Pastors and church leaders!
After being a pastor in the local church for twenty years, I know how important it is to have the right message at the right time for your church family. I believe that the message of Neighborliness is a timely word from God for our nation. It’s been a joy to see people all across the country using our resources to spark conversations that help us practically embody the presence of Jesus for our neighbors.
Neighborliness has been used in every imaginable setting across racial, economic, and cultural lines in our country. I have been so encouraged to see the way that God has used this to update our lexicon to talk about getting to know our neighbors across dividing lines.
If you’re looking for practical resources for 2021, we’ve got a ton of FREE resources
available for you at www.neighborliness.com/resources.
- Sermon manuscripts
- Series graphics
- Sermon bumper videos
- Instagram / Facebook promo materials
- Small group curriculum (embedded in the book and available for download on the website)
- Community prayer guide
We have just uploaded the frameworks that we use to take churches on a six-month journey toward building a Neighborliness Team around the lead pastor. The idea is to give the pastor support by having a team that addresses racial/economic justice within their church family.
Finally, we also just uploaded the framework we use for helping churches & business leaders that are ready to engage their communities through an initiative called Holistic Community Development. This is a more robust, long-term strategy for partnering the skills and talents of residents of historically high-poverty communities, faith leaders, community leaders, and business leaders to bring sustainable and lasting change to communities.
God is doing something beautiful through this work and we would love for you to join us as we see the spirit of neighborliness sweep the nation.
Here’s a preview of some of the resources available:
