Pepperdine University is sponsoring a special meeting during the 2013 RENEW conference, hosted by Jason Locke and the College Church of Christ in Fresno. This is an extraordinary, future-oriented, structured dialogue among Church of Christ leaders on Saturday, February 9, 2013, from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. at the College Church of Christ (1284 E Bullard Ave, Fresno, CA 93710). Individuals will be coming from all over California and possibly beyond for this dialogue.
RENEW is a weekend-long conference that costs just $20. This leadership session will take place during the Saturday afternoon block of RENEW events. Included with your registration, you will receive lunch and refreshments during our time together. Our dialogue will begin promptly at 12:00 noon and continue with short breaks until 5:00 p.m.
Our purpose in holding this structured dialogue is two-fold:
1) To redirect our general Church of Christ conversation toward the positive and away from the negative.
2) To identify our common strengths which allow us to build for the future on the West Coast.
Guests are encouraged to invite a fellow church leader to register for this program. The conversations will be structured to provide the best possible opportunity for candid, thoughtful exchange among all participants. We will not be problem-solving what already exists. Rather, we will be engaging one another in discussion about what we want to collectively create to afford Churches of Christ the best possible future here on the West Coast. A strong presence is vital. Participating will, we believe, positively shape our shared future (Philippians 4:8).
This meeting will be facilitated by Jon Mullican. Jon is
Executive Minister at Highland Oaks Church of Christ,
Dallas, Texas, and Co-Leader of Hope Network Ministries, a
ministry that mentors and equips church leaders for the
coming waves of change.
Pepperdine University is partnering with Hope Network
Ministries so that this event during RENEW can encourage
our network of churches, schools, and para-church
organizations on the West Coast to move in faith toward a
hope-filled future only God can provide.
