STRATEGIC INITIATIVES: January 2021 Update
EPHESIANS 4 CULTURE
An Ephesians 4 Culture is where believers use their gifts to honor Jesus by developing each other.
- Ephesians 1-3: Foundational Doctrine
- Ephesians 4-6: Applicational Practice
In 2020, each campus leadership team developed a Campus Charter that determines the specific spiritual needs of each campus and specific yearly goals to best develop followers of Jesus at their campus and share Jesus in the surrounding communities.
We have also developed a Campus Empowerment framework that allows each campus leadership team to make the best decision for their local campus while maintaining the doctrine, mission, and values of The Bible Chapel.
CONNECTION AND CARE
Amber Walker and Emily Nicholson have assembled a team that enables everyone at TBC to find a place to connect and engage with other believers.
Over the last two years, Jenn Booth—our Director of Strategic Initiatives—developed, piloted, and implemented a framework for caregiving. This was handed off to Karen Rine who serves as our Care Coordinator. We have a prayer team who prays regularly for those in need and a prayer list is distributed widely for prayer and for addressing practical needs. While we can always be better at care, this ministry has been a huge win at TBC.
Check out these updates in a recent sermon from Ron.
