MOVING BACK 2.0: THE WORK OF THE MISSIONAL CHURCH

May 30, 2011

Presbyterian Global Fellowship, in conjunction with the Presbytery of San Diego, and the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church invite you to attend a consultation called “Moving Back 2.0:  The Work of the Missional Church.”  It will be held August 19-20 at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church.

This consultation is designed for congregational leadership teams (pastors, staff, elders, other key leaders).  We will learn, discover, and plan together how to identify practical ways that your church members can make gospel connections with their communities.  Hands on resources will be provided for pastors and lay leaders to create experiments in missional life, which will be tailored to your context and to your people.

The consultation will be led by Alan Roxburgh and Mark Lau Branson.  Alan is the president of The Missional Network, and the author of the recent book Missional:  Joining God in the Neighborhood.  You can learn more about the ministry of The Missional Network at http://www.roxburghmissionalnet.com/.  Mark Lau Branson is the Associate Professor of the Ministry of the Laity at Fuller Seminary, and the co-author of the recent book Churches, Cultures, and Leadership:  A Practical Theology of Congregations and Ethnicities.

There will be a pre-conference seminar for pastors on Friday, August 19, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm on “Pastors as Missional Leaders”.  The cost for the pre-conference seminar is $25.  The consultation begins on Friday, August 19, from 5:00-8:00 pm, and continues on Saturday, April 20, from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.  The cost for the consultation is $75 per person, but the fifth person from each congregation comes for free.  You can register now at the Presbyterian Global Fellowship website at http://sendingout.com/events/.  Space is limited to the first 300 who register.  We hope to see you there!
