Annual Conference 2019 / Gather – Practice – Witness: A Journey toward Hope

September 12, 7:00 pm - September 14, 1:00 pm

America is more politically polarized than it’s been since the Civil War. Our divisiveness has taken up residence in our churches and our homes. Thankfully, God has given us the gift of conflict as an opportunity for spiritual growth. At our second Annual Conference, join fellow Christians who are hungry to live into that opportunity. Join us as we Gather in the name of Jesus, Practice loving each other across difference, Witness the body of Christ built up, and give Witness to the deepest desire and reality of the world. Hear from a remarkable lineup of speakers, each of whom will explore one part of the Christian habit to “Gather – Practice – Witness” and discuss how it provides a spiritual sanctuary in the wildernesses of our cultural moment.

The Colossian Way Leader Training

October 3, 9:00 am - October 4, 3:00 pm

What if your church or organization became a place that transformed disagreements into opportunities for healing and discipleship? The Colossian Way is a curriculum that equips people with the tools to recover their ability to stay in relationship with and love one another, despite disagreement. By adopting The Colossian Way, your church or organization can become a place of reconciliation. You can guide your organization through this transformation by becoming a Colossian Way Leader. Over three days, you’ll receive instruction from experienced Colossian Forum staff, who will equip you to lead Colossian Way groups on any TCW topic – Origins, Sexuality or Political Talk. Once you complete the training, you’ll be able to help others learn how to reflect the beauty of Christ when they disagree.  

PLEASE NOTE: This training is available by invitation only. If you are not sure whether this event is for you but would like to attend, please email tcw@colossianforum.org, and we will help you find a solution.
