Complete Synopsis                                                                Prerequisites: None

Many leaders have taught their congregations how to have church and have spent less time teaching the people how to be the church – a living body and temple for God to dwell in. What is the role of the church today? How does this role extend beyond the four walls of a building? We live the majority of our lives outside of a church building and yet, most believers have no clue how to bring the supernatural power of God into their time outside of a church building. What’s wrong with this picture? This combines articles lectures, coaching labs, and online discussion forums to give the doctoral student an opportunity to advance his/her practice and mindset to shift from thinking of the church as a physical building to seeing the church as a living body, and thus a container for God’s glory to impact world systems, particularly, business systems.
