Event description

Description

This two year Learning Community is a joint partnershhip between the Cascade Network Australasia (3DM Australasia) and the Baptist Emerging Leaders Network, and is sponsored by the Baptist Union of Victoria. Learning Communities are our primary tool to help Christian leaders put discipleship and mission at the centre of everything they do.

___________________________________________________

Is a 2 year Learning Community just a bunch of conferences?

Put simply, no.

While there is nothing wrong with conferences, the famous speaker with the great story on the main stage isn't going to come down and walk with you week by week, month by month, as you go to the places God is calling your community. Often, the outcome is that people go away with many pages of notes and good ideas without having had the chance to reflect, discuss, plan and decide how to implement what has been learned.

A Learning Community, on the other hand, is a series of 3-day intensives over 2 years with a team of 3-7 people from your church that incorporates main stage teaching and input with tactical training, expert coaching, and a chance to experience Missional Communities and Huddles. This all concludes with the creation of a six month plan that your team creates for your local ministry context. We recognise that every church leader and city is different and your plan needs to reflect those nuances.

These intensives happen every six months, with four gatherings over a two year period. In addition, there is regular coaching on a Huddle conference-call for the Senior Leader.

This might sound like a significant investment over a two year period. It is. if it were possible to impart the skills, tool and vehicles necessary to achieve everything God is calling you to with a smaller investment of time, we'd do that. But after working with nearly a thousand churches in the United States, Europe, Australia and beyond, we know there is no short-circuiting the process.

Beyond a Learning Community

_____________________________________________________________________________

The relationshhip we establish with participants does not end once the 2 year cycle finishes. We continue to support and equip these churches through Communities of Practice; ongoing coaching and leaders' gatherings. We also invite those who have been through the process to share their experience of implementing and innovating the principles in their contexts with new LC participants. Again, this is not about simply gaining more information, but about joining a movement where you can reflect, discuss, plan, be accountable and learn from one and other.
