Fresh Expressions PRE-CONFERENCE @ Exponential 2022 in Orlando!
Join us at a Pre-Conference Workshop entitled: "Fresh Expressions: Multiplication, Multi-site, and Missional Vitality for Everyday Christians" on Monday, March 7, 2022 , 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. and Tuesday, March 8, 2022, 8:00 - 11:30 a.m.
This pre-conference workshop will include the following:
The realities of the last two years have thrust the church into a new era. The challenge before us is not only to rebuild but to build anew. For the foreseeable future we need a way of being church that is flexible in form, timely in context, rooted in depth, and scalable in resource. This is the call for a new kind of local church.
For nearly two decades the fresh expressions movement has been helping existing churches and institutions find new forms of life that put the church Jesus loves closer to where the people Jesus loves are. We believe that every church can be missionally vital, every church can be multi-site, and every church can multiply by living into a new mental model for what it means to be a local congregation. During this pre-conference you will learn about the vision, model, and tools that normal, everyday churches are using to become a movement that reaches new people.
Fresh Expressions WORKSHOP during Exponential 2022!
Rev. Dr. Michael Moynagh and Rev. Dr. Michael Beck will be offering a workshop during Exponential entited: “Democratizing Church Planting: Spirit Empowered Multiplication for the Whole People of God.” This workshop will include the following:
- Part 1 “Inaccessible Church” The first session will examine the shifts contributing to decline and explain an “ecclesiology of gift” and the need for the “democratization of church planting.”
- Part 2 “The Discipleship Journey” Evangelism, discipleship, and church planting are not programs, departments, or the expertise of specialists. They are a singular move of the Spirit that flows through the life of every Jesus follower. When we do this in community with others, we are the fullness of the “priesthood of all believers.”
- Part 3 “Church Planting for Everyone” This session is the “how” to do Spirit empowered multiplication from the local church setting. Tools, processes, and handouts will be provided.
