Mark Tidsworth has been training clergy, church staff, and laity in the Shift Learning Experience for a year and a half now. Soon the book “Shift: Three Big Moves of the Post-Modern Church” will be published. This webinar focuses on one of the big moves traditional, denominationally-based churches are making which lead to life-giving faith experience.
Let’s face it – most of our congregations really want people to come to the church campus. Being the hands and feet of Christ in the world is a nice thought, but we judge ourselves successful by how many people are in worship this Sunday. The attractional church model is the prevalent model for being and doing church. For better or worse, the Christian culture and Modern world-view upon which the attractional church model was built, is quickly disappearing. How are we to be and do church now? The missional church movement represents an old/new way for congregations. Joining God on mission in the world is the goal of missional churches. This approach is not simply doing missions or having a missions committee, it is a completely different way of being church. Shift describes this movement, along with examples of congregations engaging this Shift, followed by opportunities to explore application to one’s ministry context or congregation. Mark will describe the shift from attractional to missional, along with suggestions on how to begin this movement in your congregation.
This webinar includes 45 minutes of instruction with 15 minutes for Questions and Responses. Learn more about “making the shift” HERE.
