Reasons to Attend the One-of-a-Kind Praxis Gathering By V3 Movement

As an initiative that cares deeply about a decidedly missional approach to church planting, we’re excited to let you know about a one-of-a-kind gathering being put on by one of our partners, V3 Movement. Here are just a few of the key characteristics of this training-focused event:


  • You will not only hear from, but be able to interact with some of the best practitioners in the country in regard to grounded missional practice, including Alan and Deb Hirsch, Jon Tyson, David Fitch, Gideon Tsang, A.J. Swoboda, Linda Bergquist, David Bailey, Mia Chang and more… 


  • It is a communal event, in that we meet, eat and sleep at the same retreat center within the Washington DC beltway, which allows for natural connection with others over a meal or in a lounge area


  • You will have the chance to meaningfully interact with other placed-based, discipleship-focused, movement-oriented, missional-incarnational church planters and leaders


  • You can meet with some incredible partners who are helping to sponsor this event, including InterVarsity Press, Missio Alliance, Fuller Theological Seminary, Asbury Theological Seminary, Parish Collective, iTeams and Reliant Mission 


  • The price of the conference is amazing, in that it includes conference fees, room and board in the Washington D.C. area


  • The gathering is organized by four spaces of belonging – intimate, personal, social and public space – so that you have the opportunity to connect with people in various ways


  • The workshops on Friday cover meaningful topics and have a mix of rich theology and concrete practice
