Wycliffe College Offering Course on Fresh Expressions
Wednesday August 31st, 2011
There is clear evidence these days that one of the most effective forms of evangelism in contemporary North America is church planting. More people come to faith in Christ through new churches than through long-established churches.
So how do you begin a new Christian community where none exists at present and where there is little or no “Christian memory” to help it get jump-started in the community? After all, it is no longer the case that “If you build it, they will come.”
This September, Wycliffe College in Toronto is for the second time offering the course,Mission Shaped Ministry.
MSM is primarily for teams (ideally, lay and ordained together) who are thinking and praying about the possibility of pioneering a fresh expression of church, as well as for those who are already involved in one. Over the eight months, the course will enable you to take practical steps forward towards the realization and growth of that vision.
The course is also suitable for senior church leaders (equippers and encouragers—permission givers) who can check it out, and then encourage others to take the course and to become involved in pioneering ministries.
