Shift Learning Experience

Eventbrite - SHIFT Learning Experience


A learning experience for lay leadership teams, clergy, and church staffs, sponsored by CBF Kentucky at St. Matthews Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky.

Three Big Moves for the 21st Century Church: Shift describes three major 21st Century movements in congregations, which are relevant and pertinent to the world in which we find ourselves: 1) Membership Culture to Discipleship Culture, 2) Consumer Church to Sacred Partnering, and 3) Attractional Church to Missional Church.

The shifts happening in culture, to which God's church is proactively responding, are growing clear. Now we can describe major responses - healthy, proactive, faithful, courageous responses - all of which are encouraging for God's church.

Each segment of the Shift Learning Experience includes opportunities for learning, personal reflection, and dialogue. Shift is an interactional learning experience consisting of presentation, videos, individual reflection, small group dialogue, and large group interaction.
