Adrian Jacobs - Missions from the Margins: The Mission of Jesus is not about the strong to the weak, the civilized to the primitive, the rich to the poor, but the broken and humble inviting people into the community of Heaven. It brings a needed critique and calls for balance and mutuality between historical mission receiving nations in the East and mission sending nations in the West as co-equal partners in Christ.
Call to repentance & prayer
Worship: Dancers & Suuqinna & Quamaniq
Ray Aldred – The Gospel as Story; The Missio Dei is not about spiritual laws, principles or formulas, but an Invitation to the community of God. The Gospel and Christian faith must be reconsidered in the context of narrative theology, not a formulaic bias of Western systematic theology.
Randy Woodley – The Shalom of God: Missions with a Concern for Social Justice and Holistic Community Transformation as part of the message of the Gospel.
Mike Rynkiewich – Land and Identity: Land is more than dirt – it provided place, belonging and community.
3:00 PM Three Workshops:
Rita Bear-Gray & Michelle Clark: Developing a Relationship with God-the-Holy Spirit as Counselor, Comforter and Life Giver, not a supernatural being or source of impersonal power or knowledge.
Stanley Nwoji: The African Diaspora: Africa is no longer just a mission field, but the location of a new missionary wave that is impacting the Nations
Suuqiina & Quamaniq – Men and Women Seeing Eye To Eye: The restoration of men and women as equal partners in the circle of life and the mission of God. Men and women are created to operate on an equal level within God’s divine order so that they can be face to face not standing upon or over one another.
