The Scattering: Imagining a Church that Connects Faith and Life

A Discussion of The Scattering: Imagining a Church that Connects Faith and Life by Dwight DuBois.

SHIFT: Three Big Moves for the 21st Century Church with author Mark Tidsworth

This page contains information discussed at the 2016 Synod Leadership Days. Specifically included are the videos with Mark Tidsworth discussing his book SHIFT: Three Big Moves for the 21st Century Church. These videos cover important cultural changes that all congregations are now learning to deal with. They focus on three core tasks: shifting from membership to discipleship models of being the Church; shifting from attraction to mission in our core ways of acting like the Church; and shifting from our disciples being seen as consumers of the church product, and instead becoming Sacred Partners in the mission, vision, and values of our faith lived out together. We are also including a worksheet to foster discussion.
