3. Assess the readiness of church and leadership to engage in missional ministry in the community.
4. Understand the needs of a potential community ministry partner and begin thinking about a strategy to engage with them

Session One: “Starting Where You Are: Becoming More Missional”

What paradigms must change for your church to engage in missional ministry in the community? What are the challenges involved in changing these paradigms? How might you motivate leaders to change? What does your church “bring to the table” in regard to gifts, resources, etc.?

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Ircel Harrison

ircel-harrisonIrcel is a lifelong learner who seeks to assist others in that same journey. He finds joy in walking alongside others as they discover their potential and pursue their personal missions. Individuals, congregations, and not-for-profit organizations find Ircel to be an able companion as they move toward mission advancement in their particular contexts. We have lost count of the ministers over time who claim, “Ircel mentored me.” Ircel provides coaching, consulting, and training as a Pinnacle Associate, while also serving as our Coaching Coordinator. Ircel resides in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
