I specifically taught about "Discovering the 5 Purposes of the Church." This includes worship, evangelism, community, discipleship, and ministry. We looked at the Great Commandment and the Great Commission to derive these characteristics that we as Christ followers and the church should possess. As I taught and asked questions it seemed that the Church leaders were eager to learn and understand God's Word better. I compared the church to a football (soccer) player. This seemed to resonate with the leaders. A good football player must possess many characteristics. He has areas of strength and weakness. In order to become a better player he must recognize his weakness and work to improve those areas. I believe it is similar with the church. A church that wants to grow and fulfill their purpose must know their strengths and weaknesses. Then the church must seek to improve in their areas of weakness.
Teaching was a great experience!
