Rev. Sue Nilson Kibbery, director of the Missional Church Consultation Initiative (MCCI), talked about the importance of this program at the Conference on Sunday, June 17. She said, MCCI provides tools and training and resources to help churches identify their own dreams and guide them to move forward to realize dreams of doing more mission and more evangelism.” An important first-step initiative of MCCI is breakthrough prayer.

The Cabinet is sponsoring this Breakthrough Prayer Initiative Training Event on June 30, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at Stevens Point: St. Paul UMC. Rev. Sue Nilsen Kibbey will be the featured speaker. Breakthrough prayer can be added into what already happens in the daily life of your congregation--and this workshop will provide equipping plus many stories, practical examples and ideas of how other United Methodist congregations across the country have done so with innovation and impact. Additionally, learn how you can utilize breakthrough prayer through key aspects of your weekly worship service, and develop your church's heart to reach its neighborhood with the message and love of Christ.

MCCI started in 2011 to provide churches and their pastors with an intensive consultation and clergy coaching model designed to intervene in local churches that are currently plateaued, are in decline, or are on the way “up” but not sure what should come next. MCCI is designed to jumpstart a new life cycle of ministry fruitfulness. The event is free, with lunch included. Each church must bring a team consisting of the pastor, plus at least five of your members (or as many as you like) in order to attend, and in order that implementation of the training is effective.
