coming to Chicago!

August 31, 2011

I’m going to be in Chicago for a few days on October 27-29. If you’re in the Chicago-land area, I would LOVE to see you. We’re going to be at Northern Seminary out in Lombard near Wheaton. Here’s what the schedule of those few days is going to look like:

  • Thursday | October 27: 7-9pm. We’ll be presenting a whitepaper and video on re-imagining theological education followed by an extended time of discussion and Q&A. Going to be making some pretty provocative statements and the discussion time should be stellar.
  • Friday | October 28: 9am-5pm. 3DM in Chicago: A workshop on discipleship and mission. We’re going to spend the day exploring the link between discipleship and mission and how if we re-embrace the ancient calling of discipleship, we’ll get the whole “missional” thing. You can register for this event by clicking here.
  • Friday & Saturday | October 28-29. Missional Learning Commons.I’ll be helping to facilitate this event with the Ecclesia Network and you can register for it by clicking here.  This year, the focus is on discipleship. Here are some of the questions that will be shaping our time together:
    • What does discipleship actually look like in our lives?
    • Does the gospel we preach naturally and organically lead people into discipleship, or does it feel like an extra-curricular activity?
    • How should the call to make disciples shape and guide our church practices: what we do, and how we do it?
    • What is the significance of discipleship as the core component of the formation of Christian leaders?
If you’re in Chicago, we’d love to see you there over those three days. It should be a great time together.

    Is the Thursday event open to the public?

      Jason, we are still in the process of putting the details for the Thursday evening “event” together. It would actually help quite a bit if you could summarize what your specific interest in attending on that evening would be. We can use this to gauge the interest of others. Thanks.
