AT 361: Becoming a Missional Church: The Theology and Practice of Joining God in the Neighborhood

The “mission field” was once across the globe, but now it’s around the corner. How will our churches respond? This four-session module equips leaders to guide ministries from maintenance mode toward embracing God’s mission and reimagining their own. Developed and led by The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers and the Missional Vitality Team in the Diocese of Long Island, this interactive course draws on practical leadership development tools grounded in Anglican theology and biblical study and covers the following topics:

Introduction – What Is a Missional Church and How Do We Get Started?

Evangelism – Being Good News in the Neighborhood

Radical Welcome – Embracing and Being Embraced by the Neighborhood

Asset-Based Relationships – Loving and Serving God Together

Conclusion – Leading Change Back Home
