Learning From London

June 2018

This is a travel course. A multi-faceted approach to mission and evangelism in the Diocese of London, Church of England, has led to 50% growth in weekly attendance since 1990. This has come about through a combination of dynamic local parish programs, strategic planning for planting and renewing churches, and an inspiring vision set forth by the diocese, situated in one of the most diverse, multi-faith and secularized urban centers in the world. How? And what may be learned for our own context? Students will learn best practices from seasoned practitioners and explore how to apply them at home.

Dates:  Begins online, in London June 2-8, 2018
Instructor:  The Rev. Dr. Jason Fout
Course number: CC450/650
