As the summer heats up, the ministry of Bridgebuilders is picking up speed.  Dr. Steve Dunn introduced our newest training program for Bridgebuilder churches, “Building an Elder Team”on June 20-21, 2014 in Durham NC.  Bishop Victor Glover brought elders and potential elders for the three congregations of the Last Days World Outreach for a seven hour training experience. (These congregations are part of the Eastern Regional Conference of the Churches of God and are located in Hillsborough, Raleigh and Warsaw NC).

“Building an Elder Team” is based on developing a discipleship culture and training persons to share with the pastor the responsibility of being shepherds if the flock.

Two more Bridgebuilders Seminars have been scheduled in the Allegheny Regional Conference of the Churches of God. July 26 the first one will be held at the Barkeyville Church of God in Pittsburgh,  (The church currently has no pastor, but has Winebrenner Seminary student Heidi Mikulin is coordinating this event.

September 5-6, 2014, Pastor Lee Kline and the Center Bethel Church of God in Alverton PA will host Bridgebuilders.

A new tool begins a 40 week pilot at Barkeyville following their event.  Bridgebuilders is developing Real Disciples, an extended study that uses a variety of tools including an Individualized Disciple Education Plan to help build a small missional culture within a traditional, to model the changes needed to be more effective as Christ’s disciples today.

Publication of The Bridgebuilders Principle has been slowed by the writing of some new sections and the editorial work needed.  We are still aiming to go to press the end of summer with an October release date.
