Don’t Just Take Our Word For It..

This course is a catalyst for personal transformation, shifting culture wherever you go and transforming the communities where you exist. When Kingdom Values shape the culture of a group or place, people flourish and mission becomes natural; whether you’re a youth worker/mentor, church leader, community member, parent or young person that’s what the course sets you up for. Here’s what others have to say about it:

Dr. David Williams, Ph.D, President of Taylor College & Seminary, Canada. “Foundations offers students real life skills not only for personal transformation but also for community transformation. Anyone interested in making an impact for the Kingdom should seriously consider participating in the course.”

Chris, Reading: “A good guide on how to further your relationship with God. Eye opening.”

Hannah, Leyland: “It is a great wake-up call that challenges and encourages your thinking. I went away feeling really excited about life and what God has in store for me.”

Rev. Cesar Mendoza, London: “It is a practical and valuable course for every Christian with a serious commitment to growth toward spiritual maturity.”

Keith, Witham: “Amazing! Learned so much about myself… and how to use my Bible!”

Rev. Leon Collyer, Reading: “Transformational. You get to learn new things but also how to join them together and begin to live them out. A great balance of theory, prayer, and practice.”

Lynne, Aylesbury: “Helped re-fresh and redirect me after a difficult year.”

Bible College Lecturer: “I’ve been to many seminars in my life, and the training this week would be the best I’ve ever experienced.”

Vice-president of Taylor College and Seminary, Dr. Terry Fossen, Ph.D: “After more than 30 years of ministry through the church as well as the academy, it is both refreshing and challenging to re-discover that our Lord is not finished with me, yet. [As a Foundations trainer, I have become] excited, anew, about what is about to unfold in the lives of students and facilitator alike in [future] Foundations courses.”

How the Course is Delivered..

The course is delivered using a combination of talks, discussions and practical sessions, role plays and activities, all finally culminating in a community outreach event.

There are often three streams: a youth stream, a ministry and leadership stream and a stream for the rest of us!

Foundations for Personal, Community and Cultural Transformation is for young and old, both new and seasoned Christians, as well as new and seasoned leaders. It’s for academics and practitioners, and for ANYONE wanting to deepen their understanding and experience of the Christian faith.

For many years Fusion International and Shift Youth + Community have used it to develop their own youth workers and leaders, to perpetuate a culture of discipleship and mission, to facilitate authentic fellowship, and to help establish people of all ages in their faith. The course can be delivered as a one week intensive or one weekend a month over four months.

If you are interested in hosting a course for your staff, church, church leadership or others you work with, please let us know.

What’s Covered on the Course..

The content of the course follows three themes Discipleship, Living as a Community of Believers, and Transformational Mission.

Discipleship – we are called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. We explore what this might look like in every day life, learning skills and developing awareness that will help us grow in our discipleship – how ever long we we have been on the journey for.

Living as a Community of Believers – it is by our love for one another that people will know that we are disciples of Jesus – We ask; what are the implications of this statement by Jesus’ and what does it look like to love others well?

Transformational Mission – we are called to seek first God’s Kingdom, to work and pray for the Shalom of the place where we are, and to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. We explore what our communities, nations and society might look like when we actively demonstrate God’s gracious rule and reign in our day to day lives, ministry and work. We look at strategies we can use to be intentional about all of this.

Another way of describing the content is using three streams – Living with God, Living with Others and Living with Yourself. All 35 units on the course fall into one or more of these streams (which can also be categorised as Applied Theology, Sociology for Life and Mission, and Psychology of Discipleship).

Annual Benefit Dinner @ Tylney Hall Hotel and Gardens
Mar 28 @ 7:00 pm

We are pleased to be hosting our inaugural Benefit Dinner at Tylney Hall Hotel and Gardens and we extend a warm welcome to you to join us.

We are looking forward to a wonderful evening of pleasant company in beautiful surroundings hearing inspiring stories of transformation and hope for the future.

SYC Inaugural Annual Benefit Dinner

Imagine a nation of hope-filled teens rooted in thriving communities! There’s a new thing happening; have you seen it? Come, join the journey and together help make it happen.

SYC is all about living our best life, the way God intended.

By instilling the values of Gods Kingdom into our communities and working with our youth who are at the very heart of our communities, we believe we can transform society for the better.

Life for a teenager living in the 21st century is chaotic, stressful and often terrifying; in order to change this we need to shift the culture within which they exist. As the leaders of tomorrow, we want our youth to thrive and prosper by finding hope and a purpose.

Our strategic approach to change has seen four communities in the U.K. start to flourish, as we have worked with young people, their schools, families and community.

In Christ, we are of one mind and one body and we must work together to achieve all that is on Gods heart to do  with our teens and in the communities of this nation. 

Our Inaugural Annual Benefit Dinner is the start of a new thing and we are delighted you are joining us on this journey.

Date: Saturday, 28 March 2020

Time: 7pm drinks with proceedings starting at 7.30pm

Summer Mission Intensive
Jul 4 @ 1:00 pm – Jul 15 @ 1:00 pm

The Northumberland Ave Street Party of 2012 (Whitley, South Reading)

Come join the Shift Youth + Community team as we spend a week partnering with local Christians in mission and shifting culture together. You will be part of building a legacy of openness to the gospel in a community that includes some of the poorest areas in the South East of England.

Each year for more than 10 years the South Reading Churches have put on a Summer Fun Day for their community which is attended these days by 4-6000 people out of the 12-15000 population. We invite you to join our team for this year’s South Reading Churches Fun Day on the 11th of July 2020.

Fun Days are part of South Reading Churches’ strategy for community engagement and in South Reading they have helped the churches build credibility and favour with the community; as a result the community is remarkably open to the gospel in word and action. Out of the Fun Days and community research SYC and the local churches have put together a joint mission strategy for reaching the teenagers in the area and the families of young children.

We invite you to come and participate in this ongoing, incredible story.

As part of this week of Mission we take in a visit to London where we will explore some of the stories of ordinary Christians (now the Heroes of our Faith) who changed the course of British history as they obeyed the call of God on their lives and transformed the culture and society of their day.

 

Fees cover all costs of the mission intensive including meals and travel on the London Day Trip. There are two options:

Option One: Full board, billeted accommodation included: £430

Option Two: No accommodation or breakfast provided. All other mission intensive costs included: £260
