Spring 2020 Workshops

Evangelistic Leadership in a Post-Christian Context

Saturday, March 14 | 10:00AM-12:30PM

Description: One of the most confusing and scariest words to say and hear in any church is “evangelize”. We know it is something as followers of Jesus we are commanded to do however most models of evangelism past down to us are often irrelevant, formulaic, and confusing, especially in New England. This event explores what it looks like to adopt an evangelistic way of life in a Post-Christian context like New England.

** This event is free for all attendees.

Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church: 188 Elliott St. Danvers, MA 01923


Leading a Whole-Life Discipleship Movement

Saturday, April 18 | 10:00AM-12:30PM

Description: The task of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The ways in which this task has been accomplished in the past is being challenged, especially in a New England context. How can ordinary churches become communities of people who help one another live out their whole life – at work, home, church, in the neighborhood – as followers of Jesus in his mission to the world? This event looks at how to lead a whole-life discipleship movement, in the context of the local church, that equips disciples to live out their faith in the realities of their day-to-day world.

Developing a Culture of Missional Leadership

Saturday, May 9 | 10:00AM-12:30PM

Description: We live our lives in different spaces (our workplaces, our neighborhoods, etc.) that God cares about – places where He plans to do a re-creative work. How can ordinary people partner with God and “co-create” with Him on their daily frontline? This event looks at how to develop a culture of missional leadership that is lived out in the context of everyday life.
