WHAT DOES NEW PEOPLE NEW PLACES MEAN?
It means that we are equipping United Methodists to go out into physical and digital spaces and to meet new people in new places to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them through ongoing relationships.
WHAT IS THIS?
It's a yearlong experience that includes live webinar training, independent team learning of 17 modules at your own pace, and an ongoing cohort/incubator group to help you set goals and encourage you in this process.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Ideally, teams of at least two laity (possibly with a clergy partner) who want to start a Fresh Expression that emphasizes discipleship and multiplication into a network.
WHO IS LEADING IT?
Michael Moynagh, Michael Beck, with moderation by Rachel Gilmore and Baranda Fermin.
WHEN DOES IT START?
The official training will happen in a two-hour webinar session on Saturday, February 27 at 1 p.m. CDT.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
If your annual conference is an official partner with New People New Places, then there is no cost to you. Otherwise, the cost is $300 per team for the year.
IS THIS ONLY FOR UNITED METHODISTS?
No! While we are approaching this from a Wesleyan lens, it is open to anyone who wants to learn innovative ways to share the gospel and reach new people in new places!
