Developing Leadership and Outreach in a Church

By New Churches Team

The Importance of Leadership

Cory Ball planted Redemption Community Church on January 26, 2020. They had just six services before the pandemic closed their doors for 28 weeks. Redemption believes that good leadership is important and wanted to cultivate that leadership in their church while also finding ways to do outreach in the community during the pandemic. Ball and his two other staff members nominated 20 people within the church for a leadership cohort. That cohort was then divided into three teams with a unique task.  

Creating a Challenge

The three teams in the leadership cohort were challenged to a competition. They would each come up with an idea for outreach in their community. The goal was to reach 1,000 people in the community and expose them to either the church or the gospel. They wanted to have extended exposure to this group, so they were also charged with finding an idea that would allow them to connect via social media or by giving their address, email address, or signing up for a newsletter. Once the three teams prepared their ideas, they met with outside judges to present the options and a winning idea was selected. The nature of the competition caused the best ideas to quickly rise to the top. 

Outreach That Meets Needs

People in the community and all around the world are dealing with fear, anxiety, and loneliness. The goal of the outreach project was to lead people searching for answers to those issues to the church and Jesus.
