What Would Get Jesus Killed Today?

Join pastor & professor Paul Eddy as we explore the radical implications of living our lives and forming our theology with Jesus at the centre. We’ll unpack assumptions of secular and religious cultures and work through five aspects of Jesus-centred living that just might get Jesus and his followers killed today.

The best part: Our Live Podcast will include Q&A with Paul plus facilitated break-out conversations to apply and learn from others.

# Online Learning Collectives

Jesus-centred Leadership Formation is one of our key areas of focus. We’re excited to be offering a series of Online Learning Collectives – six week, cohort-based formation experiences featuring facilitated small group learning, weekly spiritual practices, live interaction with thought leaders, one-on-one coaching, interactive online forums, and curated learning resources.

Who are these for?

Lead/​Senior pastors; leaders of Christian organizations; staff pastors or ministry leaders in multi-staff churches; youth, family, and discipleship pastors; new leaders to ministry; and leaders new to an Anabapt-ish,” Jesus-centred approach to ministry and discipleship.

Featured Online Learning Collectives

Our last Online Learning Collective was focused on preparing pastors for ministry in a post-Christian context. The theme for our current Online Learning Collective is Exploring the Jesus-Centred Way in a Polarized World, including live engagement with Bruxy Cavey, Danielle Strickland, Brad Jersak, Greg Boyd, and other thought leaders from within this movement.

# Live Podcasts

These are relational, online learning and equipping hangouts – a safe space for like-minded leaders to wrestle with what Jesus-centred living and leadership means while learning from and engaging interactively with thought and practice leaders from this growing Jesus-centred movement.

In each live podcast, attendees can interact with our featured guest(s) and each other through a live discussion and Q&A time and join smaller break-out rooms to meet others and process the topic together. The content will be challenging and provide some practical equipping ideas that can make a difference in our everyday Jesus-centred life and leadership. 

Featured conversations are listed below. Check back often for new additions! All of our online podcasts are posted to our podcast channel.

Jesus-centred Discipleship in the Post-election Reality

Political polarization in U.S. church communities has never been greater, and the whole world is watching with uncertainty at what will unfold in the wake of the November 2020 election. In this live podcast, we converse with two pastors leading churches in North Carolina and Arizona, both highly polarized swing states. We discuss practical ways to talk about politics and explore strategies and experiential ways to keep Jesus at the centre of discipleship and mission.

(Re)centring on Jesus in a Time of Crisis & Opportunity

Join Greg Boyd, Danielle Strickland, and Bruxy Cavey as they explore the importance of keeping Jesus at the centre. Why does it allow us to be hopeful and see this time as an opportunity? How does it inform how we see God and his role amidst crisis? How do we care for ourselves and our communities well? And if we’re truly focused on following Jesus, what will our churches be known for?

This conversation was recorded during our UNITE | ONLINE gathering.

# Prayer Gatherings

We’re committed to coming together in prayer on a regular basis – praying for each other, our churches and ministries, our network, and this movement. Together we seek the Spirit’s leading and prioritize our own transformation as leaders.

You can join our weekly online prayer gathering together with other pastors and leaders connected to Jesus Collective.

Our weekly prayer gathering happens Thursdays at 1 pm ET.

Sign up to join in.

# Regional Gatherings

Regional gatherings are an opportunity to learn more about Jesus Collective, cast vision together, meet new like-minded peers, and network relationally with people in your neck of the woods. They are informal, typically one-day events that also feature a focused development session with a thought leader centred on themes and topics of interest to this movement.

We’ve held events in cities in Canada, the US, and the UK. Check back regularly to see an updated listing, and give us a shout if you’d like to request a gathering in your area.

Have ideas? Interested in a gathering in your area? Get in touch.

# Innovation Labs

We host online and in-person innovation labs that bring together like-minded church partners within our network to collaborate around current opportunities and challenges facing our churches and communities. These include focused, facilitated forums, best practice sharing, cross pollination of innovative Kingdom ideas, and mutual equipping and encouragement.

Innovation labs can be one or more sessions online or in person, and are custom designed to meet the needs of the participants.

Sample topics include envisioning the future of the church post COVID-19, ideas for effectively reaching spiritually curious people, being on mission in a post-Christian context, Jesus-centred discipleship frameworks and approaches, and church governance best practices.

If you’re Interested in proposing or joining an innovation lab, we’d love to talk.
