This page will grow as we develop and live into our commitment to vitality throughout the Florida-Bahamas Synod.
What is “Congregational Vitality”?
Congregational vitality is an intentional and informed process by which congregations can creatively pursue the future that God has planned for them. It begins with an ancient prayer practice by which to encounter God’s Dreams for the immediate future. It culminates with an awareness of the design by which God’s Dreams come true and an action plan to make it so. In between is a disciples journey to build confidence, creativity, and character for the community called “church”.
Vitality Training Events/Retreats
There are a series of training events around the synod for congregations and leaders to learn more about this dynamic journey and discern whether they might be being called to engage it in their context. If your conference already held a training event/retreat or you would like more information about this process, please contact your DEM (North: firstname.lastname@example.org; South: email@example.com).
