The Changemaker Initiative webinar May 22

What if lay persons could use their interests and passion to grow their faith and impact the community? How would this transform your church?

The Changemaker Initiative “catalyze[s] people to be compassion-driven changemakers like Jesus in their churches, workplaces, neighborhoods, families, and communities. Through this fresh approach to discipleship, people come alive as they pursue a project making social impact.”

The Changemaker Initiative

Sound interesting?

The Changemaker Initiative isn’t meant to add to the pastor’s to-do list. It isn’t another church ministry that the church leadership needs to take on, either. It’s actually a way for ANYONE at the church, new or long-time member, to make a change in their community, neighborhood, workplace, or church. In fact, it turned out to be a great way to engage new people in ministry while growing their spiritual formation.

During the 2023 National Developers & Planters Gathering in Denver, Colorado, Kim Jones, a Los Altos UMC in Silicon Valley lay member, former Pediatrician, and co-founder of The Changemaker Initiative, shared her experience becoming a Changemaker Fellow and then leading others through the process. When she was a pediatrician, she wanted to address anxiety among youth. She used the Changemaker Initiative process to bring a group of parents together to help each other help their kids. It was a thriving ministry at her church that was cultivated from her interests and concerns.
