The NEW Vision Tour

“The Christian Church is no longer in the majority. The question is how we might become an effectively activated minority?”

(From ‘In One Spirit’, by Dave Mann, published May 2019)

In 2019 Tony Collis and Dave Mann will be traveling nationally (one person to each location), as a representatives of the Shining Lights Trust, to invite a strategic discussion with city/town pastors’ groups on some things we can only do together in our nation.

The Shining Lights Trust Vision Tour, 2019 

(1) A one-hour pastors’ group discussion on AREAS OF POSSIBLE COMMON FOCUS NATIONALLY amongst NZ churches

i. Intentionality in mobilising members as the first national strategy
ii. Hope Project – as an example of our great potential together to enable the Church to have a voice in the face of continuing secularisation
iii. The intentional national (re)enabling of youth to reach youth (Godtalk.nz)
iv. Encouragement for fresh vision in Christian children’s ministry nationally
v. The function and functionality of city pastors’ groups in this picture
 Confirmation of hosting is needed from city/town pastors’ group)

(2) A ‘One Million Children’ evening of encouragement with Tony Collis

Grow your church by growing your children’s ministry. An inspirational evening that will encourage and motivate, as part of an effort to inject fresh vision into children’s ministry nationally. Ideal for children’s workers and potential workers from throughout your region, and a must for church leaders.

Confirmation of a host church, who help promote this regionally, is needed)

NO QUEENSTOWN OR WANAKA MEETING THIS YEAR

The mandate for city pastors’ groups is surely to do things together that individual churches cannot accomplish alone, and the same limit would apply for any discussion on  what we might work on together as a collective of city/town pastors’ groups also!    

A comment from Dave Mann regarding the necessary limit on what our SLT team might bring to a city/town pastors’ group for discussion.
