Mission-centric Ministry:
An Emerging Paradigm 

with Dr. Gary Simmons
Saturday, March 18
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Transitioning from minister to mission-centric ministry is a “whole system” process. It is the doing or practice of your mission that leads to creating community and organizational coherence. In the mission-centric model of ministry, the entire community embodies the fulfilled state that the mission statement describes. People’s experience of the mission becomes the ministry’s identity in the mission-centric model, rather than the role of the minister being the glue that holds everything together.

This transformative seminar will address:

  • Why the current minister-centric model of ministry is unsustainable
  • Why traditional tithing and prosperity classes no longer sustain ministries
  • How mission-centric ministry is funded
  • Shifting from “problems to solve” to leveraging evolutionary drivers
  • The distinction between “translational” and “transformational” teachings and why this is critical to transitioning to mission- centric ministry
  • How to intentionally cultivate the culture of ownership
  • Shadow work and growing emotional and spiritual maturity
  • The essential elements of transitioning from minister- to mission- centric ministry practice

This workshop is offered at no charge to all active participants in the Spiritual Life Center community. The ministerial team encourages everyone in our community to attend, in order to better understand SLC's current evolution and how each of us can participate.

Dr. Gary Simmons' formulation of the Integral Model of Ministry (mission-centric ministry) has won the praise of Ken Wilber. He and his wife, Rev. Dr. Jane Simmons, are currently in beginning their third year of implementing the mission-centric ministry practice. Dr. Gary coaches ministry leaders in transition to mission-centric ministry.
