Resident Fellow at BH Carroll, Stan Wood from Sower’s Field, will teach an online course on church planter skill and gift development for disciple making.
This one-week intensive course frames church planting as an integral part of the Triune God’s extension of Christ’s reign and foretaste of Christ’s kingdom. It introduces a biblical and theological basis for the calling and sending of leaders to plant mission-shaped churches. It assists students in visioning missional church planting strategy that is contextualized in the North American mission field. This course includes a process of church planter skill and gift development. Students will create a “skill and gift development plan” based on 21st century disciple making and reflective learning from profiles of effective and faithful church planter leadership skills, traits and spiritual gifts.
- First, this course provides a capstone for continued Church Planting Cohort community learning with one another and in-depth interaction with the cohort professor.
- Second, the cohort attended the “largest gathering of church planters on the planet” at Exponential (East Coast) in 2014 where the cohort networked with church planters from across the US, interact with leaders in the church planting movement who presented workshops and plenaries, and meet Christian publishers specializing in church planting publications. The Cohort had a private showing of artifacts from ancient biblical history at the Orlando Scriptorium.
- Third, the directed study facilitated theological reflection and response from conference plenaries and workshops.
