Church planting isn’t easy.
It’s a tough, rigorous calling that requires tenacious diligence, deep wisdom, and skillful preparation.
Whether you’re already leading a church, thinking about planting one, serving on a church or parachurch staff team, studying for future ministry, or just looking to learn, we want to invite you to a one-day conference devoted to the topic of church planting. This isn’t a big, splashy, “catch-all” conference; it’s laser-focused on the vision of planting gospel-centered, missional churches throughout the south-central United States.
You’ll walk out of this mini-conference filled with excitement about church planting, challenged in areas of your own life and ministry that might need reform, and renewed in your love for Jesus and his mission.
What’s unique about this conference?
First, the format. Most conferences are built around plenary stage messages from well-known speakers. This one is different. It’s less “conference” and more “TED Talk.” You’ll hear more than a dozen short, punchy, messages on various aspects of church planting, with plenty of time in between to interact with your team, engage in Q&A, and process what you’re learning.
Second, the DNA. This conference is hosted by the leaders and churches of Acts 29. Since Acts 29 is a theologically-driven church planting network, our convictions will be evident. We believe healthy churches are planted by biblically called and qualified MEN who preach, believe, and live the gospel MESSAGE and who lead God’s people on MISSION to the world around them, by the grace of God. These 3 focal points - the MAN, the MESSAGE, the MISSION - will orient and shape our time together.
Third, the speakers. We’re bringing together over a dozen practitioners - real, live, church-planting pastors who are doing it, not just talking about it. So in one day, you’ll hear from a diverse litany of voices, each bringing a different perspective on the work of church planting.
We invite you to join us at Clear Creek Community Church in Houston on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 (just before Exponential Houston 2019). We’re aiming for this to be the least expensive, most inspiring, and most beneficial event you attend all year.
