MLV3640 Transitioning a Church to Missional Communities

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Matthew Murphy

Course Description:

This course examines issues for transitioning a church from an attractional, seeker sensitive, traditional, program driven church to a missional community driven church. For those serving in or planting from an established church this course will look at the process to change an already established church. This class will give students a step by step systems to develop a discipleship culture in their church transforming people into missional disciple makers.

How This Course Benefits Students:

The less Christian our society becomes the less the attractional, seeker sensitive, traditional, program driven church will be relevant. More and more churches will need to make the decision to change or die. It is important that the Church begin to learn to transition to a missional community based church to make disciples that make disciples.

Why This Course Is Important:

The studies show that less and less people are attending church. With less and less of the younger generations having an interest in church the Church cant keep doing church the way it has always been done. The Church will need to make a transition to stay relevant.
