Description
Summary:Intentionality is one basic work style among ministers today, and it can be fruitfully cultivated. Intentional ministry involves three levels: intentions such as planning, setting priorities, creating one's role and mobilizing resources; vocation as a sense of an underlying direction, movement and meaning in one's life; and the shared consciousness of the possibility of change, taking the form of collaborative problem-solving. The central issue is to define areas of initiative consistent with one's vocation and to enter into supportive relationships and shared effort which will broaden and strengthen the intentional base of one's ministry.
