Introduction to Pioneering

How do pioneers start church?

Activity 1

Where or who do you feel called to build church amongst? Take some time to think, pray and map out the people/place that you feel called to. This may be mapping where you already are in order to have fresh eyes for it or it maybe about totally a totally new context.

Activity 2

What could a practice be for your context for each of these stages? A practice for:

  • Listening
  • Loving & Serving
  • Building Community
  • Exploring Discipleship
  • Forming Church
  • Multiplication

We can sometimes see church as an either/or. Either needs to be in a church building or it needs to be ‘out there’ with ‘them’. What would a ‘mixed ecology’ of church look like where you are? Both settling in one place and emerging where others are too?
