Welcome to the Office of Congregational Vitality
It is a pleasure to welcome you to this portion of the Church Center website, where we offer a wide variety of resources and materials for developing and maintaining vital congregations. I am often asked, “What do you mean by a ‘vital congregation’”? This is the working definition which I use:
“Vital congregations are faith communities which invite individuals to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ, which offer opportunities for personal and corporate transformation, and which equip people for Gospel mission in the world.”
Vital congregations, then, are means to an end… and not just ends in themselves. It is with that in mind that we offer these resources for your use, that our congregations might become places where people’s lives are changed, and where we are empowered to share with God in the transformation of all creation.
