Church Planting 2.0. is built around the Church Planting Handbook, and includes web-conference meetings with a senior CPR staff member, video lectures, facilitated reflection, assignments and access to a host of supporting handouts and articles. This online courses is as challenging a it is enriching.
Needs for new ministry developers are changing quickly, so we revamped this course to make it more flexible and accessible and to feature a wider variety of voices. That means on-demand access, a more user-friendly web format, and fresh content.
For Church Planting 2.0 we shifted away from linear course design and toward a “stacking model”: think of blocks that learners can arrange or “stack” according to their learning goals and available time. High-quality, shorter, content-rich videos from respected leaders and teachers coupled with exercise and assignments make the opportunity more valuable than ever. Working closely with our curriculum developer, we have worked to ensure that busy adult learners will be more inspired and better equipped as they build the church for tomorrow.
We have reviewed the latest pedagogical methods and a top-notch team turned the five-session 2.0 course into a set of three flexible modules, each of which includes three units.
Church Planting 2.0 is now fully on-demand! You can buy access to the entire course ($299), an individual focus ($125), or and individual module ($49). Start at any time and work through at your own pace.
