DO YOU FEEL LIKE GOD IS CALLING YOU TO LEAD?
AIM (Adventures In Ministry) is a great way to explore your calling to Christian ministry!
If you feel like you’re called to ministry, you may feel both excited, uncertain and apprehensive. There is a great deal of responsibility associated with ministry work. Adventures In Ministry is a program designed to help you feel sure and fulfilled by your decision to serve God as a leader in Christ’s Church. The responsibility of leading others to Christ requires an understanding of your gifts and talents, and an emotional passion for the work involved.
1.) INVITE A GUIDE ALONG FOR THE ADVENTURE
SEEK AND ASK A TRUSTED MENTOR TO BE YOUR GUIDE
AIM is designed for a partnership of Guide and Explorer to work through a process of defining a young leader’s spiritual gifts and calling.
2.) FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE
OVER A 10 WEEK PERIOD, YOU AND YOUR GUIDE WILL HAVE 5 IMPORTANT CONVERSATIONS
Every two weeks, you and your guide will meet for a cup of coffee either in person or remotely, and talk about your spiritual gifts and calling. AIM provides an online format created by Rev. Ashlee Alley with 5 topics of conversation for you and your guide. These conversations are an exploration of who you will become as a leader in Christ’s church. The online curriculum is easy to navigate. By the end of it, you should have a clear understanding of your gifts, and your calling.
4.) SELF STUDY, REFLECTION & EVALUATION
OVER THE 10 WEEK PERIOD, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO JOURNAL AND EVALUATE YOUR SPIRITUAL DIRECTION
During the weeks that you are not meeting with your guide for discussion, you will follow an online evaluation to answer questions and share your experience with the AIM leadership team. We encourage our explorers to write about their exploration in a journal provided by the AIM team.
5.) REGROUP WITH THE AIM TEAM
ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR 5 CUPS OF COFFEE CURRICULUM, WE’LL BE IN TOUCH!
We look forward to getting feedback from you and your guide about the 5 Cups of Coffee experience. We want to talk to you about your future, and recognize your accomplishment by completing the program.
