Ministry | Minitatanga

There is a future Church I see.

On one hand it's that good Pentecostal faith; the gifts of the Spirit and the resurrection power of God. In the other hand it's contemplative prayer, its spiritual formation and transformation, the fruits of the Spirit and our devotion to Christ.

 

The future Church won't just 'do' prayer, but live prayer, the future church will foster things like union and awareness.

 

Pastors will no longer be bogged down with administration, instead they will be committed spiritual directors.

We won't have leaders who are exhausted over strenuous work loads. Both privately and publicly we will be deeply formed in the ways of Jesus. Our lives will be thinned out and slow, that there will be an effect in width, and depth!

I have wrestled with this question and perhaps this is a question all christians should ask themselves... Is the soul of an individual really our greatest concern or have we been distracted by busyness, numbers and the self-generation culture?

I think the way we are formed as Christians daily, is key. Where depth is important, chapels are cherished, contemplative prayer thrives, and the sacraments are alive. That is the heart of this ministry.

I am a Pray-er, Spiritual Director and Retreat Curator.

The vision is ultimately forward facing - that the world around us would be impacted by a Christ-like Church.

 

I support you, the Church of Aotearoa in prayer, formation and mission, wherever and however the Spirit wills it, everything submits to him at the end of the day.

The future church i see will be a flourishing and thriving people because they are one of both presence and power, devotion and dependence.

AROHANUI,
TRISH
