Skilled in Scripture Familiar with the books, genres and structure of the Biblical texts; able to read and hear scripture personally and in shared learning; able to refer to and recall Scripture that guides our lives.
Practiced in Prayer Able to practice private devotional prayer, contemplative prayer, and able to pray with and for others, especially for healing.
Steeped in Story Able to share our own story and God’s story as testimony and in the work of the gospel proclamation and disciple-making. Invested in a shared story with others as part of the church and as part of a smaller circle of Jesus followers.
