From John Mehn, CWW Missionary in Japan
John shared an encouraging word with Pinnacle Ministries from the site of the Rengo (Japan) Annual Meeting. The meeting was preceded by other events, including the Church Planter’s Summit and the New Pastor’s School. The School is a 3-year learning experience for new Pastors in the Rengo. At the end of one of the School sessions, John encountered some of the pastors who participated and reported: “In the new pastors’ school they used the conflict styles and did the skit on conflict of worship. I talked to several who attended and this was extremely helpful and practical for them.”
The Conflict teaching comes from Retreat 2 of The Church Retool Kit Pathway which focuses on Renewing Leadership in the local church by building healthy, biblical relationships. The Retool Kit Pathway is in the final stages of translation and contextualization by Rengo leaders together with Pinnacle leadership Gary Harrison and Ray Swatkowski.
