Mission Symposium 2012 Recap
- Feb 7, 2012
"Everybody's talking about being 'missional.' Is 'being missional' just another church growth fad, or a radical new way to see life and ministry, grounded in the very heart of God?"
The goals of the Mission Symposium were to define the contours of a Missional Theology and identify its practical outworking in the lives of Christian leaders, churches, and organizations. In addition it sought to challenge and assist each participant to identify practical and specific steps they could take to see their life and ministry become more mission-focused.
The Mission Symposium was held Friday and Saturday, January 27-28, 2012.
Audio and presentation slides from the symposium are available below.
