Making deep change to lead the church toward God’s preferred future.
Journey Center for Learning at Western Theological Seminary is dedicated to empowering pastoral agents to follow Christ wholly and fully. In addition, we are equipping the Church’s leaders to guide her into mission in local neighborhoods, communities and around the world.
Intended for congregations committed to making deep change to reach God’s preferred future, Ridder Church Renewal is an intensive, two-year process that includes leadership development for pastors and a team of six lay leaders from their church.
“I would describe Ridder as a process of personal transformation that drives you to missional living, which then expands out into congregational life and congregational transformation.”
