WYP2620YY  L0101
Offered in Fall 2011  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · 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 alternate Thursday evenings, but also includes two Saturdays and one residential weekend, for a total of 48 classroom hours. This course is a requirement in Wycliffe's new M.Div. "pioneer track". 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. Teaching methods: lectures, discussions, supervised placement.
