Discipleship and Witness Team

Best Practices

This best practices guide is intended to share inspiration, ideas, and excellence in our work of witness and holy living. This site seeks a framework of  Best Practice Structures and cutting-edge implementation strategies for use in your setting.


We begin with ideas related to welcome and hospitality at special seasons of the church: Rally Day, Christmas, and Lent and Easter. Become a Neighborhood Investigator, detecting new opportunities for ministry. Forward your ideas and best practices to us by emailing our Assistant to the Bishop for Stewardship and Faith Formation, Pastor Scott Schantzenbach.  We would love to hear of excellence in your work.
