Starting Microchurches Within a Church
August 16, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDTFree
More and more church leaders are wanting to start a “skunk works,” R&D department, and/or a parallel pathway to develop missional leaders who can lead micro-expressions of the church, either within a current congregation or as an extension of it. Many a church has attempted this missional transition, and most would say it has had mixed results. Many would also tell you that it was very difficult, often fraught with discouraging crosswinds, and many times the fruit was limited.
However, more and more fruitful experiments are emerging in our time from within the prevailing or predominant model. Join us for a panel discussion with some innovators in starting a microchurch movement within this model.
THIS MINISERIES: The Start-Up Process for Microchurch Movements
In recent days, post-COVID, there has been a sea change in the world of “church planting.” Five to ten years ago, virtually all planters and church planting organizations were focused almost exclusively on the legacy model of church planting, often known as “launch large.”
Now, a surging number of young leaders have different dreams and aspirations: “How do we launch a decentralized network of disciple-makers and microchurches in our city?”
Where do we begin? How does a microchurch movement start up? What are the potholes? Where might we find hidden breakthroughs? Is there ancient wisdom available for this very contemporary challenge in the post-Christian western context?
Join us in this series of webinars and articles as we explore some of the vital dynamics of the startup process for a microchurch movement.
