Publisher's Description

For generations most churchgoers have been encouraged to see the responsibility for the life and mission of the church in the hands of the trained clergy. A church embracing God's call to mission requires these same worshippers to see themselves as 'missionary disciples' with a vital part to play in the church's ministry. How is a change of this magnitude to be accomplished?

Drawing on the discipline of adult education and his own research into the way people learn, David Heywood explains how churches can become learning communities in which people grow as disciples and find their place in a collaborative pattern of ministry.

He challenges the prevailing approach to ministerial training as overly theoretical and individualistic, and points towards a model of training based around shared reflection on practice.

Contents:

Editorial Reviews

Kingdom Learning is a significant and lively resource for learning and teaching in the local church and in preparation for all kinds of ministry and mission. David Heywood is one of the Church of England's most distinctive and engaging writers on Christian formation. I warmly commend his new book.
This timely and carefully prepared book makes a major contribution to the practice of discipleship and ministry by all God's people. We have forgotten the value and importance of the corporate and communal approach to mission and ministry. By placing theological reflection at the heart of a renewed approach to adult education for lay and ordained alike, David Heywood explores how this technique can enable and equip people for whole life mission and ministry. Treading a careful path between theory and a how-to guide, this book addresses an urgent need for a fundamental re-evaluation of the approach that we all take to participation in discipleship, ministry and mission.
Kingdom Learning provides a fresh and challenging assessment of how, as Christian disciples, we approach the important subject of our own learning and development. David Heywood offers a model of reflective learning lived out in the life of the local church and encourages us to engage with this in our own lives as disciples, ministers and servants of the gospel. It is practical, insightful and encouraging and is appropriate for anyone who wishes to renew their own faith and ministry.
