Engaging Your Community in Mission and Ministry

In 2014, the Center for Congregations, an Indiana-based resource that helps Indiana congregations address their challenges and opportunities, offered Indiana congregations an opportunity to attend a workshop on how to help your congregation develop a mission-oriented focus. Presenter Joy Skjegstad, a national speaker and consultant on nonprofit management and ministry development, and founder of the Institute for Ministry Leaders, a university-based training program that builds the management capacity of churches and other ministry organizations, addressed a range of strategies to help faith communities support community development and implement effective community ministry. Joy complemented her presentation with a short list of resources that address various aspects of faith-based mission focus and ministry delivery. For more community ministry resources, see our article, "Best Resources for Community Engagement." For help to refocus your congregation on community ministry, see our article, "Take Action: Community Engagement." You might also appreciate our resource, "Learning (and Relearning) How to be Hospitable.”
