Leading in Contextual Mission, City to City, MA Intensive
Leading in Contextual Mission
with Dr Cameron Munro
Senior Pastor, Trinity Hills Church
4 x 1 Days: 26 July, 16 August, 13 September, 25 October 2017
Purpose: to equip participants with the skills to contextualise ministry forms and approaches in such a way that Christ comes alive in that culture, through the gifts of all members.
The unit is comprised of four modules:
Module 1. Gospel Contextualisation
To lead in contextual mission, a leader needs to have a Biblically formed view of culture and be eager to engage - and train others to engage - with the ideas and people who form culture. This module will equip leaders to employ ethnographic research skills and data to discern the values and key understandings of a given people and to determine the needs which the ministry of the church should address.
Module 2. Evangelistic Networking
This module equips learners to develop the skill of consistently and winsomely presenting Christ to others in a host of new situations, so that communicating Christ becomes an integral part of the culture of ministry. Emphasis is placed on developing "evangelistic pathways" and networks of relationships that spring a culture of hospitality in the church, as well as how to think about evangelistic events, process evangelism and the training of others in the church for evangelism, so that a missional culture is developed.
Module 3. Missional Ecclesiology
This module enables participants to understand the unique characteristics of ministry in a global city, and to develop a balanced missional culture in ministry, so that the good news of Jesus is expressed in every element of church life and reaches out in holistic ministry. Students will develop a theologically driven vision for the church and city, and a strategic philosophy of ministry for the church with outward-faced and balanced ministries.
Module 4: Mobilising Others in Mission
The effective church leader knows they cannot grow a church by themselves. Instead, they become leaders and pastors of gifted Christians who do the work of ministry. This module equips learners to design and implement an effective leadership training program that is gospel-based, relational and transformational, and which provides the church with the leaders it needs to fulfil its mission.
Assessment will be four x 2000 word essays focussing on each of the four modules.
Each essay is to be integrative with the participant's ministry context.
