PLACE is our fantastic assimilations ministry at The Waters Church. We like to call it our "Waters 102". You will learn all about it at Waters 101. PLACE is an incredible service designed to help our church members discover their unique design. It is an amazing way to get connected with some very cool people in our church. And it helps you find the exact ministries in our church that are best suited for you to serve and help lead. The following text is taken from the "About Us" section of the PLACE website.
What is PLACE?
PLACE is an intentional process to connect church members into purpose-driven ministry including self discovery, individualized ministry coaching and tracking from workshop training to ministry placement. Through the PLACE process, people discover that God has created and gifted them with a unique capacity to serve others.
Why PLACE Works
PLACE is not just another church program. It is a process of self discovery and service for all Christians. The PLACE workshop is not just another seminar that sends you home excited with no real practical tools. PLACE workshop training equips you with the knowledge, tools and power you need to transform your church.
What makes PLACE different and effective is our step-by-step implementation process and resources. Through the PLACE process, participants discover that God created them with unique personality, spiritual gifts, abilities, passions and experiences. Discovering God's purpose and plan for their lives helps members find their PLACE of service within the body of Christ. PLACE is a Biblically based and highly effective way of doing church.
Why is PLACE Important?
Today more than any other time in history, people are bombarded with multiple choices as to how to give their time. They find themselves asking, "Where do I fit in?", "Why am I here?" and "What can I do to make a lasting difference in my life and the lives of others?"
God created each of us for a purpose. "For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10. Part of his purpose for us is to edify the church and to serve in its ministries. "...to prepare God's people for the works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up." Ephesians 4:12.
The PLACE process can help you discover how God has uniquely designed you, and it will help you realize His purpose for your life. You find your life as you give it away ... but first you have to know what you have to give.
The Waters Church offers PLACE workshop on Sunday mornings. Please email Adam Bortka for the next available workshop.
