Verge 2012 Conference

For The Gospel, For The City, For The Nations

The themes that have shaped this conference are incarnational ministry and disciple making. These words are used often in the Missional Church but easily misunderstood. Over the course of the next few days, we hope to explore the biblical understanding of discipleship and its practical implications for ministering to our friends, neighbors, and co-workers in the context of the 21st century. Leading thinkers and practitioners will be your guide as we begin to uncover the ways in which we can personally, locally, and globally engage in the mission of God. We hope that this will stimulate conversations that will work to renew your community’s journey to see the spark of the gospel of Jesus transform, renew, and multiply.
