Focus

The challenges facing ministry leaders today are new and some of the greatest we’ve known in several decades. We face frequent change, increasing complexity, and a growing skepticism from our societal context. Therefore, we need a life that is up to the challenge and a work flowing from that life that corresponds to our particular call.

This year, it is our honor to be joined by well-known Philosopher/Theologian Dr. Dallas Willard. The number of accolades and awards we could attach to his name are great, but all the more, we know him to be a person that does what he teaches.

We will also be joined by Mary & Bob Hopkins. When you strip away most of the missional work that has been taking place throughout the UK over the last two decades, near the center of that development you’ll find this couple, quietly working behind the scenes.

Also, Todd Hunter, former President of the Vineyard and Professor at George Fox University will also be joining us. Todd has most recently taken on the role of a Bishop within the western region of the Anglican Province of North America.

Perhaps most important, we will also hear from one another, as fellow practitioners that are sharing the journey of ministry in this new world together. As always, there will be an opportunity to learn more about the Ecclesia Network and what is ahead for the network in the future.

This gathering is open to all and as always, will be intentionally limited in number, so register quickly.
