CHURCH LEARNING JOURNEY


The Regent Exchange Learning Journey for churches includes two main components:

1. PARTICIPATION IN A REGENT EXCHANGE LEARNING COMMUNITY

The heart of this program is participation in a cohort of up to 10 churches who engage in a 12-month Learning Journey led by Regent Exchange. Each church is represented by a Learning Team of 4-8 members who are committed to discover, discern, design, and implement ministry projects that deepen their congregation’s understanding of vocation in practical ways. 

Along with completing various learning tasks throughout their Learning Journey, church teams accompany one another through regular Peer Group meetings, meet with a coach for support, and have access to a Learning Journey Resource Guide. Church teams are encouraged to engage the rest of their congregation in vocation initiatives using the learning tasks and other small group resources provided by Regent Exchange. 


2. DEVELOPMENT OF A MINISTRY PROJECT IN YOUR CHURCH

Learning Teams engage a design process to discern how God may be inviting their church to new ways of living into their individual and collective vocations. Each Learning Team will receive grant funding to implement a ministry project that draws upon their learning as they discern how God is calling them to love their neighbours and contribute to the common good in creative ways during this present season. 

Ministry projects could be anything from helping individual church members reflect on their vocations in light of God’s story to mobilizing a whole church to meet a particular need in its neighbourhood. We encourage churches to design and undertake projects that build and strengthen connections within their local communities and respond to needs felt beyond the church walls with the goal of contributing to the common good.
