Back in 2001, I developed a concept for an annually recurring class that I would teach in my church every January as a refresher course in church membership to prepare for our “Recommitment Sunday” in the first week of February.
The class I taught in January 2002 contained a great deal of information on my personal philosophy of ministry as well as basic information on membership in our church. Therefore, there is a good amount of material in this edition of the class that is not transferable. However, there remains much that can be gleaned and applied to any church situation.
The following year, I changed the class significantly to focus more on reviewing our core values in the context of table discussions rather than large class lecture. In this format, it is much more transferable to other contexts.
In this above zip file, I include both editions of the class material in MS Word format as well as a PowerPoint file for the original edition.
