Our new Global Missional Leadership learning community that I am leading for George Fox Seminary, kicks off September 1st.
You can follow along online, or meet up with us in person, with all the reading, lectures/teaching and conversations from the programme being made available online. You can help us discover and tell a big missional story.
*** If this new learning community grabs your attention and interest, please do help us spread the word through your Twitter, Facebook, and blog networks. Do add the tag #dmingml to you posts/tweets so we can track them, thanks.
