New Parish Learning Communities are for people who want to see their congregation or missional group become a compelling expression of love and care in, with, and for the neighborhood.

You know that deep change is not easy, and you are looking for a powerful culture-shifting approach that grabs hold of hearts, awakens core desires, and sparks collective imagination.

Parish Collective has partnered with the United Methodist Church in Oregon, Idaho, and all throughout the Pacific Northwest to create this transformative 90 Day learning experience that crosses denominational lines and pollinates learning from urban, suburban, and rural expressions.


What To Expect
Over the course of the 3 months, participants will meet for three Culture Labs (these are intensives that begin on a Thursday evening and ends early Saturday afternoon) with peer support, course readings, and field experiments in between.

Teams and individuals discern and implement intentional steps toward growing presence, working as a team, and collaborating with others in their context. Each participant is welcomed into an ongoing peer learning collective upon completion of the learning community.
