THE YEAR OF EMPOWERMENT & IMPACT
2020 VISION/DIRECTION: “THE YEAR OF EMPOWERMENT & IMPACT!!!”
“Empowering the People of God to Impact the World for God”
“But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth” Act 1:8
The Expansive and Exponential results that have occurred since the 1st Century Church was because of Apostolic Empowerment, Jesus empowered others to continue the work and, because they were empowered, it caused them to have a life-changing impact on their local, social, relational, and global world.
The vision and direction for the Year 2020 is to follow the example of Christ so that an empowered people of God can impact the world for God.
The local church has, for too long, lacked involvement and engagement because we have lacked empowerment. Empowerment engages others in the work. It is the ability or power given to someone to do something
Empowerment is a set of measures designed to increase the degree of involvement in people and communities in order to enable them to represent their interests in responsible and self-determined ways.
Empowerment is Delegating Authority
Empowerment is Offering Opportunity
Empowerment is Assigning Responsibility
The Year 2020 can be most impactful as empowerment take place from the pulpit to the pew and from leadership to laity.
The area of Focus for the year will be:
Empower Members in the Pew to Impact Membership
Empower Worshippers to Impact Worship
Empower Ministry Workers to Impact the Work of the Ministry
Empower Families to Impact Family Life
Empower Givers to Impact Giving
Empower Witnesses to Impact Soul-Winning
