If you are planning on attending the Exponential conference in Orlando this April be sure to join us for the Forge Missional Pre-conference on Monday and Tuesday.
Creating a Missional Sending Culture to Every Neighborhood and Network
Now that America has become a mission context, churches are beginning to recognize that the need is not for more and better programs, presentations or preaching; instead a mission field needs missionaries. The church needs to equip and activate everyday people who know how to engage their context with the gospel, form missionary communities, and re-orient their lives around kingdom values and behaviors. In this Preconference, the Forge team (Alan and Deb Hirsch, Hugh Halter, Ryan Hairston and Brad Brisco) will help you move from missional inspiration to practical, missional apprenticeship. We will discuss:
The Missionary Nature of Church
“Deconsumerizing” & Decentralizing the Saints
Moving Small Groups to Missionary Communities
Activating ALL the People of God
Synergizing the Gathered and Scattered Structures
