Janet Aguirre, Katie Huff; You don’t have to have an MD or MBA to be used by God. God calls us all to be missional in the way we approach our jobs, and every other area of our lives. Janet Aguirre and Katie Huff, a medical assistant and a registered nurse, will share stories and experiences. They never expected to be thrust into leadership roles at a grassroots homeless clinic, but offered their training and their path to honor Christ, and have learned/are learning what it means to live missionally. Doing work that is often unfamiliar with their training, God is using them and teaching them how to walk out the adventure of serving God’s purpose in one of the most broken communities in America.
Daisey Dowell; You know that you've been called to serve in the inner-city. However you sometimes wonder how you can effectively serve in a community whose culture may be quite different from the one that you have always known. This workshop will utilize discussion and case study illustrations to provide practical steps that we can take to better understand the culture, and engage more fully, with the community that we have been called to serve as urban missionaries.
2017 conference - "3 out of 10 ain't bad": advice for the considering, or new to, relocation and missional living
Relocation and missional living can be exciting and mundane; fulfilling and disappointing; enlightening and confusing; fruitful and barren. Come learn with several brothers and sisters at various stages in this process, who will share their struggles, victories, and advice as they have joined Jesus in the at-risk areas of our cities. There are many fears and misconceptions regarding relocation and missional living which might prevent disciples from moving to and remaining in “hard places”. In this session, we will seek to challenge and encourage those considering relocation, as well as empower rookies with pearls from those with more experience. Tyler Whitaker
It is easy to think that living missionally is something you will get to when you complete your training - when you have more time and control over your life. Russ Ayers
