PRE-CONFERENCE: Embracing Disruption - Repurpose Your Church to Redeem Your Community – Hosted by Mosaix
An increasingly diverse and cynical society will no longer find credible the mere explanation of theological truth apart from effective community engagement. Advancing the common good, then, and thus the very Gospel, itself, must involve more than mere words, and the building of large congregations filled with people of a similar race, class, or cultural background. In this present future, our common confession must be validated by concrete action and accompanying measurable results along spiritual, social and economic fronts. Indeed this is the expectation of Christ in Matthew 5:16 and of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:10. Whether you're the pastor of an existing church or soon-to-be church planter, don't miss this first ever presentation designed to help you advance disruption innovation, effective community engagement, and maximize your church's influence in the community. More detail here.
Day / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30am
