Unpacking the Core Competencies of DisciplesNEXT: Contemplative Action

May 8 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm EDT

What does contemplative action look like in our daily lives? Join Rev. Brian Frederick-Gray, Director of Justice and Advocacy Ministries for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada and host Rev. Dr. Jose Martinez, Minister of New Church Strategies, for an IMPACT webinar that explores this core competency of DisciplesNEXT, its connections to spiritual formation, and what it has to do with New Church!

To equip Disciples movement initiators DisciplesNEXT will foster three core competencies in our leaders: Contemplative Action, Prophetic Advocacy and Faith-Rooted Organizing.

Contemplative Action

This competency is aligned with “Be the Good News” of New Church Ministry‘s Mission. Not only is spiritual formation crucial for leaders starting new faith communities, but those spiritual disciplines and practices also motivate the faith community.

IMPACT is a dynamic series that embraces diversity, welcoming influential leaders from a multitude of faith traditions and backgrounds. From established religious institutions to emerging spiritual movements, IMPACT showcases a broad spectrum of voices and perspectives, ensuring participants have a rich tapestry of insights to draw from. While each of its speakers bring a distinct approach and innovative strategies to the table, equipping participants with a toolkit of ideas to create thriving, inclusive places of worship that resonate with today’s seekers, IMPACT emphasizes the power of storytelling as a catalyst for change. Whether you are an aspirational individual looking to make a difference or a member of an established congregation that is considering revitalizing its mission, IMPACT is your transformative guide. Join us as we delve into the profound potential that storytelling has to shape the future of faith communities worldwide.
