Mission Summit 2020: Engaging My Community

The Missouri District will host its second “Mission Summit” on Saturday, May 30 at Concordia Seminary. This summit is designed to bring together church workers and lay leaders of all sizes and demographics in a one-day Biblical, practical process of designing (or refining) sustainable plans of community engagement. Congregations are strongly encouraged to send a work team to this event because this will be a hands-on personal experience designed to take home.

Dr. Reed Lessing, pastor, theologian, author and speaker will lead two sessions of Bible Study. Those studies will be complimented with practical exercises and tools for congregations to examine their own context and mission opportunities. There will be twelve elective sessions to choose from examining specific mission contexts (e.g. small churches, children’s ministry, Millennial outreach) In the afternoon, congregations will work in one of seven tracks (Rural, Small Town, Suburban, Urban, Multi-Ethnic, Partnerships and Church Planting) where facilitators will help congregations work through the first steps of a designing their own specific mission plans. The goal is to leave the Summit with a plan in hand and the opportunity for a year of follow up with a trained coach.



The summit is free, but registration is required.
Deadline is for the first 225 registrations or May 17 whichever comes first.
Churches are highly encouraged to send teams for maximum effectiveness.
