Evaluating Ministry Through the Lens of Self-Giving Love (Phoenix)

Presenter: Jon Hori
September 4 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am MDT
Shiloh Community Church, 19021 N 32nd St
Phoenix, 85050 United States

We know success in pastoral ministry is measured by something different than seats (attendance) and receipts (giving), but we don't always know how to measure the fruit of our local churches. How does the gospel shape our understanding and practice of truly successful ministry? What does it look like for the shape of the dying and rising of Jesus to be evident in evaluating our work? Come and find out!

About Jon Hori:
Jon Hori served for 19 years in pastoral ministry first as an associate pastor and then as a church planter. When Jon read Paul Miller’s "A Praying Life" in 2009 and then hosted his first seeJesus training, he knew he’d discovered an invaluable tool that impacted his life and ministry. In 2015, Jon joined seeJesus to serve as their Regional Director for the West Coast and East Asia. In this role, Jon trains pastors, missionaries, and churches throughout the United States as well as in East and South Asia. Jon and Sonia, his wife of 21 years, along with their four children currently live in Southern California.
