Online Learning Collective: Exploring the Jesus-centred life in a polarized world

October 7 to November 192020

This online learning collective is a challenging, six-week, cohort-based, relational learning and formation adventure with peer ministry leaders.

Together we’ll go beyond learning to dive deep into the utterly unique and life-giving vision of Jesus of Nazareth. We’ll explore the theology and implications of seeing Jesus as the model human being — the One we are called to follow in our polarized world. 

Together we’ll explore: 

✓ The implications of Jesus’ core message and vocation for discipleship, mission, and non-violent peacemaking 

✓ How to hold a theologically centred-set/third-way posture in a polarized world

✓ How an overly Eurocentric Gospel can stifle ethnic and racial diversity in churches

✓ How a Jesus-centred faith compels us towards justice and racial reconciliation 

Is this for you? 

Online Learning Collectives are designed for highly motivated leaders seeking a brave, safe space to be deeply formed in Jesus-centred living and mission.

This is for pastors, ministry leads, leaders of Christian organizations, and leaders curious about an Anabapt-ish” approach to Jesus and discipleship from North America and around the world.

Over the course of the past several years I’ve felt an increased leadership burden. The Jesus Collective OLC was a game changer for me; I now feel more optimistic in my ministry and leadership.” ‑Evan, Lead Pastor

This is like a treasure I didn’t know I was looking for. When I look back at the monumental moments in my faith, this will be one of them.” ‑Melanie, Pastor
