Building Citywide Movement Through Solidarity with the Margins
City-wide movement is getting more attention and something many leaders care about and desire to engage with in their cities. We believe we can do more together then separate and that unity is key to Jesus’ mission, but Christian unity is only able to be fully realized insomuch as cities seek to grow their movement in solidarity to those on the margins. This workshop will look at how authentic Christian unity within a city must also be a faithful, prophetic witness to the kingdom of God over and against the powers of darkness and unjust structures. In collaborative church movements that are seeking to strengthen church planting, it is essential to consider the whole of your city and take overlooked neighborhoods into account. We will look at how to nurture city movements in ways that lead you to cross dividing lines within a city and how to go about it in holistic and honoring ways. Dennae will share about the work happening in Phoenix and ways they are experimenting with strengthening citywide church planting and church renewal.
