But this narrative of decline does not adequately describe the North American church. Yes, it is difficult, but God is also renewing communities of Christ across North America, sending us back into our neighborhoods to discover missional forms of church. Instead this school social worker and elder in her church walked outside with a bucket of chicken wings and offered to pray for the women with whom she shared the food.
How should the elder leading a new worshiping community in their local context receive more training? What would you tell the leader of a new monastic community committed to stability about where to receive more education? And they are doing hard work. As much as receiving education, these leaders need to take a retreat to restore their spiritual, mental, and physical health. What if they could find both in the same place? We need a new kind of formation for our post-Christendom world.
It needs to be theologically robust without being top-heavy.
And it needs to form church planters and other missional pioneers holistically while letting them remain in their existing ministry contexts. It needs a strong spiritual foundation that trains them to listen to the Holy Spirit and teaches them to care for their own souls. The Anglican missionary bishop and theologian John V. To do that well, you need to be well-practiced in praying, listening, and in risking naming what God is doing. Because all mission and ministry is contextual, the Church needs multiple models of formation and education for our changing ministry context.
How we form future leaders of the Church will inform the shape the Church takes in our context. Scott Hagley PhD. Lyssna fritt i 30 dagar!

But bucking that trend is Dunedin golfer Brent McEwan who has spent the best part of 10 years at the top of the tree in Otago. But being the best golfer in Otago over a long period of time does not come easy, as every year new challengers emerge.
Some are born and bred in Otago, while others come to town from elsewhere for various reasons, particularly to study at the local university. Campbell and Croudis had the potential to push for the No 1 spot had they not taken up scholarships in the United States. Croudis is playing college golf for Iowa State University while Campbell is now playing professionally on a third tier tour in the US. On a national level, McEwan has regularly figured highly. He is one of few Otago golfers to travel north seeking another level of competition.
His accurate driving ability and precise short game means he is consistently on the pace against the best in the country.

But the party for the local heroine was spoiled by Lee who shot the round or her life to score an amazing nine-under par. She beat Ko by one stroke.
Lee, 20, was eight shots from the lead when she began the final round and had not previously won as a professional. The final threesome of Ko and Americans Beth Allen and Anya Alvarez all had the chance to force a playoff on the 54th hole but Allen and Alvarez missed the green and Ko missed her birdie chance from 25 feet. Meanwhile Lee was on the practice putting green, preparing for a play-off when she was informed by her father that she was the New Zealand Open champion.
