The Missio Conference will be held in Cincinnati on Sept 29-October 1.

MISSIO is… A gathering of emerging church leaders and fresh expressions practitioners for conversation and collaboration in (re) imagining church in ways that are radically incarnational and contextual to embody the Gospel and Reign of God in today’s culture. This will be an opportunity for people in traditional congregations to dialogue with leaders of emerging Christianity, to discover innovative resources for building community through radical hospitality, emergent worship, and missional church planting within a postmodern and post-secular world. Together, we will explore what it means to be what the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, calls a “mixed-economy church,” where traditional congregations and new expressions of church work together to participate in God’s mission in the world.

ERB editor Chris Smith, will be leading a session on Slow Church, based on a book on this theme that he is co-writing with John Pattison.

No Longer Strangers

**** Registration is still open… ****
**** Friday evening’s session is free and open to the public.
Come and bring a friend!  ****

Immigration is one of today’s most pressing issues, one on which there is much fear, misunderstanding and tension. We believe that in the church community – where, despite our ethnic heritages, we are brothers and sisters – we can begin to untangle the misunderstandings and seek justice and reconciliation together.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation – in English and Spanish – on the church and immigration.

Main Speaker:
Daniel Carroll Rodas, Author of: Christians At the Border

When: Friday evening April 8 and Saturday April 9, 2011

Where: Englewood Christian Church / Indianapolis
