An Internship Experience in Partnership with Movement Leaders Collective

A community of movement leaders and a catalyst for movement leadership.

The Movement Leaders Collective provides a catalyst for movement leadership and a community for movement leaders across gender, geography, race & ethnicity. The mission of MLC is to identify, train, and empower 100 Jesus-movements & 1,000 Christlike leaders using the mDNA framework to become dynamic, innovative and generative movements able to shift the tracks of history.

Here's what to expect!

This six month online coaching experience is for selected reflective practitioners within a church/organization/denomination who are most likely and able to adapt quickly to the changed conditions and pioneer (explore new frontiers and innovative expressions) and articulate new forms (laying new pathways/tracks) for the organization to follow. By the end of the lab, participants will have a growing competency in:

  • Designing a movement framework

  • Catalyzing dynamic leadership environments

  • Facilitating dynamic learning environments

  • Creating organizational culture and communication

This internship journey is for movement-ready leaders

MA Missiology of Movements students receive 12 credit hours applied to their degree program. The Lab is also available for Movement Studies Certificate students.

The Forgotten Ways

Reactivating Apostolic Movements

Alan Hirsch's paradigm-shifting classic remains the definitive statement of the church as dynamic missional movement. The bestselling first edition ignited a conversation about how to harness the power of movements for the future growth of the church. In this major update, Hirsch shares significant insights gained along the way, provides fresh new examples of growing churches, and reflects on the last ten years of the missional movement. The new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout and includes charts, diagrams, an expanded glossary of terms, new appendices, an index, a new foreword by Ed Stetzer, and a new afterword by Jeff Vanderstelt.
