re:source begins a second course in january 2006. i am on the core group for the course and am excited about it. the first time we ran the course it went really well. this time it will be even better as we have learned from the first year and hopefully improved on it.
if you are involved in leading an emerging church/fresh expression of church/church plant or are thinking about starting one this could be a great course to sign up for. it is aimed at people who are doing it i.e. practitioners.
it consists of 5 weekends through the year, each in a different
location, on the themes of mission, culture, leadership, church and
transformation. like all these kinds of courses as well as some
teaching, discussion, reflection, coaching and so on, one of the huge
benefits is meeting a bunch of other people on similar journeys round
the country to learn from each other. mentoring and assignments are
also part of the course.
the stated aims/aspirations of the course are that by the end of it you will:
• be equipped to create church in emerging culture
• develop mission strategies for your specific context
• explore and apply skills in leadership and discipleship
• develop your capacity for spiritual and personal growth
Bob & Mary Hopkins and Roger Ellis, among others, are also involved in this excellent programme. Full details are in the brochure - Download it in pdf format here.
