Pioneering (within the mission of God)
A series of three webinars exploring the theme of pioneering, hosted by the Church of the Brethren and organised together with Urban Expression, Bristol Baptist College and BMS World Mission.
Within the mission of God and among the diverse ministries in the church, pioneering is essential if the Christian community is to keep in step with the purposes of God and resist institutional inertia. The biblical narrative includes many examples of women and men who exercised pioneering roles and a number of designations that have pioneering implications (apostles and prophets are examples). The rapidly changing cultural context in western societies, described in various ways, together with the decline and marginalisation of the church, requires the identification, equipping and deployment of pioneers willing to explore fresh expressions of mission and church. And the world church through the centuries and today offers many examples of pioneering ministry in diverse cultures and contexts. This series of webinars explores the role of pioneers in post-Christendom western societies, offers a biblical/theological foundation for pioneering within the mission of God and reflects on what can be learned from the world church.
