Missio Alliance

Just in case you haven’t heard, we are a part of a new coalition of church leaders called Missio Alliance, and our first conference will be next April 11-13 in Alexandria VA. Here is a link to the presenters, schedule and costs. I encourage pastors and leaders to consider this opportunity to hear expositions of Scripture, network with others, learn and fellowship.

Link to brochure.

What’s it about?

Exploring the shape of a missional encounter with this new context calls for asking fresh questions and engaging in dialogue about topics as fundamental as the gospel,humanityScripturethe Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God; all framed around the role of the Church in relationship to God’s mission in the world.

For this inaugural conference, we’ve invited a diverse and compelling group ofpractitionerstheologians, and missiologists to speak and facilitate dialogue around these and a wide array of related issues.

This conference is just the beginning of what we hope to see God do through the Missio Alliance in years to come. We look forward to joining with all fellow travelers!

    This looks fascinating – and is a needed step. Looks like a great group of people.

    You’ve picked the bottom part of the description and neglected the intro:

    North America has become a mission field.

    In large parts of our culture, Christianity now exists at the margins and is met with a sense of antagonism amidst the growth of religious pluralism.

    I am not sure how to go about it – but meetings like this, bringing together people who really want to address the issues, would do well to involve some Christians who are not church professionals.

    How is this different from Origins? What is the status of Origins?

    I will be there! So happy it is in my backyard and that you have Don Coleman representing the good work going on in our great city of Richmond.

    I wonder if Alan Hirsch’s 5-fold proposal will be a part of the proceedings.
