Quincy Brown: Engaging Your Community: Answering the Questions Your Community Is Asking
Participants receive a certificate for 1-hour CEU following the online class.
The church’s mission is to make disciples and teach them to obey everything Jesus taught. For most churches, however, the struggle isn’t the definition of a disciple. Instead, the challenge is how the church structures itself to help people embody the promise of life change for community impact that transforms the world. To put it another way, the Church needs a process guided by its mission of discipleship to engage people inside and outside the church wall.
Dr. Quincy Brown knows something about engaging your church community. In his upcoming book, The Discipleship Path Workbook: Discerning, Dreaming and Developing Practices for Life Change, Brown takes readers through an in-depth study of how to get your church fully engaged.
