About the Topic

80% of the US population is not in church on Sunday. Summer is a great time to get outside the walls of the church to find out where these people really are. As church leaders, the world often knows us for what we say. What benefit might it be for others to know us by how well we listen? Using Paul’s missionary posture of strategic listening, cultural exegesis and question-asking in the book of Acts, we’ll learn to develop a missional ear. We’ll spend time exploring how we listen to the Spirit, our context and our people, as well as how we might teach people in our churches to do the same.
