IFD272 – A Quiet Pentecost
Course Dates: Check Back Soon
Are you on the look out for Pentecost—renewed life, vitality, and change in your church? Could it be that the Pentecost is brewing, but that it is neither loud nor readily noticed? Dwight Judy believes that “over the past thirty years, a quiet revolution has been occurring in Christian life…many small and quiet Pentecosts are happening across the church.” Renewal is taking place as small groups and whole congregations take up spiritual formation practices that invite the Spirit into small Groups, Worship, Mission Discernment, Age-Level Ministries, Prayer Groups, and Spiritual Life Ministries.
Join this online course with Dr. Dwight Judy as we explore his book, A Quiet Pentecost: Inviting the Spirit into Congregational Life which must be purchased separately from course enrollment. Purchase the book separately from course enrollment. All who enroll will be emailed a discount code good for 25% off of the purchase price.
Together we will:
- Review the case studies of small groups and congregations around the U.S. that are experiencing renewal through spiritual practice.
- Hone in on a framework from which any small group or congregation can begin to foster its own quiet Pentecost.
- Guide individuals and leadership teams in listening well to the current reality of their group, ministry, or congregation in preparation for implementing the practices of a quiet Pentecost.
It’s suggested that participants take this eCourse in ministry team groups or as individuals with a particular ministry setting in mind. Leadership teams (from the same church or ministry organization) who enroll together will receive a discount on enrollment fees.
