300 Leaders: The Urban Initiative – 11th April 9:30am to 3pm
Our Spring 300 Leadership conference is “The Urban Initiative” with guest speakers Dr. Tony Evans and Andy Frost.
This Spring, our 300 Leadership Conference will be on April 11th 2015 from 9:30am to 3pm.
Cities are full of people and people matter to God. The message that Jeremiah brought to God’s people in exile remains relevant for us today:
Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; … seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. ( Jeremiah 29:5-7)
Our call is not to do occasional social action events to the city but to love the city by: dwelling in the city, praying for the peace of the city and seeking the welfare of the city.
This 300 conference will focus on the importance of effective urban ministry.
· How does a pastor help people cultivate a heart for the City?
· How does a pastor help people see their jobs as ministry to the City?
· How does a church develop coherent programs that practically and efficiently reach out to its community within its resources?
These and other issues are things we will be teaching and learning about in the next 300 conference. We encourage you to bring your whole leadership team.
