Event Details

Pioneers are mission entrepreneurs who have the stirrings to go beyond existing church communities to engage in life and ministry with people, fostering fresh expressions of church that connect with those uncomfortable or unfamiliar with the inherited church.
Partial Scholarships may be available to those in need. Email jane.linton@freshexpressionsus.org to inquire.
Fresh Expressions Learning Communities are a six-month, part-time, learning community designed to:

Assist teams who want to launch fresh expressions of church
Help pastors and lay-leaders create Fresh Expressions strategies for their communities and neighborhoods
Surround pioneers with a network of fellow sojourners and practitioners of missional ministry

Over the course of approximately six months, Pioneer cohorts meet for two weekend retreats, monthly connection and support through coaching. Teams and individuals discern and implement intentional steps toward developing fresh expressions of church appropriate to their unique contexts. Each participant is welcomed into an on-going peer learning network upon completion of the learning community.
Using the Mission-Shaped Ministry curriculum first developed in the UK as a framework, Learning Communities dig into the theological foundations of Fresh Expressions, the practices that lead to contextually appropriate ministry, attentiveness to authentic discipleship, tools for developing teams and leaders, and the steps to forming meaningful expressions of church within a particular mission context.
Price includes participation in both retreats (Jan. 11-12 and May 31-June 1), food, training materials and a book, 6 months of coaching circles in between the retreats, webinars, and more!
