Explore the Enneagram

The session was terrific!!! Thank you and the speakers. I am a 3w2, and “heard my heart called” several times.

The Enneagram is a personality type theory that argues nine different personality types exist in the world. It’s time to discover why it’s an effective tool to implement within organizations, ministries and workplaces. Bringing the Enneagram as a tool to use within your church increases the quality of communication among your team members.

The Enneagram’s surge in popularity among Christians has spawned an increased demand for resources from spiritual seekers hoping to identify and explore their personality types. In response, New Church Ministry invites you to this exploration to:

  • Apply the principles to your personal and spiritual growth
  • Strengthen successful relationships at home, at church and in the community 
  • Develop leaders, build teams, and enhance communication skills 
  • Integrate into your Bible studies, therapy sessions, retreats and individual spiritual practice.

The episode featured guests Trey Flowers (Senior Pastor at Downey Avenue Christian Church), Christiana Rice (leading practitioner and visionary voice in the Parish Movement), and Kim Ryan (Co-Director/Pastor of Bethany Fellows).

Joining the episode’s guests and host on the New Church Ministry Facebook page for a live Q&A are Assistant Minister of New Church Ministry Jose Martinez and Disciples Church Extension Fund Creative Writer/Digital Media Specialist Nadine Compton.
