Missiongathering Revive February 22-25 in San Diego, CA
The Missiongathering Movement is hosting the Revive Conference, taking place at Missiongathering San Diego, February 22 – 25, 2018.
The Revive Conference is a progressive, inclusive, missional church conference dedicated to equipping and empowering pastors, church planters, and lay people alike to join with the Spirit in the renewal of the church.
Those planning this gathering share their mission:
We believe that the local church is called to be a hub of justice, social transformation, and spiritual nourishment, drawing people from diverse sexualities, gender identities, and ethnicities together to follow in the way of Jesus. The Revive Conference brings together leading pastors, activists, and theologians to offer practical direction and encouragement to individuals and communities seeking to lean in to the new thing God is doing both in and through the church. If you’re a progressive Christian who still believes the church is called to be the vehicle of transformation and renewal in your neighborhood, Revive is the conference for you.
As a movement withing the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Missiongathering seeks to foster wholeness through imagining faith, inspiring hope, and illuminating love in grace-filled environments open and affirming to all. As a movement we have been called to instill courage in a generation of pessimists, to revive urban centers that have been abandoned by the church, and to offer grace to those who have lost their way. As a part of the larger Disciples of Christ movement, we are a tool for building new churches and renewing established DOC congregations.
