Join a cohort of missional ecumenists to serve the Church in New England.
God has done some amazing things in building greater trust and partnership amongst the Christian community over the past few years. We are excited to see how God wants to further build on that foundation. Imagine the impact on our region of a cadre of 15-25 trained, motivated, and networked leaders who would be at the vanguard of Christian unity work for the next 5-10 years!
John Armstrong from the ACT 3 Network will lead 4 all-day sessions (all on Mondays) spaced throughout the 2018 calendar year –March 19, May 7, September 24 and December 7. Three of the sessions would be in downtown Boston; one would be at Assumption College in Worcester. These sessions are essentially a compilation of the graduate course in Christian unity that John Armstrong taught for a number of years at Wheaton College. But there is also a strong relational component to the cohort, building friendships across historic divisions in the Church and establishing potential missional partnerships for the future.
Perhaps you are one of the people God is nudging to join us for this cohort. Or perhaps you can think of a key leader in your network of relationships that you believe should be considering joining us.
Here is how you can determine if you (or someone you know) would like to participate in this unique group:
- Watch this short video: https://vimeo.com/197713067.
- Go to the ACT3 homepage and read the information on the Cohort: http://act3network.com/resources/cohort-groups/
- Take some time to pray and reflect. Note any questions that you might have. Also, pass along this information to anyone you think could be a candidate for the cohort
- Note: The “fees” can be worked out in ways that allow folks to find scholarship funds if they are needed. Money will not keep someone out of this cohort if their heart’s desire is to be included in such a group.
The deadline to apply is December 20th.
