A 4-week Immersion in How to Awaken Your Existing Church to the Missional Impulse of God w/ Josh Hayden and Christy Foldenauer
About this Immersion
Many churches in the United States have either stopped growing or are in decline. Yet, what is more concerning is the drift away from following Christ deeper into their local places on mission. Many of know the church, their own church, is in need of revitalization, but find themselves challenged in how to help their church make this transition without blowing it up. We want to guide you in the holy and hard work of Re-Missioning your established church. Do you want to re-calibrate your church around missional presence? Do you face old policies and outdated procedures that prevent this? Do you long to honor the past while innovating towards the future?
The Flow (Tues @ Noon on 11/17, 12/1, 12/8, 12/15):*
- Week 1: CREATIVE DESTRUCTION – Learning how to put the narrative of life, death, and resurrection into real-time practice in yourself and your congregation.
- Week 2: TRADITIONED INNOVATION – Holding the past and future in creative tension and learning to live more fulling in the present activity of God.
- Week 3: DISCIPLESHIP PATHWAY – Moving beyond small groups or Bible studies to creating discipleship pathways that deconstruct and reconstruct for movement.
- Week 4: REMISSIONING LEADERSHIP – Discovery a practice of leadership that models a cross-formed posture for the sake of opening up space for the flourishing of their community.
*RECORDINGS: With your ticket, you will receive the recordings of each session in case you are unable to attend.
