Local Outreach Team Members (20) : Attend four hours of training and then partner with another team member as your schedules allow to contact our neighbors one time to determine what needs they perceive that St. John's can fulfill. The data collected will be maintained in a database to help structure further efforts within the community and ensure full coverage. This ministry follows the precepts from 50 Days Ablaze. Touching the 2000 closest households to our church within two years is a current congregational goal in line with the LCMS Ablaze initiative.
