*Leading Missional Communities* is the third of four units offered in partnership with 3D Movements (Missional Communities Australia). The unit will commence with a four-day seminar where content and practices will be presented.
This unit introduces students to the theological and practical nature of missional communities. It explores the foundations for missional communities as well as the key characteristics required for those seeking to lead these communities. It seeks to equip students with the skills to cultivate and launch a missional community in their own ministry context.
