1 The Lay Mobilization INSTITUTE LMI Overview

2 ABIDING IN CHRIST: JN 15:4-6 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. NRSV

3 STORIES OF HOPE What if you found yourself leading a church in which…? What would you do?

4 KEY QUESTION Do you want a self-replicating disciple- making process where members are ministers and pastors have partners?

5 OUR HOPE The intent of LMI is to mobilize the entire people of God as disciple- making disciples in ministry and mission within each congregation in order to transform the world around them.

7 THE REAL MONA LISA?

8 NOT ALIKE AFTER ALL

9 WHAT IF OUR LONG-ESTABLISHED PICTURE OF THE CHURCH IS DISTORTED? Program-Driven Sunday morning events take center stage. Mission is one of the things the church does. Our job is to be doing things (ministries) for God. Our most-asked question is, “What would Jesus do?” We mainly point others to the church and membership. Spirit-Led Center stage is in the midst of lost humanity. Mission is at the heart of everything the church does. Our job is to get on board with what God is doing. Our most asked question is, “What is Jesus doing?” We mainly point others to the Lord Jesus and discipleship.
