The third class Mission Alive hosted was Confronting Spiritual ADHD (Church as Attentive Community). Does your church suffer from too much activity and not enough listening? How can the church become a community of spiritual attentiveness? This class discusses this paradigm change for the 21st century church.
The class was taught by Jarrod Robinson, minister of the word at Southern Hills Church of Christ in Abilene, TX, and Charles Kiser, the director of training at Mission Alive and a church planter in Dallas, TX.
The second class Mission Alive hosted was Missional R & D: Church as Adaptive Community. What does research and development have to do with the church? What do churches and entrepreneurs have in common? In this class, these questions are discussed and how churches faithfully adapt to their changing contexts.
The class was taught by Dr. Phil Claycomb, the executive director of Nexus and Charles Kiser, the director of training at Mission Alive and a church planter in Dallas, TX.
This year, Mission Alive hosted three of the classes at the Pepperdine Lectureships. For the next three weeks, starting today, we will be sharing with you recordings from all three classes, in case you missed them this year or you wanted to hear them again.
The first class Mission Alive hosted was Keep Church Weird: Church as Alternative Community. As an outpost of God’s reign, the church is a counter-culture to the prevailing culture around it, though perhaps in unexpected ways that is good news to those outside the church. This recording discusses how the church embodies an alternative way of life in its North American neighborhood.
