Gateway Year: Disrupting Survival Mode
Beginning in May of 2021, the CLC leadership team will offer four online learning sessions and one in-person retreat, roughly 8 weeks apart. Each online learning session will be offered on a Wednesday night AND a Saturday morning (same content, choice of attendance). Practice application homework will be offered after each session, as will opportunities for both individual and team coaching.
Teams from congregations are strongly encouraged to attend and participate together. The greatest change and congregational impact will come from a team effort. A team is generally conceived as 4-6 members participating with a pastor(s) and leadership is often shared between a team member and pastor. Teams from churches without pastors may be led by a congregational leader. And, given pandemic realities, triads, pairs, and individuals will still be invited to participate.
Each cycle will introduce some informational content, but more importantly, will allow time for participants to reflect and contextualize the content, create their own follow up, and reflect in community with others also seeking to practice and live into deeper discipleship.
