New Connect, Grow, Serve, Go Adult Ministry Strategy Resources

I have talked here before about LifeWay’s Adult Ministry Strategy—Connect, Grow, Serve, Go. Use the blog search box and you will find several blog posts about it. And I have talked with many of you personally about it and it’s applications as I have made church visits.

Now, LifeWay has available for you a book to help churches and leaders of groups better understand and implement this Adult Ministry Strategy. Connect Grow Serve Go: Moving Toward a Balanced Approach to Adult Ministry can be purchased for $3.95 from LifeWay.com. To compliment the book, a conference plan and presentation have also been created that can be used to train adult ministry leaders. A zipped file is now available that includes the following items:


· CGSG booklet in PDF format (permission granted to freely distribute)
· CGSG explained (a quick overview)
· conference plan
· presentation for leading a conference (PowerPoint)
· presentation backgrounds
· CGSG logo art (for use in church publications)
· order information

This free zipped file can be downloaded from LifeWay's nExtra community (www.lifeway.com/nextra). Look for it in the Adult Ministry Forum in the "Share Ideas" tab. Or, you can access and download the CGSGpack.zip file at
workspace.office.live.com by signing into my account at pat.ford@lifeway.com using the password "PASSWORD".

Thanks for passing these resources on to other ministry leaders.

Until next time…share the journey and enjoy the ride!
