The imagery of a human body is consistently used throughout Scripture to illustrate the identity and activity of the Church – how the people of God relate to one another and function together. Some are hands and some are feet. Some are fingers and some are toes. Some eyes and some ears. (1 Corinthians 12:14-20) In essence, we’re not all called to do the same thing, but we’re all absolutely capable of doing something. That’s the Body of Christ.
Specifically, as we look at how the cooperative efforts of the Body of Christ work themselves out through the care of the orphaned and vulnerable, we find the same premise to hold true – we’re not all called to do the same thing, but we’re all capable of doing something. We all have a role to play – some more visible, some more subtle – all of significant importance in serving the cause of children and families in need.
So how do we communicate that message to our church? How do we engage everyone from the student to the senior citizen in caring for the orphaned and vulnerable? In a practical sense, how does that message play itself out in the structure and strategy of our ministry? In this webinar we will explore how we don’t just want to lead a peripheral orphan care ministry that a few people in our church are involved with, but rather want to work towards establishing a culture of orphan care that everyone in our church has a role to play in. We’ll highlight key principles to consider and provide practical tools, real-life models and implementable “next steps” for you and your leadership team.
