Keep Your Eyes on the Prize: Mission and Missionary Discipleship
ONLINE: JANUARY 28, 2021 FROM 9:30 A.M. TO 3:00 P.M. CENTRAL TIME
REGISTRATION FEE: $90
If you have worked in parish ministry for more than five years, you have heard the buzzwords “Evangelization,” the “New Evangelization” or “Missionary Disciple.” So, what is new about evangelization? Why is this different?
Is this just another program for me to run?
What if I told you that there is nothing “new” about evangelization and this is different from things we have done in the past? And, no, it is not a program. What I want to show you takes a paradigm shift in our thinking.
It is hard, messy work. However, if given the time to grow and implement, it will change the culture of a parish. The Prize that we speak of is the making of disciples who make more disciples!
