An Introduction to Cultivated Ministry with John Vest | 10-17-18

An Introduction to Cultivated Ministry: Bearing Fruit through Theology, Accountability, Learning, and Storytelling with John Vest facilitating.

How do we measure success in ministry when the traditional metrics of membership, attendance, and financial support seem out of touch with the realities of our post-Christendom contexts? Cultivated Ministry is a culture shift and approach to ministry that is committed to rigorous assessment, evaluation, and (re)design aimed at nurturing thoughtful expressions of God’s mission in the world. It does not rest on traditional metrics, nor does it abdicate accountability. This training will give participants an overview of the four interlocking components of Cultivated Ministry: Theology of Bearing Fruit, Mutual Accountability, Assessment for Learning, and Transformative Storytelling.

John Vest is the Visiting Assistant Professor of Evangelism at Union Presbyterian Seminary and served on the task force that developed the Cultivated Ministry resource with NEXT Church.
