Offered in Fall 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The course is a ministry-based practical orientation to the ministry of church planting and fresh expressions of church. The curriculum includes material on spiritual formation for pioneering ministry; elements of missiology, ecclesiology and cultural exegesis; and how to begin, sustain and bring to maturity a fresh expression of church. The course takes place over 6 weekday evenings, 3 Saturdays and 1 residential weekend spread throughout the academic year-for a total of 26 classroom hours. This course will be a part of Wycliffe's new M.Div. "pioneer stream". It is adapted from the course used in several seminaries in the UK as part of the Church of England's training for "Ordained Pioneer Ministries". This is in turn a part of the Fresh Expressions initiative of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. Requirements: placement, field reports, class participation, reading, book reports, essay.
