Porterbrook Missional Training launching at Kaleo

The Porterbrook Network is a developing initiative aimed at contributing to a wider church planting movement by equipping individuals and churches to rediscover mission as their DNA through training, and resourcing.

Kaleo is launching the program to students in the Southern California area.

Porterbrook: San Diego

The course is delivered through distance learning with an introductory day and 3 residential weekends throughout the year. It will require about 5 hours study each week. The full course is over two years, comprising a foundation year and advanced year. Students can join either year or both years depending on their needs and circumstances. The advanced year is for people who have had some previous theological training or experience of church leadership or have completed the foundation year.

There will be assignments to prepare for each residential weekend, either in the form of a short presentation or as a written assignment with notes for discussion. The aim is to help students keep on track, apply their learning to their context, and learn from other students who are applying the material to their church and context.
We require each student to have the support of their local church, and where possible, would look for some level of involvement from the church leader(s).

Dates 2010 – 2011
Introductory day 25th September 2010
Winter residential 3rd – 5th December 2010
Spring residential 25th – 27th March 2011
Summer residential 8th – 10th July 2011

Fees: $1,250 per year, which includes a CD of the materials, and accommodation and catering for residentials.

Echo Church Media Conference

I’ll be returning to the Echo Church Media Conference this year to present.

A Look into the Near & Distant Future of Online Ministry – In this session learn what is next on the horizon and how this impacts the local church. This session is designed for strategic leaders regardless of their technological level of understanding.

Church Web Stories: Learning from others’ successes and struggles – In this session you will get behind the scene access to the real world results of several church web strategies. We’ll look at the church website, social media involvement, mobile, content creation and more to see what is really happening. How effective are they? How much time and energy is required to implement their plans? What are the best practices or common mistakes a church makes? This valuable session will equip you with practical insight, best practices & strategies that your church can implement whether you are an online expert or a beginner.

Join us July 28-30, 2010 in Dallas, TX.

Goodmanson.com Reboot

I’ve had the chance to update the blog with a brand new design, upgrade from WordPress 2.x to 3.0 and move from MySQL 4.x to 5.0. While these add to the reboot, more importantly I plan to write a new set of blog posts exploring a few ideas from a review of Friendship at the Margins, some thoughts on dialogical preaching, GCM (gospel, community, mission) updates as well as research and discovery we’ve been doing on church website strategies.

Thanks for you patience with my lack of postings, here’s to a solid second half of 2010 of writing…
