Going to uncharted territory can be exciting, but also nerve wracking. It is always more assuring if you go with someone who knows the terrain.

2

JOIN AN EXPEDITION

Gather with other Christians who want to experience and explore what God is doing in the world.

Available Expeditions

Because no Christian community should lack vitality.

Storied Churches Expedition

Every church has a story, but we are not always aware of God’s larger story in our communities. In this expedition, you will explore your own stories while you participate in what God is doing in the region.

This expedtion is open to pastors.

Monthly, September 2019 to May 2020

Participate in God’s Story

Improv Mission Expedition

The Bible is silent on how Jesus ran a session meeting or how his ministry committee planned outreach events. Instead, Jesus and the disciples participated in ministry along the way. They improvized as opportunities arose. 

Each month this year, we are looking for churches to host a Mission Improv event that includes an Improv Learning Lab and a Mission Improv activity.

This expedition is open to any follower of Jesus.

Monthly, January to December 2020

Curiosity Expedition

Curiosity peaks in humans between 4 and 5 years old because we start to develop self-awareness and we worry what other people will think about our explorations.

The problem with this is that curiosity gives birth to answers, explanations, and solutions to our challenges.

In this expediation, churches partner with child from the community to regain a sense of curiosity. This will lead churches to more powerful and impactful outreach.

This expedtion is open to churches.

Monthly, January to December 2020

Get Curious!

Inside-Out Faith

 Jesus goes to people and so did the early church.

Instead of asking where all of the people have gone, our churches will be more faithful to ask: where is Jesus going?

Living in community with those who are outside of our bounds is the setting of God’s good news and the context of discipleship.

IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!

We have new worshipping communities in Ashland AND Mansfield, and they speak…Chinese.

On July 7th, 2018 First Presbyterian Church of Ashland launched a new congregation, pastored by Dr. Li “Dolly” Dong. Each Saturday there is a community meal at 5pm, followed by worship at 6pm.
