This innovative hybrid course is designed for students interested in new church planting and entrepreneurial leadership in congregations and beyond. Course material will include historical and theological reflections on when and how new faith communities have been seeded and cultivated in Unitarian Universalist contexts. Participants will design a research project that could take the form of a comprehensive plan and prospectus for their own future church plant project, a survey of recent UU church plants and best practices, a comparative theology of progressive and evangelical church planting; all which would add to a growing body of knowledge in this field. SKSM and GTU students interested in enrolling should submit a brief introduction and project proposal with Faculty Consent request.
Online with bi-weekly small group meetings via ZOOM. (Tentatively some Tuesday mornings)
