Barefoot Church Primer: Online Study Group
by Brandon Hatmaker on August 26th, 2012

It's official... I'm going to be leading an online group this fall for leaders leading others through the Barefoot Church Primer. This will include an interactive daily blog and weekly leader video blog. Full details coming soon but we're targeting a September 24th starting date. In the meantime, let me know of your interest by listing your name, church, city, state, and any question or comment you might have in the comment section below.

Click HERE to learn more about what we'll cover in the 8 wk study by reading the "Hole in our Discipleship" BLOG.

Awesome Jeremy. Hey... also, I'll be in Wichita leading a workshop October 19-20. Just a heads up!

Thanks for joining us. There are two CRITICAL steps I need everyone to take:

(Step 1) Be sure to subscribe to the BLOG RSS feed so you’ll be sent any new posts and updates without me having to respond to each individual comment. Do so by clicking the orange button on the top right panel of my home page (under the SUBSCRIBE & FOLLOW label) and then simply follow the directions. You’ll know if you clicked the right one. Feel free to invite any of your group members to do the same. I’d love to get as much dialogue going as possible.

(Step 2) Please order your books (primers) as soon as possible. Everyone in your group needs one. It’s best not to share, even for couples because they will be journaling some. They are available at a discounted price at www.missiopublishing.com and come with an additional discount if you buy them by the box. There are 20 in a box and the discount is automatically calculated at checkout.

My recommendation is that you purchase the books for your groups then have them pay you back. That way you will make sure everyone has one in time (which is critical) and everyone has a little skin in the game. Please allow time for shipping.

Last thought: Since the “community” day for each week is on day 5, we will begin our reading on Saturday, September 22nd instead of Monday Sept 24th. That way the “community” day will land on Wednesday. I guess technically you could start behind a day and keep up with the action (if you meet on Thursdays), but you certainly don’t want to be ahead or you’ll miss out on any dialogue.

Hope that makes sense. I’m really looking forward to going through this with you guys as well as learning along the way!

Brandon Hatmaker - August 26th, 2012 at 9:07 PM
Ashley, I'd encourage you to at least find a couple people who might be interested in going through it with you (I think it would be a good church staff project). I think you'd find that super-beneficial and more enjoyable. Also, you'd want a little help on the project side of things. That said, I'm open to anything that might help others ;)

Thanks for joining us. There are two CRITICAL steps I need everyone to take:

(Step 1) Be sure to subscribe to the BLOG RSS feed so you’ll be sent any new posts and updates without me having to respond to each individual comment. Do so by clicking the orange button on the top right panel of my home page (under the SUBSCRIBE & FOLLOW label) and then simply follow the directions. You’ll know if you clicked the right one. Feel free to invite any of your group members to do the same. I’d love to get as much dialogue going as possible.

(Step 2) Please order your books (primers) as soon as possible. Everyone in your group needs one. It’s best not to share, even for couples because they will be journaling some. They are available at a discounted price at www.missiopublishing.com and come with an additional discount if you buy them by the box. There are 20 in a box and the discount is automatically calculated at checkout.

My recommendation is that you purchase the books for your groups then have them pay you back. That way you will make sure everyone has one in time (which is critical) and everyone has a little skin in the game. Please allow time for shipping.

Last thought: Since the “community” day for each week is on day 5, we will begin our reading on Saturday, September 22nd instead of Monday Sept 24th. That way the “community” day will land on Wednesday. I guess technically you could start behind a day and keep up with the action (if you meet on Thursdays), but you certainly don’t want to be ahead or you’ll miss out on any dialogue.

We are a rather organic church plant, near zero budget, and are adopting this is our objective for the next 90 days: Learn to serve the poor (and others) as a community of faith (team) - our entire church (30-50 people) - make this our primary operating agenda. We will use the Barefoot Primer as our primary equipping tool in this process. We will suspend our "regular" weekly worship gathering during this time, as a sign of our seriousness in reshaping our perspective around serving others, including the least of these.

Paul Pettefer - September 8th, 2012 at 9:03 AM
Brandon,

We were planning to start our entire church group (25-40) this week. I noticed that our group and leaders could all plan and pull off a worship gathering, but none could plan and pull off serving the poor. So, for 90 days, I want this goal for us: Learn to serve the poor (and neighbors) as a community of faith (team) %u2013 our entire church %u2013 make this our primary operating agenda.

So, we are going to place learning how to be a Missional Community as our primary activity, and suspend our weekly Worship Gatherings (will have one monthly) during this time.

QUESTION: we were going to start this Wednesday, and have our Community times on Sunday, but the daily reinforcement from you on the blog sounds SO helpful in bringing people along. QUESTION: CAN OUR PARTICIPANTS VIEW the discussion on the daily blog when you start? I'm now thinking of postponing our Primer start so we can catch the daily help from you.

What do you think?

P.S. I'm planning to be in Austin on Sept 20 for the Plantr Renewing the City Mini-Conference (my best bud lives in Round Rock, so it's a good excuse to go!). Hope to see you there!
Brandon Hatmaker - September 8th, 2012 at 9:26 AM
Absolutely your people can view the dialogue.. in fact, i'd love them to contribute. it will just be on this blog each day so encourage them to join us. I think the more contributing, the more we'll learn. Also, Glad you're going to postpone your start. I think it'd be okay to start later, but you'll certainly miss out starting earlier.
