The plan is part of a new Evangelism report called "Now is the Kairos Time." I haven't been able to find an online version of it yet. But the report in the United Church News says that "Kairos" has a four-fold strategy:
- nurturing a church culture that embraces and engages in new church development
- creating systems that recognize, recruit, assess, train and coach new church planters
- encouraging and empowering congregational multiplication [churches starting churches]
- preparing for increased outreach and welcome of affiliating [already-existing] congregations
My first reaction is a faster heartbeat. I'm looking forward to the next 5 years.
