Transformation is the intentional spiritual journey that a congregation undertakes systemically to realize what God has called that congregation to be as church and to do in mission in today’s world. There is still time for Disciples to participate in four God’s Positioning Spirit (GPS) congregational transformation meetings in 2009. The GPS gatherings will take place in Oklahoma City, Okla.; Atlanta, Ga.; King of Prussia, Pa.; and St. Joseph, Mo., at various times from January to March.
Organizers of the meetings say a congregation’s transformational journey is spiritual because transformation is the work of God. It is systemic because it is about everything a congregation is and does, not just one aspect of a church’s program. It is connected denominationally and to the whole church. It is a strategic journey because it addresses change in an intentional process of action steps. Transformation is also a continuous process.
