Hospitality in Missional Leadership

Hospitality is at the heart of missional leadership. It starts as we ourselves become the guest: a guest in this world, and a guest in God’s world. As a guest we learn how to be an open-hearted host. In this course you will learn to compare and integrate your understanding and experience of hospitality with a deeper exploration of the biblical perspectives on hospitality. You will use these insights to develop your own practices of hospitality and missional leadership.

This course will build on the ‘Reimagining mission and learning in community’ course. In this way you will be able to train a group on the theme of hospitality in missional leadership.

  • Narrative of Scripture related to hospitality

  • Images of place and context
