Church Planters Boot Camp (Summer 2018)
Since field research shows a huge correlation between effective church planting and a focused training that’s five days or more, we’re offering an intensive five-day training event that will focus on the practical nuts and bolts of church planting. Participants will focus on the practical What and How of church planting so that current and prospective church planters can plant more thoughtfully and effectively. This group training will allow participants to rub shoulders with budding and experienced church planters in order to network, build collegial relationships, and share insight, encouragement, and best practices. This training is ideal for anyone who is actively planting or seriously contemplating planting a new church in the ELCA.
This training intensive is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Redeemer Lutheran Church (a multisite church in the Chicago area), with partner support from the ELCA’s Congregational and Synodical Mission unit, the Metropolitan Chicago Synod, and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
The dates and venue for the summer 2018 boot camp are being reviewed. The cost for the program will be $500 per participant. This includes all training materials, books, and daily coffee service during the training.
To draw on a wide range of expertise, experiences, and perspectives, our training team includes a diverse group of church planting practitioners from within and outside the ELCA.
