Enroll in Missional Learning Communities Course

07.16.21 | Homepage | by Canon Carrie Boren Headington

    Saturday, August 21 we are launching our Missional Learning Communities (aka Stanton Center Evangelism Course). This monthly course covers both personal and parish evangelism. Students will meet monthly through May at the Stanton Center (Church of the Incarnation location) from 4:00 -6:00 p.m. and will simultaneously be taught online.  

    This course is especially designed to equip and ignite laity in how they can share their faith in daily life and how they can support and encourage outreach, mission, and evangelism at their local parish.  

    Upon completion of this course, your lay leader will be able to be commissioned into the Order of Evangelists, a community dedicated to praying for parish outreach and mission, to living out the good news in word and deed, and to missional leadership in the parish.

    Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions at 903-399-3230 (cell).
