Cultivating Mission Community Series

In October 2016, we trained several local congregations and leaders in the practice of “Dwelling in the World,” led by Pat Taylor Ellison of Church Innovations. Learn more at www.churchinnovations.org, and stay tuned for additional training opportunities in 2017 to learn new missional practices. 

About Dwelling in the World

  • Learn why and how to seek and encounter the persons of peace God places in our path in daily life.
  • Get a tool for intentionally meeting and listening to others and practice using it.
  • Start a small group for nurturing this spiritual practice in your church.

Praise for the Dwelling in the World Workshop

“Jesus said, ‘Go make disciples.’ But how do we do that? The Dwelling in the World workshop is a great benefit to get people thinking about how to connect with others of our community in the name of Jesus. It gives people a nudge and the confidence to see what this may look like in daily life. For us at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, the workshop was a catalyst for 10 people to commit that they would seek out spiritual conversations and then come together in a small group setting to find encouragement and share stories. We all knew we should be doing this. The Dwelling in the World workshop was a resource to make it happen.”
