Missio Alliance is excited to be part of Amplify 2016, a new conference of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College. This event, being held June 28-30, 2016 on the campus of Wheaton College, is focused on the need to reimagine and reprioritize evangelism in our local churches. Here’s a bit more on this unique gathering…
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF AMPLIFY?
Many in church leadership positions want to help those in their care to increase their gospel witness and prioritize evangelism. Unfortunately, as our world changes so quickly, strategies for making this happen often cannot keep pace. We are coming together to lead the conversation in evangelism and then implement a renewal of evangelism in our local churches. We will be sharing research, platforming speakers, and conducting breakouts to move the conversation about evangelism and the local church forward. The event will feature a mix of plenary speakers, case studies, research, breakout sessions, and networking times.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND AMPLIFY?
Amplify is for anyone in a church leadership position or in a position outside the local church setting where you are seeking to weave an evangelism ethos into your own life or the lives of others. The conference is intended to equip and inspire you personally and as you lead others in developing a lifestyle of gospel witness.
We are especially pleased that one of our very own Leading Voices, David Fitch, will be participating as a presenter.
Luke 10 challenges the church to go and be present among the places we live. Only then, after being present, and have sufficiently heard our neighbors, does Jesus say “proclaim the gospel.” David Fitch will explore how presence always precedes proclamation and how this changes the ways we think about evangelism and the gospel.
The conference is intended to equip and inspire you personally and as you lead others in developing a lifestyle of gospel witness. The event will feature a mix of plenary speakers, case studies, research, breakout sessions, and networking times. other speakers include evangelist Luis Palau, authors Lee Strobel and Rice Broocks, Pastors Derwin Gray, James Meeks, Paco Amador, evangelism leaders Kim Reisman and Ed Stetzer, and many more.
