Joy in Christ, as a way of life

Register now for Moving Back into the Neighborhood!

One of the clearest movements post-Easter was the one that had the disciples opening doors and moving with curiosity into their neighborhood. This movement, accompanied by the infusion of confidence (not arrogance) with the presence of the Holy Spirit, led to the servant-missional-church that helped turn the world upside down. 

We have an upcoming workshop opportunity to begin exploring how God is calling us into fresh expressions of mission and ministry in our own neighborhoods and communities. Together, we’ll learn a method that will help the church discern how to engage with the community and mission opportunities.

Friday, October 30, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

For Clergy, Parish Leadership & Other Interested Parishioners

What is MBiN?

There is a growing movement of congregations across North America who believe God is calling them into fresh expressions of mission and ministry in their neighborhoods and communities. This movement is energized by the conviction that the Spirit of God is still at work in the world and the times of discouragement are passing. The Spirit invites us into the dawn of a new day for local churches.

God is up to something out ahead of us in our neighborhoods and communities.

MBiN is a workshop that brings a message of hope to congregations and their leaders. It takes participants on a journey to explore what God is already doing in their neighborhoods by learning how to listen to God through one another, giving context to what type of church they are, providing direction on how to go on the journey as a church and suggesting some next steps to consider.

Join us as we discern together how churches within the Diocese of Rochester can move back into the neighborhood!
