January 28th - December 31st, 2017
This Learning Community is geared toward church planters and leaders of existing congregations that are looking to shift their ministry toward a more missional way of life. This community will consist of two one-day intensives. The first intensive begins the nine-month journey and covers seven key paradigm shifts. It will be followed by five monthly coaching sessions that integrate additional resources centered on each of the paradigms introduced in the first intensive. With each coaching session, particular emphasis is placed on application to each specific context represented by community participants.
The second intensive will take place six months into the process. This intensive covers key practices that provide vehicles for kingdom impact, missional movement and multiplication. The second intensive is followed by three monthly coaching sessions that focus on application of each of the missional practices. The nine-month journey concludes with a videoconference to celebrate the impact made in each context and to discuss next steps for each participant.
Launch: Spiritual Disciplines
October 9th, 2017
In this section of Launch, we will be looking at the importance of practicing spirituals disciplines as leaders and encouraging those in our ministries to practice them as well.
This section will include an exploration of different spiritual practices as well as the encouragement to add some of them to your own personal devotions. There will be some introspection in this section of Launch, but also tangible practices that will also be encouraged!
Soul Care Retreat
November 17th - November 19th, 2017
Demands of ministry and pace of life are shrinking our souls and tempting us to serve out of wells that are drying up rather than overflowing. SoulCare and self-care become the early losers when we’re stretched thin and pushing our margins. Who God made us to BE too often takes second place to what He has called us to DO. How do we bring these two equally important concepts to a more overflowing, flourishing place of joy in our lives?
Come away with us for a weekend of discovery that will help you to recalibrate your soul! SoulCare will give you tools that you can take home with you to help you create a more sustainable and fruitful rhythm of life and ministry.
