizing your church.
The “Six-Step Plan”
Step 1: Uses a Nehemiah 1 approach to help you DISCOVER the current
state of the ministry.
Step 2: Uses a Revelation 2-3 CONVERGENCE exercise to reposition the
church where God wants it to be.
Step 3: The Vision PYRAMID – answers the six directional questions from
Step 4: The PATH – considers the five Great Commission passages of the
New Testament and details the steps a church will follow to make disciples.
Step 5: The LADDER – plans out the steps for leader development.
Step 6: The TOOLKIT – a biblical integration model for implementing the plan.
Most pastors were not trained in seminary or Bible college for these kinds of tasks. Year after year, these issues are listed in survey after survey as the hardest parts of a pastor’s job. It is not that these leadership responsibilities are difficult to learn or hard to implement. It is that pastors and church leaders were never trained to understand their importance and most have not discovered how these responsibilities are described in Scripture.
The Corpus mission is to educate, equip and empower church leaders to fulfill these “overseer” roles in the church. We know pastors want their churches to do well. We know most pastors are unsure and feel ill-equipped to do what they are asked to do. We know pastors desire to honor God and be faithful in their ministry. Many pastors have never been equipped to do what they are being asked to do.
