MA Collaboration in Total Christ Ecclesiology
There are five ways that the MA community participate in MA collaboration.
MA Google Group
Those who participate in MA Google groups consist of all lead pastors/planters and associate/assistant pastors/planters of MA anchor/mission churches.
MA Monthly Global Collaborations (video conf.)
Global Collaborations consist of all lead pastors/planters of MA anchor churches/church plants only.
MA Monthly Local Collaborations (local sites)
Each month, our collaborators get together for a time of sharing prayer requests, talking about the nuts-and-bolts of ministry, and having a theological discussion and reflection on a shared reading for the month. Collaborators consist of lead anchor church pastor(s), all lead mission church planters, their respective associate/assistant pastors and invited like-minded pastors from local area churches/church plants.
MA Annual Collaboration (rotating sites)
Each year we have an annual Mission Anabaino conference. Here, a handful of selected collaborators present papers on the annual theme, to then discuss in our gathering. Our 2017 Conference will be held in Milwaukee, WI May 3rd-5th. Participants include those who participate in both local and global collaborative together with invited recruits and/or valued participants. Click here to see the 2018 Collaborative details.
In addition to our monthly and annual get-togethers, we also have a dedicated Facebook discussion group, where folks can pop in on a more frequent basis for conversation! Here collaborators can share ministry questions and get perspectives, link to an interesting article for discussion, talk about theological subjects, and more.
