Vital+Thriving Congregations (V+T) is a ministry learning hub developed for the congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of California through a special partnership with Newbigin House of Studies. We’ve created a space where your congregation can join with others for support, to learn missional practices, and enter a process of collective discernment as we emerge from the pandemic. We’re committed to walking with you as you seek to discover your next steps. This will be a space for support, mutual learning as well as a pathway for seed funding as you discern your congregation’s unique missional challenge. We are inviting congregations go through a process called Partnership for the Missional Church, a multi-stage design thinking process of listening, reflecting, and discerning your distinctive story. We hope to develop congregations that are truer to the vision of Jesus, and along the way, to identify opportunities for new expressions of church.
