We are excited to announce that the schedule has been set for Summer 2017 Learning Communities and signups are now open.
 
What is a Learning Community?
A learning community through 58 is an opportunity to grow alongside other ministry leaders in understanding of and implementation of solutions that promote justice in mission funding. You’ll join a small group of other ministry practitioners to learn, share, experiment, pray, and journey together.
 
What to Expect
Our Summer 2017 Learning Communities will meet via online video calls for one hour once per month during May, June, July, and August. Before each meeting you’ll be given a short audio podcast to listen to that will help guide you in reflections to prepare you for the upcoming call. Each call will last approximately an hour.
 
Schedule
We’re offering two different times for learning communities to try and work better with everyone’s schedules. Each learning community will cover the same topics.
 
Here’s what we’ll be covering each month:
May – Share your journey that led you to join a learning community around these issues. How do you define the problem? (We’ll explore how our definition of the problem will open or limit possible solutions)
June – Developing a deeper theology of mission funding
July – What are your fears around funding and justice? What are examples of possible solutions?
August – What is a next step you can take today?
 
We believe that each of these topics are crucial for a ministry/team to be able to make the changes necessary to fund mission equitably.
