Genesis – A Theological & Practical Trajectory for Missional Church Planting
November 13 @ 4:00 pm - November 17 @ 12:00 pm
For people looking for a church planters training experience that is relationally based, oriented by mission, and demonstrating a diversity of models and approaches, you’ve found the right opportunity.
Genesis is unique in comparison to other church planters training opportunities available.
First, there will not be hundreds of people here. More than likely, there will be somewhere between 15-25. This means plenty of room for dialog, conversation, and questions amidst all of the planned training.
Second, everyone stays, eats, and prays together for the week. Most people leave with better friendships, some of which will be life-long, because they started the church planting journey – in this way – together.
Third, there will be a host of different equippers with unique planting stories. This gathering [as in all we try to do] isn’t dominated by just a few individuals or models of church planting. You’ll hear from a variety of planters, both seasoned and new, and learn from their experiences and approaches.
Finally, we will provide a good balance of theology, theory, and practicality. Each component is vital.
