Total Church 2.0 Conference Audio

The Total Church 2.0 Conference: I Will Build My Church audio is up. This was our second Total Church Conference and it took much of what we discussed in the first Total Church conference and tried to move it forward to see what it looks like to live in Jesus community on Jesus mission motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Kingdom.

Main Session 1: The Cross and the Missional Church (coming soon) Michael Goheen
The crucifixion has often been interpreted simply in terms of its benefits for individual people. While true, this is inadequate. When the cross is placed in the context of the literary structure of the gospels and in the context of the whole biblical story, the cross has cosmic and ecclesiological significance. This talk will unfold the cosmic scope, communal significance, and the transforming power of the cross, all of which produce a missional people.

Main Session 2: The Significance of the Cross and Resurrection for a Missional Church (Part 1) Michael Goheen
The crucifixion has often been interpreted simply in terms of its benefits for individual people. While true, this is inadequate. When the cross is placed in the context of the literary structure of the gospels and in the context of the whole biblical story, the cross has cosmic and ecclesiological significance. This talk unfolds the cosmic scope, communal significance, and the transforming power of the cross, all of which produce a missional people. Like the cross, the resurrection has often been shorn of its ecclesiological and missional implications. The resurrection stands at the centre of history with cosmic and communal significance, and this lecture also opens this up with an eye to its missional importance.

Main Session 4: A Phenomenal Dependency Steve Timmis
The church wasn’t some idea that emerged out of Paul’s missionary journeys. Jesus came to create a new stand-out community that would model to the world what it actually looked like when Jesus ruled. When we read his manifesto known as the Sermon on the Mount, we see that it was (and is) something altogether phenomenal. In these sessions, we take a close look at just what it means to be the people of God.

Main Session 5 : The Commissioning of the Risen Christ: Defining Our Identity Michael Goheen
All the gospels end with a commissioning by the resurrected Lord. Often these commissions are interpreted as sending individuals to do evangelistic or mission work. Yet these are words that define the church in terms of its identity and its role in the biblical drama. This session opens up these comissions in terms of the way they define a missional community.

  1. Drew,

    I saw your recommendation to read Total Church that you posted on the Twelve Tribes blog that you shut down a few years ago. Are there any other Bible-believing groups that you know of in the USA that practice communal living of all things in common successfully? (Excluding Hutterites and Amish) If yes, who and where are they? Are there any in California?

    Greg
