How do I get started with Igniting Ministry?
Read Stepping into Igniting Ministry

To begin changing a church’s lifestyle to be more welcoming of newcomers, Igniting Ministry offers some important resources and training options. The most basic resource is the Igniting Ministry Planning Kit.

Other training resources include the group study, Beyond 30 Seconds: Developing a Welcoming Congregation , and the new Living Our Promise Trainer’s Toolbox. These resources include handbooks, training outlines and videos, and advertising CDs that will lay the foundation for your church’s involvement in welcoming and media ministry (see related links at top right for product descriptions and ordering options).

For welcoming ministries, many churches start with the Welcoming Certification Checklist. Churches use the worksheet as a guideline to measure present status and progress with their welcoming ministries. Whether they apply for the certification award or simply use the ideas to stimulate their thinking and planning, churches all over the United States have been both encouraged and challenged by this tool.

When launching a local advertising effort, many churches have turned to Igniting Ministry’s Matching Grants office for support and guidance. Matching grants offer churches an opportunity to double their money for advertising and get expert media buying advice in the process.

Igniting Ministry training helps churches make the most of these resources by educating leaders about their availability and uses.
