227. Missional Commons: Evangelism in the Missional Church

The Missional Commons

Ever participated in the Missional Commons? This will be my first opportunity to hang out with some folks in the Chicago area. Geoff Holsclaw has been stoking this fire for a while now. 
Here is some of the info from Geoff's site. This year’s Missional Learning Commons will focus on the oft forgotten member of the 5-fold gifts for the church (Eph. 5): the Evangelists.

The Evangelist in the Missional Church

While the Attractional Church focuses mostly on Pastors and Teachers, the Missional Church often gravitates toward the Apostles and Prophets.

But what of the Evangelists?
On Nov. 7th and 8th the Missinoal Comons will focus our attention on the Practices of Proclamation & Presence as we seek the Kingdom of God among us in personal spaces, social spaces, and public spaces.  
I'll be teaching a session on the profile of an evangelist, with implications for how we recognizer and empower evangelists in the missional church and movements. 
Friday, Nov. 7th (7:30-9:00pm)
Saturday, Nov. 8th (8:30am-3:00pm)
Registration will include a catered lunch on Saturday as well as childcare on Satuday for those who need it.
