The purpose of a Learning Community is to support and resource you as leaders and your church/organisation on the journey of missional discipleship as you go to the places God is calling you in your community.
Each gathering has a different theme and is created to allow you and your team to engage with the word, works, and way of Jesus, while discovering the core principles of missional discipleship. Each gathering provides specific teaching and practical tools, alongside opportunities for you and your team to connect, share experiences and learn from other passionate teams in your region, Unlike traditional conferences it also includes spaces to reflect, discuss, plan and decide how to implement in your context what has been learned.
Discipleship and mission go hand-in-hand, so as we disciple our leaders, equipping them to live missionally is essential if we want to become more than an inward looking club.
Missional Communities are our way of helping followers of Jesus to live together on mission every day, and to ultimate mobilise the church to live out her calling.
During this gathering, we’ll explore how we can use Missional Communities to help people learn the dynamics of living as a whanau on mission, and how we can move from the humble beginnings of discipling a small group of people, into the much bigger vision of releasing a movement of mission in New Zealand.
