Getting Ready To Roll

Folks, I’m off tomorrow to the Ecclesia Network Church Planting Training in Richmond VA. I’ll be hanging with the likes of Bob Hyatt, JR Woodward, J R Briggs, and many many more. We’ll be eating, talking, dialoguing, assessing and talking somemore in a retreat center in Richmond VA. We’ll be covering alot of issues with church planters in the process of planting missional communities. I’ll be covering things like competencies of a missional church planter (I think they look much different than they did thirty years ago for several theological and cultural reasons), the shaping and role of the worship gathering in a missional church plant, I’ll be presenting the model of church planting I have become most comfortable in the new post Christendom contexts of N America, and I’ll be bantering on the most valuable lessons of leadership I’ve learned from my own church planting, community leading life. That’s just my piece, I expect to learn “cazillions” from the many other planters/leaders there. Looking forward to it.
On this blog coming up I expect to

-report at least once from the planter training week.

– Interact with this post on leadership (or lack of it) in organic communities by Neil Cole. I think this is a huge issue for seeding missional communities.

– and I hope to finally blog on the shape of redemptive missional community and its necessity for Mission among the GLBTQ peoples.
