Co-Mission: Reframing Missional Discipleship

Several months ago while exploring the various aspects of the “business model canvas” I introduced Winebrenner’s efforts to develop a digital platform (you can read that post by clicking here).  As a follow-up, I’m excited to share that we are ready to announce Co-Mission!

In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing more about the purpose, scope, and potential of Co-Mission.  For today’s post I simply want to reflect upon the logo design we’re using and help you envision how this may serve you and your ministry.

The “Co” within the name emphasizes the collaborative nature of the platform and serves as an invitation for participation.  The full name is intended to evoke images of the “Great Commission” and Jesus’ words to “go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:18-20).  We are on mission together!

Co-Mission exists for the purpose of reframing the conversations about discipleship and theological education in the Church and Academy.  

The logo design represents an aerial view of two people facing each other with a “play button” between them. This also highlights the intersection of digital and human relationships.  While the framework is digital, the recordings that are uploaded will capture the human experiences of following Jesus into his mission field.

One of the questions you may have is “when can I have access to Co-Mission?”  As a first step, invitations have been sent to students at Winebrenner Theological Seminary.  We are uploading content and making sure the site is fully functional.  I will gladly demonstrate the site for you as you discern how your ministry or church could join Co-Mission.

Next week I’ll share more about the purpose and scope of this platform and how it will expand Winebrenner’s collaborative relationships in the future.  In the meantime, please let me know if you have questions or ideas for Co-Mission!
