Connection Blueprint is an innovative hands-on practical learning process designed to help congregations maximize the impact of Jesus’ redemptive and healing love in neighborhoods and congregations. It builds on the foundational value that developing relationships of mutuality with our neighbors will change communities and congregations. This 12-18 month journey gathers congregational teams of lay and clergy leaders from across the conference into a dynamic learning community. Together, they learn and practice tools designed to assist each congregation to implement transformative ministry within their unique context, thereby allowing them to realize the dreams God has given them. The Rev. John Edgar provides the primary leadership throughout the learning process.
