Phil Maynard joined us on September 24, 2019, in Chapel Hill and on September 25, 2019, in Greenville, for a Day of Learning on Authentic Relationships.
About the Day:
Did you know the average United Methodist invites someone to church once every 38 years?
This Day of Learning was designed to help the local congregation understand and apply basic relational principles to connecting people with the love of Jesus Christ. Participants learned how to foster relational connections in their church; how to encourage their congregation to engage their neighbors; how to help people leverage their relational networks, and how to impact the community through leadership and service.
- What if your church was known for fostering deep relationships and caring for one another?
- What if participants in your congregation began to leverage their natural relational connections to express the love of Jesus?
- What if your congregation was encouraged to build relationships with their neighbors to be the presence of Christ in their lives?
- What if your congregation began to see involvement in the local community as an opportunity to influence and serve to make an impact on people’s lives?
