Finding God's work beyond the red doors: JesusHacked podcast 23
An intentional self-study as a beloved pastor of thirty-plus years was retiring aligned with a congregational development course to challenge a downtown congregation. Grace Church in Jefferson City discerned they wanted to be not only more visible in their community, but more active and engaged. This led them out the front doors, to look up and to look around at the connections to be made. "We didn't set out to start a new social service agency. We were just trying to figure out, how can we as a faith community bring our resources, energy, talents and skills to the table to meet some of the needs we have in this community?"
