New Member Integration
“When souls are converted, set them to work at once. And as they labor according to their ability, they will grow stronger. It is by meeting opposing influences that we become confirmed in the faith. As the light shines into their hearts, let them diffuse its rays. Teach the newly converted that they are to enter into fellowship with Christ, to be His witnesses, and to make Him known unto the world.”
This final phase trains and equips NEW BELIEVERS with requisite knowledge and tools to fully-integrate them into the work of the church. The retention rate for new converts is highest when opportunities are created for them to become actively involved – working collaboratively with other church members to benefit others, especially those in their community. By imparting to others, they are strengthened themselves (Isaiah 58:7,8 and 2 Timothy 2:2). This final cycle is designed to teach new members how to grow in Christ and help them to find their place within the body by introducing them to church history, a spiritual gifts assessment, and Community Health Advocate Training (CHAT).
