I Come to the Garden Alone? Church Planting in Post-Christendom

Code: PT5/733 (VST)

Dates: July 13, 2020 - July 17, 2020

Time: 2:00 pm for 3 Hours

In the formerly mainline Protestant churches there is little maintenance ministry left.  Congregational ministry today requires either revitalization or church planting.   This course helps students who wish to focus upon the planting of new witnessing communities of Christian faith.  It builds upon the biblical and theological exposition of the Missio Dei, and examines the purpose and role of the witnessing community in that mission. Assigned readings serve as resources for both the theological foundations and the envisioned practices of church planting. Particular attention is given to the integration of experience, theory and practice.
