How do I demonstrate Competency 2? “Rediscover the Antioch tradition of the Early Church, which lasted over five centuries, and design a model for how to build this tradition back into our churches, as we seek to have similar impact globally for the expansion of the gospel in the 21st century.”
- You may use any evidence you have to demonstrate this or any competency.
- It is key to recognize that this competency has two parts. Both parts are often addressed through a combination of you work for Unit 4, Issue 1, Project 1 and Unit 4, Issue 2, Project 1. The first project has you look at the Antioch tradition. Make sure you describe not only the New Testament picture of the first century but also the elements of the Antioch tradition that developed over the next four centuries. The second project asks you to think about how the elements of the early church tradition that could be built into a contemporary model. “Rediscovering the Antioch Tradition” in the Project Guides provides an example that could be expanded upon.
