The Made to Flourish Twin Cities Regional Network meets regularly for meals and training events to learn from each other and from some of the country’s leading thinkers on integrating faith, work, and economics for ministry that produces human flourishing.
We generally gather in a monthly to bi-monthly rhythm in locations throughout the Twin Cities Metro. A number of our events are done in partnership with Bethel Seminary’s Work With Purpose initiative and the University of Minnesota’s MacLaurinCSF.
At our pastors’ luncheon “More than Semantics: Pastoring with the Whole of Life in Mind,” we considered how the language we use implicitly and explicitly shapes the way our congregations think about work.
Here are the notes from our discussion and small group work: More Than Semantics Discussion Notes.
At last month’s pastors’ luncheon, several pastors highlighted whole-life discipleship teaching tools we use in our churches. Here is a summary document prepared by Bethel Seminary Work with Purpose Church Ambassador, Tedi Anne Hasapopoulos.
