FutureMinistry with Alan Hirsch

Society is changing. The shape of ministry is also changing. What will effective ministry look like in the future? How can be both effective and faithful? Can we anticipate and shape FutureMinistry rather than be forces to react to it or be left behind by it? This conference was focused on these questions.

Our special guest and resource for envisioning FutureMinistry was Alan Hirsch. A key architect of the concept of the missional church, Hirsch is a prominent thought leader in current conversations about finding pathways to effective – and faithful – patterns of ministry.  Below is a video produced by Grace & Pease Magazine recaping the event.
