Point Person Resources



Amazing Point Persons: Thank you for serving in this very important role! 

As you move forward and mobilize your churches into LOVING KZOO, we want you to remember that this “movement” is not on your shoulders… it is on the very worthy and capable shoulders of JESUS! So although of course there is a lot of information necessary in order to get a bunch of churches to do something together, we want you to feel overwhelmed with how AWESOME Jesus is, rather than feeling overwhelmed with the task! And never hesitate to contact us if you need additional information or promo materials!


Monthly Checklist

Find your Point Person:

The “Point Person” is the main communication link between the Jesus Loves Kzoo movement and each local church. It is a vital role as we seek to mobilize the Body of Christ in our city!

Now is the time for leadership from your church to decide who will be your JLK Point Person (or Point Team) — and let us know! Email Julie at Jesusloveskzoo@gmail.com

 

All church Point Persons (veterans and those just coming on board) should talk with your pastor/leadership team about…
  • strategies for getting your church’s leadership on-board and informed (perhaps show videos etc)
  • mapping out a mobilization plan that works for your church
  • your youth ministry getting involved with IMPACT
  • how your church could contribute towards JLK’s funding needs (financially, through material donations, etc)
  • identifying volunteers to recommend for various JLK Planning Teams and for the JLK 365 (formally known as the Bridge Army).
