Missouri School of Religion plans course on Christian education

The Missouri School of Religion will present a two-day course on Christian education on Dec. 10-11. The course will take place in Jefferson City, Mo., and be facilitated by Kim Gage Ryan, a Disciples minister, certified labyrinth facilitator, and trained spiritual director. The class will focus on the call of congregations and leaders to equip young and old in the development of their spiritual lives as individuals and in community.

Ryan has 25 years of congregational experience, with particular expertise in Christian education, hospitality and evangelism, team building with staff, ministerial colleagues, and congregational leaders. She will help participants look at their own experiences of growth and enrichment, and assist them to also consider scriptural encouragements, learning styles, rites of passage, small groups formulation techniques and spiritual gifts identification processes.
