Ministry Development: Enabling the Ministry of the Baptized
The Rev. Michelle Meech
February 6 – May 18, 2012
Registration Deadline: February 2, 2012
Ministry of the Baptized, Total Ministry, Mutual Ministry, Area Ministry. No matter what you call it, the question is the same: “Given that we are called to ministry at this time and in this place with these resources, what are we to DO?” This course will teach a model of ministry discernment for community, which includes the leadership required to enable this discernment. We will explore our call to ministry – both as individuals and as the collective, investigate the inspiration for that call, and seek articulation of ministry in real and tangible ways outside the walls of the church building. We will also discuss models of leadership, change dynamics and ministry development. A mix of reading, online discussion, on-the-ground exercises and writing will be used during the course.
