The days when a town gathered on Sunday for church have been replaced by weekends at soccer fields and tailgate parties. Parents spend their free time chauffeuring their kids to sports, while others their expendable time and income to marathons or mountain climbing. What if these past times are not competing with church, but actually providing new contexts for Christians to love and serve their neighbors, disciple one another and even form new expressions of Church? This pre-conference event will give you a new vision how to form faith communities in the place you love to play.

For over a decade, the Fresh Expressions movement has worked to understand how to be church in a changing culture by creating new forms of church alongside inherited congregations. The movement has brought widespread impact and renewal to hundreds of congregations – helping the whole ecosystem of a local congregations life return to being “mission-shaped”. In this Pre-Conference you will come to understand the critical, “what’s, why’s, and how’s” of fresh expressions of church, how it intersects with everyday congregations and communities, and what you can do next to get started!

Dinner Church Pre Conference Event - NG 2020-2.png 

While many churches compete to win back the “nones and dones” who have disaffiliated with institutional churches, there remains a large section of the population who are ambivalent or simply unaware of the Church. Grounded in the practices of Jesus and the Apostles, the Dinner Church movement is an expression of Church that deeply resonates with many who would never feel at home in typical “proclamation-focused churches.” This pre-conference event will show you an expression of Church that is not only effective in reaching the “never-been-churched” but is also scalable and affordable for normal churches and denominations.

Local congregation

In the outdated Christendom model, a local congregation gathers neighbors who affiliate with a tradition or denomination. Today, churches and other membership-based organizations, such as Scouts, Lions or Rotary Clubs and even political parties struggle to maintain their base. But the God who makes all things new is renewing the local church with models that reach today’s loosely bound communities. In this pre-conference event, you’ll discover the Blended Ecology of Church, a method for remissioning a local congregation to empower their members to create new beachheads for the Kingdom of God in all kinds of contexts.
