Our calling to both individual and collective church ministry consists of engaging the world with more integrated approaches taking: personal calling, place, and prophetic engagement into weighty consideration. Yet too often ministry approaches can "gloss" over the critical self reflection necessary to engage neighborhood ecologies well. 

Join us as Pastor Jose Humphreys offers a framework to help church leaders take discipleship seriously in their context, calling them to show up, stay put, and see what God is doing in their midst. Combining spiritual formation with activism, vivid narrative with exhortation, and realism with hopefulness, Humphreys offers pastors, ministry leaders and church planters a thoughtful look at discipleship in a complex world. 

In this Webinar, you will: 

  • Learn a biblically and theologically embodied approach to engaging neighborhoods
  • Discover a framework you can readily use in your own context

"In this moment when gentrification seems inevitable and relocation is so trendy, the church desperately needs voices like José Humphreys's. Remaining has become a revolutionary act, and recognizing God amid marginalized communities is becoming a lost art. This book will empower you to do both, and it is a vital read for any believer longing to embody a counterculture neighborhood witness of presence and rootedness."  

—Dominique DuBois Gilliard, author of Rethinking Incarceration
