UrbanRevs

Training followers of Jesus in the urban space to be intentional, authentic and effective

Welcome to UrbanRevs online training! We live in an ever complex and challenging world. Many followers of Jesus and faith leaders are passionately seeking out the ‘how to’ when it comes to seeing Jesus’ kingdom come. At UrbanRevs we are passionate about helping the local church grow every follower of Jesus to be authentic and effective when it comes to living out the kingdom. Whether you’re a protagonist passionate about leading change in local communities or a campaigner stirred in a mission to make grace immanent – UrbanRevs will inspire you to genuine influence.

I have been impacted and inspired by the urban model of Chaplaincy Training that Cam Butler has developed and designed over many years. It has been field-tested and has proven to be an effective redemptive tool to reach people with the love and mercy of Jesus where they are. We have adopted the Urban Chaplaincy model as the training tool to equip our community chaplains. I highly recommend Urban Revs training as an effective tool to reach people in public spaces with the good news of Jesus.

Community Chaplaincy Overview

Many people incorrectly disqualify themselves when it comes to serving Jesus in the world they live in. Either, they think themselves not qualified, not suitable, or not authorised. They might say, “That’s not my role…” or “I don’t know how to…” or “I’ll wait for my church to lead the way…” Meanwhile, God’s kingdom and will coming to our community is subsequently disadvantaged.  Who the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are and your relationship with God.

This course is an introduction to the UrbanRevs Community Chaplaincy training. It is for those who want to become a Community Chaplain. It provides the biblical foundation for the Urban Revs Community Chaplaincy model. It is the introduction to the Level 2 Urban Chaplaincy Certificate.

Who is Community Chaplaincy for

  • UrbanRevs is for every authentic follower of Jesus.
  • It’s for people who want to be effective chaplains. Recognised or, unrecognised.
  • It is both a paradigm and a lifestyle wrapped in a simple set of training modules for everybody who eagerly desires to live out the kingdom of God powerfully and effectively in their workplace, their school, club, community, and business. Those who want to understand God, humanity, their place in the world and how it all works together.
  • In fact, UrbanFevs sees every follower of Jesus as a type of urban chaplain! A community ‘God-person’ – taking responsibility to shepherd their community towards Jesus.

What you will learn

  • You will learn how to take responsibility for your community, to be heart-ready, to listen for meaning, and grow in confidence to pray for and with people effectively. You will learn ‘how to’ invite someone to respond to Jesus.
  • You will learn ‘what to say’, when to declare God’s truth, how to speak to the heart and mind of a person.
  • Finally, you will learn about the pitfalls of serving Jesus in the community – and what to avoid and what to focus on. You will begin to deeply appreciate the 18 guiding principles of community influence that every follower of Jesus and urban chaplain should know for effective ministry and living.

Community Chaplaincy is a great resource for those considering entering into this ministry. It outlines many aspects that are required to become and develop to be an effective Chaplain.

Having five years of experience as a prison chaplain, this short course covers multiple aspects of what is required to become an effective chaplain. Cam clearly has the experience and is quite open and honest about his mistakes and the challenges surrounding chaplaincy and unequivocally is someone who should be listened to. Highly recommend this material for anyone considering entering any form of chaplaincy and would encourage financial support of this amazing front line ministry.

This course kept me engaged and wanting to learn more. I felt that some of the Biblical exegesis was inadequate, but maybe this is unavoidable in an introductory course.

I was so encouraged and empowered. I loved the teaching – it was simple to follow and great insight about the role of BEING PRESENT and more. Loved it…
