“Outreach” is a word that the church uses in a variety of ways to remind itself that the church exists for the benefit of those who are not members. This course begins with a discussion of God’s mission of transforming the world and our participation in that mission, connecting the church’s activities with the Good News of Christ Jesus. This is a praxis-oriented class, with a focus on specific tools for: assessing a parish’s life and work; preparing parishioners to engage in outreach efforts; developing mission and ministry plans; and engaging in evangelism, social outreach, and social/environmental justice work.
