View outline (PDF)  

Rooted in the instructor’s experience as a church planter, students will explore a theology of creation and develop skills applicable to any situation in which a new thing is coming into being: from a new ministry for an established congregation to a not-for-profit start-up; together, we will explore a six-part process of creation: void, hunger, vision, reality, identity, and growth.

Class times: July 8-12th, 2019:  9am – 12pm
