The Vital Leadership team encourages ministry practitioners to integrate a way of learning and growing together using a methodology known as communities of practice (CoP). Simply it is a form of shared discipleship; meeting with others who are engaged in similar ministries so that each can share and, learn together, support each other with prayer, and grow together.
Communities of Practice can assist in building trust, competency, resilience and adaptivity in mission and ministry practice. This approach can be integrated into congregational team ministry, into zone or peer learning groups across presbyteries, or among informal networks across different ministry and mission practices. The Vital Leadership team can assist in helping establish these communities of practice in your context.
