Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
One of the changes taking place across the world, is the approach to how we educate people.
Media (TV, radio, social sites, video access) has blown past the lecture-by-expert mode if the Industrial era ... for which we built schooling facilities based on the factory model of mass production. Learning was rote (“mechanical or habitual repetition of something to be learned”).
Our technology-driven culture provides a variety of learning experiences, such as video-classes, roundtable interaction, TED talks (mini-lectures), self-discovery ...
So, how to we implement changes by incorporating these modes of learning into our “church service” approach to make-disciples?
A revising of our standardized Sunday-morning-Church format:
Week 1 - The Word: Teach the context and content of a biblical passage (sermonic)
Week 2: - The Body: Apply the truths of that passage to contemporary life (workshop-style; discussion)
Week 3 - The Table - A complete dedication of time to the Lord’s Table (praise, prayer, sharing , the bread & wine)
Week 4 - The Saints - Focus on equipping for leadership, stewardship, worship, discipleship
