The Praxis Conference is going to be awesome! May 15, 2014

I’m going to The Praxis Conference. This could be one of the most interesting events that I’ve been a part of. Check out why they exist:

The Praxis Conference is a collaboration of academics, artists, and authors focused on reclaiming the historical church’s priority on liturgy, art and sacred space into the modern day evangelical context.

Our church, Pangea Communities, fits this description in many ways. We care about narrating the historical story of God through liturgy. We do all we can to make our worship space, sacred. And as we move forward, we desire to utilize the arts as an expression of God’s own creativity.

I’m excited to be there to join in conversation with many folks who are like-minded. Many of the speakers are “web-friends” so I’m also pumped to meet them in person!

With that said, here’ s how to sign up.

Wrap-up Session Round Table

In recent years independent evangelical churches around the world have exhibited a renewed interest in resourcing the historical Tradition of the early church. Little did they know other communities and leaders were feeling the same impulse. Join us as we explore the implications of inculcating these historical practices within the modern evangelical/charismatic context.


THE EVENT

The Praxis Conference is an event designed to explore, collaborate, and discover how using the ancient practices of the historical church such as communion, creeds, and common prayer can actually manifest encounters with the Holy Spirit and resurrection in our local church communities.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

  • Music from The Brilliance
  • Opportunities to network and connect with other pastors, theologians, authors, and academics
  • Several angles on how resourcing Tradition in your local community of believers can manifest resurrection
  • An apologetic for the practice of resourcing Tradition
  • A better understanding of the nuts and bolts of resourcing Tradition within the Evangelical milieu
  • An opportunity to see firsthand what resourcing Tradition looks like within the context of a local church community
