Missio Madison: Cohort for Missional Practioners

I'm excited to announce this project that has been in the works for more than a year! 

Missio Madison is an incubator and cohort for local missional practioners. We exist to provide a community in which followers of Jesus can collaboratively exegete Madison and discern God's call into fresh forms of Christian community and mission.  Launching in January 2020, the Missio Madison cohort will gather monthly on the fourth Friday (noon-4pm) through April for training and conversation. Participants will also meet monthly with a coach and two other participants to lean in to their growing edges. In addition, the cohort will experience an overnight retreat for spiritual renewal and discernment (March 23-24, 2020).

Missio Madison participants will:
  • cultivate sustaining friendships among peers in local ministry and mission
  • build relationships with coaches and context experts
  • discover fresh practices of prayer and dwelling in scripture
  • form habits of deep engagement in and reflection on Madison as a mission context
  • encounter a range of missional models and examples to fuel creativity and innovation
  • foster an ecclesial environment of ecumenical friendship and partnership
  • identify and develop the skills needed for leading new missional initiatives

Missio Madison is made possible by the generous support of the Lilly Endowment and is an initiative of University of Dubuque Theological Seminary.
Applications for the 2020 Spring beta cohort are due November 22, 2019.
