Culture Impact Webinar August 17

We are fighting a spiritual battle, and the battlefield is in our homes, communities, state, and nation. Many Christians want to get involved, but often are not sure how.

The webinar will not be more than 40 min long.

This Thursday, Aug 17 at 6:00 MDT
Family Heritage Alliance, working with Family Research Council and Watchmen on the Wall Pastors’ Network of South Dakota, is about to launch a network of church Culture Impact Teams here in South Dakota!

A Culture Impact Team is made up of “concerned Christians, commissioned by their pastoral leadership, to help encourage their local church toward exerting a more effective Christian influence.”(CIT Manual) The Culture Impact Team is indigenous to your church.  Focusing on the local church allows us to be able to come along side you to be a source of information, equipping, alerting, and mobilizing you and your church as we engage our communities, state, and nation.

1. Inform.  The top priority is to inform the pastoral leadership on moral issues of the day.

2. Equip. As the pastoral responsibility is to equip the body of Christ to work, the CIT will come alongside to help provide prayer and resources to be involved regarding whom to pray for, write, call, visit, and what organizations or experts can help us equip the body to know how to handle the different issues that are shaping our culture.

3.  Alert. In Isaiah 62:6 God put watchmen on the walls in Jerusalem to sound the alarm when danger was near and action needed to be taken. The shepherds need to know when to sound the alarm for action. Discernment, accuracy, timeliness, and submission to church leadership by the CIT are paramount.

4. Mobilize. God has given various gifts in the body of Christ and the grace to use them accordingly.  The pastoral leadership team, through prayer and the Spirit’s leading, can choose the necessary course of action to mobilize the body.

Here is the order of events leading up to having CITs in place across the state.  This Thursday evening, August 17th at 6:00 pm MDT there will be a statewide webinar explaining the CIT, and then towards the end of September we will have John Mendez come out from Family Research Council for one evening and morning meeting walking us through and better equipping us in utilizing Culture Impact Teams across the state.   At the training you will be given great resources to help your CIT.  After the training FHA will be here to help you sustain the team and to be your resource on a state level, while Family Research Council will be a resource on a national level.

Rapid City Training Sept 19-20        Evening and all morning
Sioux Falls Training Sept 21-22        Evening and all morning

The evening session will be for Pastors.  The morning session will be for all those that would like to be involved in the CITs.

Our vision is to have a CIT in each church across the state.  Again, these CITs will be made up of members of their own church.  The CITs will coordinate with each other as well across the state to be “one” as Jesus prayed, “…that they may all be one, just as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”

Our continued prayer is that as we come together to stand for faith, family, and freedom, South Dakota will be a state where God is honored, religious freedom  flourishes, and life is cherished.
