DOMA sponsors "Mission Shaped Ministry"
By the Rev’d Clancy Nixon
DOMA and the Virginia Baptists are sponsors of Mission Shaped Ministry (MSM), which is a one-year, part time, interdenominational learning community, designed to equip both clergy and lay people who are serious about reaching truly unchurched people. This MSM will meet in Annandale, Virginia, and near Baltimore.
In Britain, 2,000 new missional communities have been birthed through the Fresh Expressions (FX) Movement in the last eight years, resulting in 66,000 new believers in Jesus! We want to get on board this exciting movement.
This course will teach you how to do it, as you learn alongside other practitioners, as you receive encouragement, accountability, and coaching. It includes two weekend retreats in Maryland and five Saturday sessions in Annandale. DOMA will pay half the $750 cost for members of DOMA churches who are recommended by their Rector or Bishop.For more information about the work of Fresh Expressions in the US, or to sign up for the MSM, click here under “Training and events,” and for robust, detailed information and resources about the FX missional movement, go to the British FX website, here.
