Event description
A Master Class for Church Leaders to Help Members Experience God’s Mission in their Day-to-Day Lives

About this event

Is your congregation full of people who are already overwhelmed with work, family, and the stresses of life? People need ways to engage with Jesus in their day-to-day life. But too often, all they hear is "how to be more involved in your church."

In this master class, you'll explore what it means to be a 21st Century Christian, a person who follows Jesus' model and the calling of the Holy Spirit in everyday life, not just at church on Sundays. You will learn:

  • Roadblocks that make it difficult for Christians to explore their faith in the 21st century, and how they can be overcome
  • How to teach and preach in ways that encourage Christians to engage with God's mission throughout the week
  • How 21st Century Christians can form expressions of Church in the places where they are already doing life.

This Master Class is a two-hour learning experience perfect for pastors, church staff and church leaders who want their congregations to engage with God's mission all week long. Registrants can participate in a live, webinar-format call or watch the recording on-demand. All registrants receive a free copy of 21st Century Christian: Following Jesus Where Life Happens by Michael Beck and Michael Moynagh.

When registering for this MasterClass you get access to a "bonus" masterclass following the end of the RCA (details included below).

Not everyone is ready to come back to church—no matter how much they love your ministries. What would it take to bring those ministries outside the church building and into the spaces where life naturally happens? In this Master Class, you'll get tangible examples of common ministries that have been reimagined for new spaces, including:

  • Youth Ministries at a local school
  • Churches that gather in work places
  • Home as a mission base for the church

This Master Class features practitioners with tested ideas and processes. It is included for free with any track of the Resilient Church Academy.

DETAILS

  • Monday, January 31 from 1-3pm Eastern
  • Presenters: Marcus Corey, Mitch Marcello, Steven & Lucia Barr, Booker Riddick, and Gannon & Carey Sims

Mitch Marcello is the Director of the Acts Network, a collection of fresh expressions of faith connected with the local church. He works with leaders to explore faith expressions, create meaningful communities and grow personal understanding about what it means to be a disciple in a rapidly changing culture. After spending five years working with the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) doing college ministry and community outreach, Mitchell sees the importance of contextualizing ministry, and knows connecting pioneering ministries with the traditional church is vital to the Gospel being spread. It is not about being the newest form of ministry, but about doing what is needed to make the Gospel “news” again. Mitchell works at First United Methodist Church in Williamsport, PA, has helped start eleven faith communities and is in the process of launching fresh expressions of worship throughout Williamsport. Mitchell holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts and an Artist Diploma from Carnegie Mellon University.

Steven and Lucia Barr have led Cast Member Church at Walt Disney World for ten years. A ministry that began with a focus on the 74,000 employees (called “Cast Members”) has now expanded to six continents and is recognized by many, including Christianity Today as one of the most innovative churches in the world today. Lucia works as a coordinator in EPCOT (one of the four theme parks in Walt Disney World) and Steven leads the Cast Member Church: Global “Community-D” network in person and on-line. Since it’s inception, Cast Member Church has been able to expand and multiply around the world without the need of a large staff or budget. Steven is the author of “A Guide To A Life Beyond Imagination” which details the unique disciplemaking tool used in Cast Member Church, and is currently working on a new book entitled, “Kingdom Influence: Three Proven Keys to Revealing Jesus in a Skeptical and Suspicious World.” Together, Steven and Lucia are a team that inspires and challenges ordinary followers of Jesus to pursue the extraordinary adventures to which God has called them.
