What VI needs

by Nick Barker, College Director

I’ve been praying over the direction of VI this week and have been organizing and preparing for this current semester. Here is a quick list of conclusions that I’ve come to while praying, evaluating, and dialoging with other local pastors.

What our ministry needs to continue to grow

  • Continual transformation in the gospel
  • Living Rooms understanding that they are missional communities and not small groups
  • Men and woman understanding and living out their identity as missionaries
  • Obedience to discipleship – 1) submitting to being discipled and 2) then in turn discipling
  • Deep commitment to pray

What our ministry doesn’t need to grow

  • Louder music
  • A better “vibe” on Sunday nights
  • Cool t-shirts
  • Cool business card size handout (although we just printed off 500)
  • Events and mixers
