There’s the theology that a church says it believes, and then there’s what people actually experience in the ministry of that church. How far apart is the explicit theology from the implicit theology in your church?
The culture of your church is a largely a product of this implicit theology of lived experience.
Redemption Groups are a powerful catalyst for church culture, because they involve powerful relational experiences of the redeeming love of Christ in some of the deepest areas of life. What participants experience in these groups can have a huge impact on the community throughout the church as group participants relate to others with renewed gospel vision and personal depth.
This training is offered two ways:
- A one day interactive seminar. A key advantage of this approach, especially when you have a whole team of leaders take it together, is that it is more personal, interactive, and experiential. This harmonizes very well with the objectives of this course which include self-examination and awareness-raising about cultural matters, which both live inside of us individually and also happen around us and influence us.

- An online course. A key advantage of this approach is being able to do the course on your own time at your own pace. And if you’re not part of a team large enough to make it feasible for the live seminar, the online course is still an opportunity to engage in the content and interact with other students in the online discussion.
