B J Woodworth, pastor of The Open Door, an Emerging Church in Pittsburgh, just sent me an e-mail announcing an emerging church gathering there.
The Heart of the Missional Church is a three day gathering for people engaged in missional church life and those interested in learning more about the emerging missional conversation. The experience is designed to encourage, connect, catalyze, facilitate, empower, and resource the church in the greater Pittsburgh region and beyond.
The gathering will feature conversations (see conversation descriptions) facilitated by local missional leaders on Thursday and Friday nights. On Thursday night we will gather at The Union Project in Pittsburgh's East End and on Friday evening and Saturday we will gather at Fountain Park Church in Cranberry.
Saturday will feature Doug Pagitt of Minneapolis, MN who is the Pastor of Solomon's Porch and noted author and speaker in the emerging/missional conversation.
The cost of the event is only $16 and includes all admission for all three days as well as lunch on Saturday, provided by Hot Dogma. For more information, including a complete schedule, description of the evening conversations, information about Doug Pagitt, and to register go to http://www.emergentpittsburgh.org/hmc/.
