How to get involved
Living Stones Network invites you into a new era of partnership as we together raise the standard of leadership in our churches. We invite you to be generous with what you have - your time, expertise and finances - so that we see a movement of healthy churches impacting our nation and fulfilling the great commission.
What do you give?
Your time - for this to work we need each other at the conferences, retreats and forums. Your diary needs to be adjusted to factor these events in. Some events are for teams to attend, others are designed for one or two people from each church.
Your expertise - we need you! The lessons you have learned, the successes you have enjoyed and the challenges you have navigated. They are valuable to others and so we need you to share of your very best with others in the network.
Your partnership - for any network to thrive there are some foundational beliefs and values that we must operate under. Any church in the network is committed to the vision and values of the ministry.
Your finances - there are real costs to making this happen and so we invite your church to consider budgeting between $100-$500 per month to support the network.
What do you get?
Network events - the national conference, webinars and training days will be advertised widely across the New Zealand. Participation in the retreats and forums will be limited to churches in the Living Stones Network.
Reduced rates - member churches will receive discounted rates for the national conference and any training days.
Access to online resources - partnership in the network will result in access to all online resources.
Community and coaching - we see this as the intangible benefit! There is huge value in being part of a community larger than your own church, where you receive encouragement adn assistance from others as we do ministry together.
