Sunday, March 11
Fresh Expressions Event
Mt. Comfort UMC
"Fresh Expressions" are new models of ministries designed to reach and disciple people who are uninterested in institutional church. This model began in Europe and is gaining in popularity here in the U.S. Learn more about the movement in the U.S. at the "Fresh Expressions U.S." web site.
To help our Indiana United Methodist churches learn more about this model of ministry, and embrace how it can help us reach our communities in contextually relevant and unique ways, Church Development is offering a series of "Fresh Expressions" workshops this year. The next one is Sunday, March 11, in the Indianapolis area. Rev. Barry Sloan, a missionary from Northern Ireland, serving The United Methodist Church in Germany, will share his first-hand experience using this model in reaching Germans uninterested in the church.
In addition to these events, Church Development recently began offering a new type of grant to support these "Fresh Expressions" projects. Learn more about these grants and requirements to apply.
