Reimagining Mission: Learning-Centred Mission

Starting date

What happens if we stop and reflect on the question, “Whose mission is it anyway?” How does such reflection affect the way that we approach our mission calling and engage with the people around us?

In this 7-week online course, we discuss relevant questions that arise from Reimagining Mission. It applies a learning-centred approach to mission that seeks to nurture relationships and discern how God is ministering in the world and calling us to participate. Come step out in faith and reimagine with us.

"When thinking missiologically, a learning-centred perspective highlights the importance of a relational approach in mission practice. Information exchange is not the driving motivation of this type of missiology, the focus turns to nurturing relationships and creating safe spaces that leave room for God on mission to minister to all. A learning-centred approach holds that all are transformed in the relational space; all are learners." Matt Norman
