SW District Fresh Expressions - Morning with Mike
SW DISTRICT FRESH EXPRESSIONS
MORNING WITH MIKE
At Annual Conference this past June Rev. Dan Jackson had the privilege of announcing that the Florida Conference has at least 301 Fresh Expressions of Church. Fresh Expressions of Church are Christian communities that are specifically designed to connect with New People in New Ways and in New Places. The movement began in the United Kingdom in the late 1990’s as a response to the decline in church involvement. One of the leaders of that early UK movement was Rev. Dr. Michael Moynagh. Mike is an Anglican priest and coordinator of The Tomorrow Project which advises government and businesses on future trends. He is what you would describe as among the small group of Fresh Expressions “Pioneering Pioneers” in the UK. Among Mike’s books are: Refresh: A not-so-new guide to being church and doing life. Church in Life
, Church for Every Context
, Being Church, Doing Life
, Changing World, Changing Church, Working in the 21st Century,
and the list goes on.
This September we will have the privilege of spending “A Morning with Mike.” Fresh Expressions Florida is bringing Mike to Florida to lead a session of our Pioneer Generative Leader Academy, to meet with Bishop Carter and Cabinet and to lead 3 public sessions on Fresh Expressions. The SW District is pleased that Mike will be with the South West District on September 17, from 9-12, at Edgewater United Methodist Church, 19190 Cochran Blvd., Port Charlotte.
