Mark's Speaking Schedule
3 - 4
Mennonite Church USA Convention Phoenix
Mark will be leading two 2-hour Learning Experiences based on his work, Practicing the Way of Jesus. 1 P.m. on Wednesday July 3 and 8 a.m. on Thursday July 4. Practical devotion, activism and service are distinctives of Mennonite heritage. But how can we live into these values amidst 21st-century complexities? Too often our methods of spiritual formation become individualistic, information driven or disconnected from everyday life. Perhaps what we need is a Jesus Dojo—participatory learning spaces that are more like a karate studio than a college lecture hall! This two-hour workshop will explore how we can renew our active practice of the way of Jesus through risk-taking and collective group experiments. Participants will be invited to launch their own experiments following the workshop.

Fuller Doctor of Ministry Course on Practicing the Way of Jesus
This doctoral level course, taught by Mark Scandrette and Dr. Daniel Kirk, is a guided exploration of Jesus’ embodiment and teaching of the Kingdom of God and practices by which Jesus’ actions and teachings might be emulated and obeyed in our postmodern contexts. This course will help you (1) articulate a holistic understanding of the Kingdom of God as learned from Jesus’ actions and teaching; (2) delineate various practices that faithfully embody and/or manifest the reign of God in their current contexts; and (3) design, implement, and assess a learning lab that seeks to draw practitioners into the life commended by Jesus.
