"WHERE ARE YOU UP TO WITH YOUR NEW ORGANISATION?"
Well before we began with Youth Ministries Australia, I developed a way to engage with the Bible story using the brand AccessTheStory. We have made the decision to utilise this name for our new organisation.
OUR VISION: to see a story-formed generation released into communities of faith for the mission of God.
OUR MISSION: to engage people in story-formed discipleship so their understanding and proclamation of the gospel is changed.
WHAT WE DO: Bible engagement and discipleship through the lense of STORY.
WHAT WE VALUE:
- The scope of story - engaging with the whole story of God provides a greater context for following Jesus.
- The power of story - storying through the biblical text provides a greater opportunity for personal and community transformation.
- The pathway of story - a genuine space for discovery provides a greater sense of ownership of learning.
As of the 19th December we became an incorporated body after submitting our constitution to the Office of Consumer and Business Affairs on the 18th of December.
On Saturday the 11th January we held our first board meeting. The members of the board are Grant Burgess (WA), Steve Byard (SA), Ellen Beasy (SA), and Tim Beeck (WA).
We are currently in the midst of seeking to finish well with CCCA, while we establish the logistics for AccessTheStory - our prayer is that transition might be as smooth as possible.
We are aiming to launch AccessTheStory formally on the last weekend of March in 2014. Our hope is to confirm some other members of the team by that time as well. We would love it if you could mark 7.30pm, Saturday the 29th of March in your diary!
