Flourishing Update - September 30, 2022

Volunteerism: What does it look like in this new era?

Robb Warren, Executive Director, Global Leadership Network Canada &

Rhonda Courteau, Location Pastor - Orleans, LIFECENTRE Ottawa, ON

This year Flourishing Congregations Institute will be sharing research and practices around flourishing congregations in Canada from a ministry practitioner or a researcher through videos. The intention is to feature content from people across theological traditions and Canadian regions. This month we are focusing on volunteerism and equipping the saints. In October we will look at clergy well-being and resiliency.


Recommend Resource

Finding Our Way: Reclaiming the First-Century Church in the Twenty-First Century

Alan Hirsch

What if the way the Church is "doing church" is the very reason the world is seeing less of Jesus in it every day? Beginning with the biblical basics, Jeff Lockyer walks readers through the underlying theology and practical application of how Southridge Community Church has approached ministry for nearly a quarter century. While providing a fresh approach to ministry, the book stimulates how to think, not what to think. It's written by a local church practitioner for local church practitioners.
