MissionShift Conference

I’m excited to be a part of the MissionShift Conference July 12-15 for alot of reasons, not the least of which hearing guys like Alan Hirsch, Matt Chandler, JD Greear, and Ed Stetzer speak.

But the biggest reason I’m excited to be leading a workshop there is because of the subject matter of the conference. There is a buzz word in Christian circles right now – “missional.” Everyone wants to be missional. Missional individuals, missional churches, missional communities – you name it.

But as is often the case when a word catches on, there seems to be alot of confusion about what this word actually means. Is it evangelism? Is it social justice issues? How do those things fit together? And am I supposed to be moving to subSaharan Africa to do it?

That’s what the focus of the conference is about. It’s about defining what we mean as believers in Jesus when we talk about being “missional.”

Got any plans for a summer conference? I think this one will be worth your time.

They’re running all kinds of specials right now, including some book giveaways for those who register today.

Check it out. Hope to see you there.

    Michael, the link says it’s not found. Any other ideas?

    Oh! And is this geared for youth?

  • Michael K. says:

    Sorry about that. Links should be fixed.

    While it’s not geared specifically toward youth, I think it would be valuable to be there just from the perspective of having a firm understanding of the principles that inform youth ministry. Some of the breakout times might be geared specifically toward youth; I know the one I’m teaching is geared specifically toward ministers of young adults.
