If you are attending the Exponential conference in Orlando this April come by and say hello, either at the Forge Missional pre-conference or at one of the following workshops.
BIVO REALITY: Starting a Church Without a Dime – A Doable and Enjoyable BiVO Lifestyle
Whether you are a marketplace leader looking for help in leveraging your kingdom calling, or you are a ministry leader looking for creative ways to manage and fund your calling, this workshop is for you. The Gospel got to us by fully paid, barely paid, or non-paid saints and the future will be bright for those who learn to leverage all they have for one calling. Hugh and Brad will discuss the benefits of Bivo church planting and give practical steps towards creating and sustaining a Bivocational movement.
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 and Lance 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.
