Lutheran Pastor, the Rev. Emily Scott will be lecturing at Vancouver School of Theology this summer. In “Dreams and Schemes: Creativity, Innovation and Strategy for Church Planters and Renewers” Emily will share some of her experience and wisdom while exploring a six-part process of creation.  

Church planting and innovative worship and ministry are exciting components of our diocesan priorities, particularly:

  1. Our God is a relational God, and so we seek to foster, build and strengthen our relationships with one another in all we do in diocesan, parish and community circles
  2. Through the action of the Holy Spirit, our God creates the Church as Christ’s continuing presence in and for the world.

Emily Scott visited the Diocese of New Westminster for a learning party, March 10, 2018, and it was a great event. In order to encourage wider participation in this area of ministry, diocesan programming is offering up to 50% cash back for the first 10 persons within the diocese who wish to attend Emily Scott’s course. To redeem this offer just contact Tellison Glover by phone or email ([email protected] or 604-684-6306) and express your intention to attend.  

I look forward to hearing from you!

Now here are the details about the course:

Course Description

Dreams and Schemes: Creativity, Innovation, and Strategy for Church Planters and Renewers [PT527] with Emily Scott

Rooted in the instructor’s experience as a church planter, students will explore a theology of creation and develop skills applicable to any situation in which a new thing is coming into being: from a new ministry for an established congregation to a not-for-profit start-up; together, we will explore a six-part process of creation: void, hunger, vision, reality, identity, and growth.

Emily Scott was the founding pastor of St. Lydia’s Dinner Church in Brooklyn, NY and is currently stewarding a new church community in Baltimore that grows from the faith and witness of LGBTQ+ folks where congregants might encounter the fullness of God’s love for them.
