Certificate Course: What is the Church?
This course will be a journey in exploring the multifaceted ways we speak of and imagine what it means to be the Church. We will not only reflect on the historical roots and form of Church, but the emerging forms of being and becoming authentic communities of disciples invested in transformative action. Participants will also be invited, challenged, and nudged to consider how the Spirit is summoning them to be a part of the continuing creation of the Church, the living manifestation of Christ’ presence in the world.

All are welcome at LIFE! Students, pastors, laypersons and seekers from all denominations and walks of life are welcome to join the program to be enriched and inspired by LIFE. Join us!
