The Basics of Doing a Spiritual Growth Campaign
Who’s Who on the Team
Start planning and training for the campaign about two months prior to the launch. Begin by building a team of Campaign Coordinators. Each team member will assist you by coordinating a specific component of the campaign.
What is the role of the pastor? Set a vision for the campaign and communicate it to the church. Give spiritual leadership to the campaign.
At the head is the Pastor, who gives spiritual leadership to the campaign, casting the vision and motivating the congregation to get involved.
As the vision-setter and spiritual leader of this church-wide spiritual growth campaign, you will be building on the following five principles:
1. Unified Prayer
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain (Psalm 127:1a NIV)
Will you commit to consistent prayer for the campaign?
2. Exponential Thinking
Lord, do great things once again in our time; make those things happen again in our own days (Habakkuk 3:2b NCV)
Will you commit to setting goals only God can fulfill?
3. Concentrated Focus
The community of believers was of one heart and mind… And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved (Acts 4:32,47 NAB)
Will you clear the calendar and involve eveyone in your church in the campaign?
4. Multiple Reinforcements
They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers (Acts 2:42 MSG)
Will you commit to providing a way to carry out all the vital habits (Weekend services, Daily devotional, Small groups, etc)?
5. Behavioural Teaching
Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only (James 1:22 NKJV)
Will you commit to challenging people to make gradual spiritual commitments?
