Living Grace Fellowship, the GCI congregation in Kansas City, Missouri, has been working to refine its organizational structure and programs to align with a clearly defined “discipleship pathway” that has four steps (see the illustration, below): Connect (with an open heart), Grow (in grace and knowledge), Serve (with willing hands) and Go (with ready feet). The congregation has produced resources that unpack their pathway details, including a PowerPoint presentation, sermons and bulletin handouts. You’ll find these resources on their website at http://lgfkc.gcichurches.org/cgsg.htm.
Living Grace Fellowship leaders, including its pastor, Jason Frantz, are being assisted in the process of developing and implementing this pathway through the Transformational Church consulting services that are offered by GCI Church Administration and Development (CAD). For information about these consulting services, see www.gci.org/cad_services#Consulting. For information about a discipleship pathway, go to www.gci.org/strategy.
