P 148 Context-based Learning for Discipleship and Ministry: Introducing the PC3 Approach (2017)


Whether lay or ordained, old or young, new believers or experienced leaders, the way we learn for discipleship and ministry can be enhanced by emulating the ‘training’ the disciples underwent at the side of Jesus, the ultimate teacher.

This illuminating guide explains how the PC³ pathway—based on participation, classroom, context and community—mirrors the learning experience of the first disciples, and can have lasting and tangible benefits for ministry students, youth workers, lay Christians, churches and wider communities.
