An Edgey Conversation about Innovation

An Edgey Conversation about Innovation

Last month Scott and Marcie from the Centre for Christian Studies sat down with Sarah Levis from the Growth Unit at the United Church of Canada for an EDGEy conversation. EDGE is a UCC network for new ministry development, and Sarah has been hosting a series of conversations online about innovative ministry. Because of CCS’s work in preparing people for ministry in a variety of contexts, Sarah wanted to know how CCS approaches innovation.

Some of the topics we covered in our conversation:

  • 0:00 – Welcome and introductions

  • 5:25 – Honouring a history of innovation
  • 7:30 – Innovation as intentional process

  • 15:30 – Normalizing transformation
  • 18:00 – CCS students and graduates as innovators
  • 21:00 – The breadth of ministry
  • 23:30 – CCS has something for you
