Regional Committee: Opening Address
• Where does the One AFM Game Plan come
from?
• Take a look at the AFM’s strategic history:
 2000: NLF produced the AFM Master Plan. Was in
place for a few years but not driven strongly
enough.
 2012: NLF accepted a 2nd plan called the Vision
20/20 plan. The focus of this plan is on the AFM’s
apostolic or missional calling [The Great
Commission as in Matthew]
Background
• The AFM’s strategic history (cont):
 2013: Now there were 2 documents attempting
to provide direction for the church. There was an
uncertainty as to which document to promote.
 2013: National Office Bearers consolidated the
“AFM Master Plan” and the “Vision 20/20 Plan” to
form one document providing the strategic
direction for the church → The One AFM Game
Plan.
Background
• The need for UNITY now became apparent:
– One church following one plan!
Challenges
• Lack of mutual understanding when it comes
to the meaning of our key focus areas:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Empowerment
Ecumenical
Socio-Economic Relevance
Governance
Discipleship
• The AFM Strategy is a theoretical document.
What is needed is practical definitions &
actions that will establish a missional “way of
doing things”, i.e. missional culture.
Challenges
• To achieve UNITY, and address the challenges
- a process is needed that will help us to move
from:
 Theory to practice.
 Ideas to activities.
 Words to actions.
 Definitions to culture.
 Insights to behaviour.
Solution
• The One AFM Game Plan!
• What will the One AFM Game Plan do for the
church?
 Strengthen commitment & passion.
 Create mutual understanding.
 Produce practical definitions .
 Define roles for people on all levels of the AFM.
 Develop communication capacity.
 Lead to the implementation of the strategy.
 Empower church leaders to measure and set
objectives.
Solution
• One AFM Game Plan – what does it entail?
 We think of all AFM Pastors & Colleagues as a TEAM.
The AFM TEAM.
 The game? MISSIONAL CHURCH.
[Biblical foundation for a sports metaphor]
 The stake? Fulfilling the Great Commission.
 The Regional Committee members become COACHES
and MENTORS for their local pastors & assemblies.
 And in turn local pastors become Great Commission
COACHES & MENTORS for their own assemblies.
Solution
NOB (2013)
NLF (2013)
Regional Committees (2014)
AFM Pastors & Governing Bodies (2015)
Assembly Leadership (2015)
AFM Members (2016)
Solution
• One AFM Game Plan on NLF Level:
– NLF Launch on 19 November 2013 @ Birchwood Hotel &
Conference Centre.
– NLF members are participating in an E-Learning
Programme.
– NOB Members are acting as COACHES & MENTORS for the
NLF members.
Solution
• One AFM Game Plan on Regional Committee
Level:
– NOB Regional Empowerment Sessions.
– Here Regional Leaders acted as COACHES for their
Regional Committees.
Solution
• We, right your region/network name here, are ready
to take the One AFM Game Plan to our Pastors &
Governing Bodies.
• Take the first step in your One AFM Game Plan journey:
ACCEPT THE CALL!
 Move from being a FAN to being an active, dedicated &
committed PLAYER in the AFM TEAM.
 The Regional Committee invites YOU to ACCEPT THE CALL
to be a PLAYER in the AFM TEAM.
• Remember to order your One AFM Game Plan shirt!
Fellowship – Tea Break
• Join us!
Congratulations!
• Now you are an official PLAYER in TEAM AFM!
• Welcome to your training programme!
• The objectives of this 2-day training are:
– To train you as pastor and member of the governing
body in the use of the One AFM Game Plan tool.
– At the end of the 2-days, give each assembly a One
AFM Game Set of their own – encouraging our pastors
to repeat the process with their assembly leadership.
The One AFM Game
• The One AFM Game is based on the following
principles:
LEARN THE GAME
– Surely a winning team needs to know their game!
Good knowledge of the rules and terminology is a
must. In the One AFM Game we review the meaning
of our key focus areas.
TALK GAME PLAN
– No team can be successful without a Game Plan! In a
winning team every player knows what their role is. In
the One AFM Game we translate definitions to
actions; and in this process identify what our specific
role is.

Finish!
• Thank you for participating in the Regional
Empowerment Session.
• The way forward...
 Today all of you were part of a significant process
which aims to UNIFY the AFM → One church
following one plan.
 You received training in using a tool that will help
you to grow your missional assembly → without
disregarding your current assembly mission and
vision.
Finish!
• What happens next?
1. Each pastor receives a One AFM Game Box to
take back to their assemblies.
2. Each Game Box contains all the material that is
required to repeat the Game with assembly
leaders. A special RESOURCE CD is also included
– packed with information, electronic resources
and a step-by-step help guide for the pastor.
3. Now a pastor can present the One AFM Game
Plan Empowerment to his/her assembly leaders.
Finish!
• What happens next?
4. After presenting the One AFM Game Plan
Empowerment, the pastor will be required to
record the results on a Power Point Template
(which is on the RESOURCE CD) and send this
back to the committee.
5. The committee will provide feedback on each
Power Point Template that is received. From this
point forward, the committee will use this
feedback to provide coaching and mentorship to
local assemblies.
Finish!
• What happens next?
6. Resist the temptation to present the One AFM
Game Plan to the members of the church. 2016
marks the beginning of a special roll-out to our
members. However, before this can happen we
need to ensure that colleagues on all levels of
the AFM has been exposed to this process. Our
member roll-out will be the most important step
in the whole One AFM Game Plan process!
Together, moving in unity
to fulfil our God-given
missional calling!
