About the program (courtesy of Asbury Seminary):
The missional church movement, through a renewed focus on the mission of God as revealed by Jesus and empowered by the Spirit, is challenging Christians to rethink concepts and practices related to mission, discipleship, spirituality and leadership. A missional church fashions its practices on the belief that just as the Father has sent the Son and Spirit into the world to accomplish the purposes of the Father, so too has the church been sent into the world. . . .
Participants in this cohort will:
- Apply biblical, theological and historical depth to discerning the operative paradigms influencing U.S. congregations at macro (institutional) and micro (local congregation) levels.
- Understand the paradigm shifts generated by the missional church movement and apply them to missional forms of church, discipleship, spirituality, and leadership.
- Evaluate and employ the distinct teachings of the Forge America Mission Training Network to discover new forms of missional-incarnational life and ministry, especially gaining insights into leadership that sustains missional communities and activates missional movements.
- Generate a working theory for their ministry intervention by establishing a biblical, theological, missiological, and theoretical warrant for research endeavors.
- Conduct on-the-ground, action-reflection learning in partial collaboration with the Forge Mission Training Network and members of the cohort.
