Workshop Session 2: The Missional Quest: Shifting an Existing Congregation in a Missional Direction
Before talking about the how of missional living, it is important to discuss the why. In this breakout Brad Brisco and Lance Ford will survey the theological foundations that set the stage for the church to move in a missional direction. Without a clear understanding of certain foundations, any change a church attempts to make will simply not be sustainable. Topics will include the missionary nature of the church, incarnational mission, participation in the missio Dei, and practical first steps of implementing change.
Time: Wednesday, 8:45 – 9:45am
Location: Student Center - Room 128

Workshop Session 3: Starting a Neighboring Movement Through Your Church
Jesus said the entire law of God is summed up and fulfilled when we love God and our neighbor as we love ourselves. Imagine cities across a nation, sprinkled with Christ followers living in condos, houses, and apartment buildings, who have taken Jesus' words to heart. They have committed to tangibly love their neighbors and neighborhoods as they love themselves. They have committed to be the salt of the earth as Jesus said we are to be. What does it look like when we view our neighborhoods as the place in which the Lord has placed us ... to serve him, and accomplish his purposes?
