Fresh Expressions workshop
Please note: This is the first day of Daylight Savings Time
The event is designed for churches that are seeking to reach and disciple those in their communities that are not interested in the institutional church. Participants will be introduced to Fresh Expressions, a model of outreach which is typically lay led. Rev. Barry Sloan will share his first-hand experience using this model in reaching Germans uninterested in the church. Representatives from Church Development will also introduce a new Fresh Expressions grant that will provide Indiana UM churches with up to $1,000 to help them launch a Fresh Expressions ministry. In order to be eligible for the grant, a congregation will need to attend this or one of the other Fresh Expressions grants Church Development will be offering in 2018.
Rev. Barry Sloan will be the featured presenter. Barry is a Methodist pastor from Northern Ireland who is serving as Director of Evangelism for the German United Methodist Church. He and his wife, Gillian, have helped launch a fresh expression of church called "INSPIRE" in Chemnitz, Germany.
