In order to practically pursue the fulfillment of the 1,2,3 Challenge and encourage, equip, and catalyze the work of church planting, we need to take the wisdom and leadership resources of the Province and get them as local as possible.
Beginning this fall, we're starting regional conferences where we can train, assess and build up our local congregations for the work of planting. Leaders like William Beasley (Greenhouse), Todd Hunter (C4SO), the A1K Team and others will be travelling to eight regional epicenters to gather, serve, and equip the people of our Province.
There will be tracks for church planter assessment, training and coaching as well as leadership development, congregational development, youth ministry, campus ministry, global mission, and more.
The sites will be:
Seattle, WA Aug. 5-10
Boston, MA Sept. 16-21
Houston, TX Oct. 7-12
Phoenix. AZ Jan. 13-18, 2014
Atlanta, GA Feb 10-15, 2014
Chicago, Il March 10-15, 2014
Toronto, Canada May 20-24, 2014
Specific location sites and registration details to come soon.
