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.

If you make disciples you always get the church, but if you focus on making the church, you rarely get disciples. Discipleship is the “operating system”, the foundation, the engine that makes everything else work and is therefore foundational to the future work you will do in multiplying leaders, mobilising mission, and cultivating a movement.
During this gathering, we focus on learning from Jesus’ process and methodology for making disciples.
The Community of Practice helps team’s who have been through a Learning Community together to stay accountable and open to God’s voice as they continue on the discipleship and mission journey.
Just like Learning Communities, teams gather together every six months for input, accountability, strategic planning, and coaching over a two year period. Community of Practice gatherings move from a heavy teaching component to focusing far more on tactics and coaching for how missional discipleship is unfolding in your context.
