I am really fired up about the Forge Missional Imaginations Conference. Why? Two words that represent two big reasons: 1.MISSIONAL. As I travel and interact with church leaders around the world I believe that God is calling his followers to think like missionaries. And people are responding to this call with a passion unlike I’ve ever seen. With Alan & Deb Hirsch, Michael Frost and Kim Hammond we are bringing together some of the leading missiologists in the world. 2. IMAGINATION. I believe one of the primary obstacle keeping followers of Jesus from being mobilized for mission is imagination. There are many well-meaning followers who are stuck in existing paradigms and don’t know what they don’t know. This conference will specific deal with redemption of the imagination to help people think creatively about how to accomplish the mission of Jesus. I would be there even if I wasn’t speaking, so check it out.
