Sustainable Mission – Pioneer Ministry for the Longer Term
January 31st, 1-4pm at Salisbury Diocesan Education Centre, Wilton SP2 0FG
Speaker: Paul Bradbury
Pioneers are those who are primarily drawn to engage with those outside the church, gathering others around them as they seek to establish new contextual and ecclesial Christian communities. However, to make any such initiative sustainable, the pioneer must also build a strong team of people around them who will share the vision and the ministry. Paul’s desire is to see more pioneers, lay and ordained, trained and empowered to lead incarnational mission in their context. This workshop will focus on team-building, with Paul encouraging a leadership style which is facilitative rather than depending on heroic individuals. It will also offer plenty of opportunity for pioneers across the Diocese of Salisbury and further abroad to come together to share expertise and learn from one another.
Paul Bradbury is an ordained pioneer minister in Poole who has established a flourishing missional community reaching those who don’t want to engage with traditional forms of church. He also supports a learning community of lay pioneers in East Dorset, and is a Fresh Expressions Associate. Paul’s new book, ‘Stepping into Grace’ (BRF 2016) is described by Phil Potter, Leader of Fresh Expressions, as ‘A must-read for aspiring pioneer leaders.’
