The board of the Center for Creative Ministry is meeting this weekend in Hilton Head, South Carolina, hosted by board member Judi Hewes who lives here with her physician husband. It is the first time we've had a face-to-face meeting in three years or longer. Next year makes the 20th anniversary of this research and resource organization that provides seeks to help congregations, church administrators and faith-based ministries deal with the emergence of new generations and the rapidly changing contemporary context in which God asks us to be faithful to His mission in the world. Paul Richardson is the executive director and I serve as chair of the board.
Do you have input for our discussion and prayer time together? What should the Center be focusing on in terms of research and innovation? What kinds of services and resource materials should it be offering? What are the big issues that you see for the followers of Jesus who are trying to be faithful witnesses in the context of our secular world today?
