1001 new worshiping communities is movement happening in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Here’s what they had to say about a recent Fresh Expressions Vision Day:
“’Fresh Expressions’ is not ‘the’ answer, but is certainly something God is up to and warrants our participation,” explained Craig Williams, mission catalyst for the 1001 Movement on the west coast. For Williams such Vision Days set forth a way to start participating in this new thing that appears to be unfolding within the church on both sides of the Atlantic.
“In many ways this is a frightening era in the church in North America,” admitted Travis Collins, director of mission advancement for Fresh Expressions U.S., one of the sponsors of the daylong conference, along with the Presbytery of Los Ranchos.
“It is an unsettling time ― an unnerving time. But if you are willing to think like a missionary it is also an exciting time,” said Collins.
