Lay Mobilization Institute

Welcome to the Lay Mobilization Institute!  The Lay Mobilization Institute, open to both pastors and church members, mobilizes you and your church as disciple-making disciples in ministry and mission in order to change the world around you.  It consists of a four-part series for pastors and lay leaders in a retreat-like setting with high-impact worship, biblical and theological reflection, and practical strategy sessions.  When the retreat/consultation portion ends, the congregational work begins.  You will receive a congregation transformation coach to help wade into the spiritual depths Christ has for you and your church both personally and corporately.  In monthly coaching sessions, you will turn obstacles into the opportunities to which God may be calling you.

Experiential learning is central to every Institute offered through Asbury Theological Seminary.  In this Institute, you will learn about topics such as:

  • Identity and Team
  • Context: Current Reality
  • Focus: Values, Mission, and Vision
  • Systems for Disciple-Making
  • Transformation and Multiplication
