The Center for Leadership Excellence, in partnership with Lay Servant Ministries, will be offering an advanced course, Leading Missional Small Groups with Lisa Bachman. This course teaches the Wesleyan way to form missional communities and congregations. It is based on the conviction that just as holiness of heart leads to holiness of life, it is communities of holy love that participate in God’s mission in the world.

Learners will:

  • Recover the early days of the Methodist movement, what it means to be missional, and why that is our call;
  • Reframe their understanding of how the means of grace shape us to serve ‘missionally’;
  • Be able to define a missional community, how to organize for it, and what it means.
