Eliminating Ministry Clutter: Practicing the Pruning Principle
Leader: Michael Kurtz

In our consumerism culture it is easy for the church to offer more and more ministries and programs, seeking to be all things to all people. The result is often a congregation, or ministry, going a mile wide and an inch deep. For faithful and fruitful ministry to happen, we must continually practice the pruning principle. Instead of piling on programs, we are called to prune and streamline ministries as guided by our respective God-given vision. In this difficult, yet liberating, pruning work we experience the elimination of ministry clutter.

For nearly 40 years our presenter, Michael Kurtz, has pastored six congregations ranging in size of less than 300 to more than 1,700 members. In addition to being a lead pastor, Rev. Dr. Kurtz is also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, working part time in this capacity. Michael and his wife, Karen, also a United Methodist pastor live and serve in the Western N C Conference of The UMC. Much of the content for this webinar is taken from Michael's latest book, "Mentoring Pew Sitters Into Servant Leaders: Developing Servant Leader Volunteers Through Mentoring". The book is published by Plowpoint Press and is available for purchase at www.plowpoint.org
