An Evangelist blessing is a sacred time and space to come closer to God. It is a special prayer of blessing that gives guidance, hope, assurance, and insights to help you on your spiritual journey.


The nature of God is to love and bless. God's blessing comes through many avenues, such as family, friends, nature, music, or the written word. God desires to further bless you with a personal and specific blessing at key moments in your life journey:
When you are at transition points (graduation, college, marriage, children, divorce, employment decisions, etc.)
When the big questions of "Who am I?" and "What is my purpose?" occupy your mind and heart
When you want to understand God's will for your life
When you sense that God is calling you to new pathways

In Community of Christ, the sacrament of evangelist blessing provides opportunity for this personal and specific ministry.

For some time, we have talked about visiting ministry throughout the Inland West Mission Center.  With that in mind we have contacted several people who are willing to provide ministry and have developed a schedule.  This is our first time working on a coordinated visiting ministry schedule. As we begin this process our goal is for each congregation to have someone in their congregation once a quarter.  Each quarter the schedule will be posted here.

Spiritual Formation

Featuring a variety of guests and panelists with roots in the Restoration tradition, including LDS and Community of Christ, Project Zion Podcast explores the unique spiritual and theological gifts the Restoration offers for today’s world.  Project Zion publishes full-length episodes every other Tuesday, with occasional “extra shots” of shorter, high impact content in between.

VISTING MINISTRY:

Community of Christ does not proselytize faithful, active Latter-day Saints.  Instead, we seek fellowship and dialogue with all members of the Restoration.

But, in the model of our Master, we do invite all who are heavy laden, disenchanted, frustrated, or lost to come and see what God can do for their lives in Community of Christ.  If you are a disaffected Latter-day Saint, we invite you to consider the Restoration anew. Before you leave the Restoration, or Christianity altogether, please consider our offer of sanctuary.  We invite you to experience the peace of God in Community of Christ.

Spiritual formation awakens disciples to the Divine Presence in the midst of everyday life. Through spiritual practices, worship, and retreats, we learn to listen for God’s Spirit and discern invitations to share God’s love. Visit www.cofchrist.org/spiritual-formation for more information.

Community of Christ's field-based LCM program piloted its first group of sessions in the fall of 2012.  Congregation leaders throughout the US have made the commitment to attend the seven weekend sessions over the course of three years and incorporate the practices into their congregations. Through the workshops and the monthly meetings this group is learning the importance of functioning as a team, sharing in missional practices, and discussing and discerning essential questions.  Contrary to everything we've heard before the key to leadership is to "slow down."  The goal is not to quickly check off as many things on our to-do list as possible, but to focus on loving God, loving one another, and loving our neighbors first.  This exciting new program is helping to develop a new understanding of what it means to be missional and relational with each other as well as extend invitation, hospitality and healing to those in our neighborhoods and beyond.
