The Neighbor Way.png


cultivating a life of experiential neighboring.


Every church has felt the pressure, sometimes described as "the call," to fix and save the communities they serve. Where fixing and saving is the central drive for ministry, the church is at risk for making programmatic decisions that either dominate or disengage the communities within which we are called to connect. The expansion of the missional imagination within the local church requires intentional learning and activation of empowerment principles and practices.


We're grateful for the growing collective of clergy and laity who are committed to a life of experiential neighboring. Together we're inviting others into immersive learning opportunities at the intersection of mission, leadership, justice, and holistic personal transformation.
