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.”
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.
