Jesus teaches us to pray “thy Kingdom come.” What would the Kingdom look like on “earth as it is in heaven?” How would our communities be affected? How would our congregations be different? What do congregations and church leader need to do to engage God’s mission on planet Earth?
The Northwest District has invited Reggie McNeal, author and consultant, to guide participants in a day of exploration of these issues. “Kingdom Come: Impacting Our Communities for Life” will be Saturday, April 11, 2015 at Friendship UMC in Athens. This event is for pastors, mission teams, visionary leaders, and anyone interested in helping lead your church to a new level of missional impact.
