debt free in 3
Proverbs 29:18 says, “ Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
This verse teaches us that God expects us to be forward thinker and He expect us to have a plan that’s consistent with His will.
Personal Financial Growth & Freedom
We all dream of financial freedom. Here are St. Paul we believe that the dream can become a reality. We believe that poor and the borrower is slave to the lender.” This mean that we are bound and obligated to whoever we owe. We believe that our member can experience financial freedom from enslaving debt if there is a sincere commitment to the things that will be taught shared over the next three years. The studies will be offered in both a small group and traditional bible study setting.
Church Financial Growth & Freedom
We also believe that St. Paul can be “Debt per week or $100 per month for the next three years. This is in addition to your tithes and offerings. Luke 6:38 says. “Give and it will be given until you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Your faithfulness will not go unrewarded by God.
Multiply Me By 3
Each leader is responsible for training and teaching one person each year to do what they do. In three years we have 4 people who are ready to lead a ministry. Our leaders will multiply themselves by using he “Apprentice model” of I do. We do, and you do. Leaders will model how to complete the task or action first. Then they will partner with you in performing the task or action and finally, observe you as you complete the task or action on your own.
Each One Bring One
Each member is responsible for teaching and leading one person to Christ each year. Christ commissioned us to share our faith as we go through our daily lives. Christ declares that “If He be lifted up, He will draw all men to Him.” Christ encourages us to let our light shine in a ark and cruel world. The Bible says that all of Heaven rejoices when a child comes home. We want our members to commit to being a catalyst for a celebration in Heaven.
Grow Me in 3
Spiritual Development & Studying
Each member will be asked to commit to one small group bible study per year for the next 3 years. The small group studies are designed to disciple and develop while encouraging fellowship. Each member will be asked to participated in the spiritual disciples of corporate and personal prayer, corporate and personal fasting, corporate and personal bible study and mediation.
Each member will be asked to get active in a ministry volunteer to serve at one church or outreach event each year for the next 3 years. The goal is to get members moving and serving instead of just sitting and attending. Christ wants us to have the same mindset that He had. He wants us to focus on serving more than we focus on being served.
We are asking each member to commit to financially supporting one outreach effort per year for the next 3 years. Christ admonishes us to take care of the least of these and to respond to the needs of our community with love and support.
The Pastor and leaders of St. Paula are excited about 3 year ministry and growth plan - 3 for 3
3 for 3 is a progressive and aggressive plan to grow the church and the individual member in 3 keys areas.
Over the next 3 years we will focus on spiritual growth, discipleship and financial growth and freedom.
