Total Church North America Conference

Save the dates of August 12th-14th.  I'd encourage you to attend the Total Church North America Conference in San Diego, hosted by Kaleo Church.  This will not be your typical conference and will radically benefit those who attend so they can walk away changed and refreshed to do mission.

 Total church is a way of thinking about church and mission in the 21st century which sees the local Christian community as integral to Christian living and Christian mission. The Christian life is 'total church' – our identity is communal. The first Total Church was held in Sheffield, UK, in 2007 at the end of October, hosted by the Crowded House.  The conference is named for the book, Total Church -A Radical Reshaping Around Gospel and Community which will be released in the Fall in the US.

    Met you at the A29 luncheon in Raleigh (thanks for coming!).

    Thought you may be interested in a three part e-mail dialogue between Tony Payne (From Matthias Media in Sydney), Simon Flanders and Steve Timmis regarding Total Church. It’s quite substantive and illuminating (18 pages!).

    Part one is here:

    Parts two and three available at the end of the article.
