Mosaic Institute is a conference-based, Anabaptist school of leadership for newly credentialed leaders, experienced pastors, Conference Related Ministry leaders, and lay leaders in Mosaic congregations and beyond.
- To foster relationships within Mosaic Conference.
- To provide orientation for newly credentialed leaders and leaders who come to us from other traditions.
- To help people grow into our conference priorities of being missional, intercultural, and formational.
- To encourage the growth of leadership, skills, and theological formation for our lay leaders and pastors without seminary education.
Introduction to Mosaic Conference
This November begins a series of Preaching & Teaching Mini-Courses through the Mosaic Institute. Each mini-course weekend will include a Saturday of workshops taught by a team of Mosaic pastors followed by a Sunday “lab” at a SE Pennsylvania church. These mini-courses are a great opportunity for new pastors or lay leaders to build skills in preaching or teaching or for experienced pastors and leaders to expand their toolkits. Take one or all! Each mini-course costs $100; scholarships are available. Registration opens next week (talk with your leadership minister if you need help arranging for pulpit fill for these weekends).
The first step in preparing to preach or teach is to know the context of the people you are teaching. How do we learn about those in our “audience” and how do we connect the Scripture to their contexts? This mini-course sets the foundation for shaping both the content and the format of a sermon or lesson.
