The Next Church Gathering happened last week in Atlanta, GA. They live streamed much of the conference. You can listen to the keynote addresses and the Ignite presentations HERE.
We don’t have a ton of time on our hands to listen to stuff online but I would encourage us to listen to at least the Ignite presentations. Ignite is the style of presentation. “Ignite is a presentation format where each speakers gets 5 minutes, and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds, forcing speakers to get the point, fast.” Next Church asked folks to present ideas of exciting, innovative ministry happening in the denomination and chose five to highlight during the national convention in Atlanta.
If you don’t have time to listen to the whole ignite presentation, here are the previews.
And if you want to jump in on the conversation with other folks involved in the Next Church movement, consider participating in their roundtable discussions. The next roundtable discussion will be March 8, 1-2pm Eastern.
