What if we’re all called, equipped and empowered to bear witness in our everyday lives –and the great commission and great commandment are linked? What if the place to begin is right next door? Explore the theology and practice of discovering and joining God’s mission by being good neighbours.
This seminar looks at the importance of structuring our churches around the planting of missional communities in local neighbourhoods. The church is formed around mission, shaped by practices and empowered by the Spirit as it is sent into local mission fields.
Come and gain a fresh perspective on the Canadian Church by turning to current empirical data and analysis and stirring timely theological and practical considerations regarding religious and cultural realities inside and outside of Canadian congregations. This one-day event, led by Joel Thiessen, Ph.D., of Ambrose University, is ideal for church and denominational leaders as well as church members.
