MISSION CAPSULE: Last fall, ministry leaders from across Canada came together for the Presbyterian Church in Canada’s Transform online course. Over four weeks, Rick Morse – co-creator of the New Beginnings church renewal program and author of Making a Congregational Plan that Makes Sense – challenged leaders to imagine what it means to faithfully respond to God’s mission and engage others to be missional. The course, which was made possible through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing … equipped leaders with the transformative tools, principles and insights necessary to discern God’s call for their ministries’ futures and create plans for moving forward.
