Since 2004, leaders from 6-10 countries have met annually to learn from one another’s work in the field of Missional Church Development. Church Innovations was one of the three founding organizations of this group, along with Communitas (formerly BUVTON) of South Africa and MF School of Theology in Oslo, Norway. Other partners come The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The new generation of leaders of this group is convened by The Rev. Nigel Rooms Director of Ministry and Mission, Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, England. Church Innovations’ newest member is Dr. Kristine Stache of Wartburg Seminary, Waverly, Iowa.
