This two-week course teaches the Wesleyan way to form missional communities and congregations. It is based on the conviction that just as holiness of heart leads to holiness of life, it is communities of holy love that participate in God’s mission in the world. We will learn the missional foundations set by John and Charles Wesley in the beginnings of the Holy Club, what it means to be missional, why we are called to be missional, how the means of grace shape us to serve missionally, what a missional community looks like, and how to organize one.
Contact hours are earned through reading and study questions with posting and interaction with fellow participants on the discussion board. Participants must obtain the book Transforming Community by Henry H. Knight, III and F. Douglas Powe, Jr., which is not included in the course fee.
