SALI Ministry Statement
|1.||God instructs Christians to tell others about Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20)|
|2.||God has granted each Christian gifts that are to be used for (i) the common good of the church (1 Corinthians 12:7) and (ii) to prepare others for works of service (Ephesians 4:12).|
|Using a Biblical Model:|
|3.||The Bible commends gender-based ministry (Titus 2:3-5). Specifically, older women are instructed to train younger women in godliness. It is important to note, however, that younger women are also able to teach (1 Timothy 4:11-12).|
|Seeking to encourage and nurture women in our church, and reach women in our community, with a desire to see their lives transformed by Christ.|
|1.||That first priority will always be faithful and clear gospel presentations (Romans 1:16).|
|2.||That SALI will encourage strong links to be built between women of all age groups (morning and evening congregations), with a desire to see older women teaching younger women (Titus 2:3-5).|
|3.||To support women, and encourage growth, through every stage of life (from teens to retirement and beyond).|
|4.||To see the women of St. Aidan's love, support and encourage each other beyond the formal structure of SALI. This means meeting both spiritual and material needs.|
|5.||That we encourage and assist women to build strong relationships in the local community and with their non-Christian friends, in order to share the Jesus with them.|
|6.||To provide good quality training for women, with the aim of seeing women well equipped for BPMinistry. This includes providing opportunities for women to explore and exercise their gifts.|
|1.||To run at least 3 evangelistic events a year.|
|2.||That at least one member from each congregation sit on the SALI committee.|
|3.||To encourage all women to belong to a St. Aidan's Bible study group.|
|4.||To ensure that advertisement for evangelistic events involves interacting with the community (when appropriate).|
|5.||That the women of St. Aidan's are actually involved in the planning and running of SALI events (see 'St. Aidan's Women's Ministry Model').|
|6.||To run at least one 'in-house' training session per year.|
|7.||To encourage women at St Aidan's and their friends, to attend EQUIP and Katoomba Women's Convention.|
|8.||To produce and present written information on SALI events and promote events as they draw near.|
