The Church in the Neighbourhood
(Prerequisite: Missional Church or Church in Mission)
Following on from Missional Church, this course introduces students to current issues in evangelism through the local church. The course will begin by examining how the missional church conversation became a conversation about neighbourhood engagement. It will explore the theology of place, the gathered and dispersed life of the local church, the abundant communities movement, and God’s concern for the common good, as well as developing a spirituality of the church in the neighbourhood.
Students will learn from leading Canadian practitioners and be provided with tools to help them exegete a neighbourhood , which activity will form a major part of their work for this class. Students will also be taught skills for leading a neighbourhood missional group.
