The Vehicle for Lay Involvement:
Start a Pastor’s class for new people and those whose gifts are not known.
The Pastor’s Breakfast / Lunch or once a month informational meeting.

The best method is to offer a pastor’s breakfast during the Sunday School hour.

Hear the pastor’s vision for the church and reaching the city for Christ….
Make sure visitors are saved.

WHY “THIS” CHURCH?
For God so loved the world that He gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

WHY GOD PUT ME HERE?
What am I suppose to do?
God does not give away junk!
If He has given me a gift it is important, and it must be what He expects me to be involved in doing!
Lets take inventory?
The rest of us will continue our study of God’s gifts He has given to us:
We now teach on the Spiritual gifts as we did on the Wednesday or Sunday night.
We involve the laity in training in the Team they choose by their passion
But we give them a position on that team according to their gifts.
NO LAITY SHOULD BE ASKED TO SERVE IN ANY POSITION UNTIL THEY HAVE HAD TRAINING FOR THAT TASK!
4. Four areas are covered in this pastor’s meal: Church’s Vision, Evangelism training (conversion), Spiritual gifts discovery and training, and discipleship through lay involvement.
