Missional Leader Cohort
ReWire exists to empower the body of Christ to live as missionaries in their own communities
To be deeply rooted in God and connected to the pain of the world.
Often the Church has not seen creating people to live as missionaries as its primary task. Nor has the Church been structured to help people discover and live out their God given calling. The Church has routinely been reduced to finding volunteers for its own operations. Now is the time for a new kind of discipleship. One that is rooted in the deep experience of Christ’s love and in encountering the redemptive work of Christ in the places of pain around the world. ReWire’s Missional Leader Cohorts provide support and training to help pastors and missional leaders mobilize their congregations into their own communities and into the world.
Missional Leader Cohorts (MLC) are a set of 5 retreats over two years that are designed to provide direction for you to rethink, retool, and renew your leadership. This is done in a community of pastors/leaders who are on the same missional journey.
You will be given tools for your journey:
Beyond: A weekly curriculum designed to help members discover and live out their life calling in a community of committed Christians. Classes in the Beyond series can be customized to the needs of each church.
Deep Waters: A monthly course that will train your leaders over a 10 month period. This is done through a guided spiritual direction process. It will equip your congregational leaders to implement our Beyond process.
This approach assumes the following:
Missionaries can be developed
It is the role of the church to develop missionaries
Mission comes from God and is placed into the life and heart of all members
Mission centered spiritual direction is the best way to create long-term, vision-directed, Kingdom-focused missionaries.
- Training basic skills as a missional spiritual director
- Tried and tested material and methods for mission discipleship
- Establishment of a network of pastors for mutual learning and support
MLC will meet for five, 2-day retreats over the course of 24 months. After the first two retreats, MLC members will have access to Deep Waters and Beyond curriculum and can start teaching it in their congregations. After the full 24-month program, MLC participants will have access to all Deep Waters curriculum, Beyond curriculum, and all ReWire programs. This process will yield a small group of activated agents that will fuel missional change in your congregation.
