To The Verge And Beyond

The Verge 2010, a “Missional Community Conference”, is taking place this week, Thursday the 4th through Saturday the 6th, in Austin, Texas.

The theme of the conference is “The DNA of Gospel Movements”.

I am blessed that I am going to be able to attend Verge. I’m looking forward to the general sessions, the break-out sessions, and all of the visiting that will occur in between sessions and during meals.  I trust that I will meet new friends and learn a lot about missional community ministry.

There are two particular break-out sessions that I am excited about being a part of. The first one is a two-part break-out entitled “Gospel Centered Missional Community”. It will be facilitated by Jeff Vanderstelt from the Soma Communities church in Tacoma, Washington. I follow Jeff’s blog postings,visit the church’s website often, have read some of the material he has written for the ministry at Soma, and have listened to some of his audio teachings. I believe time in this break-out is going to be time well spent.

The second break-out session that I look forward to being a part will be led by Hugh Halter from the Adullam church in Denver. The title of this break-out is “How To Do Mission In The Burbs”. I read and have been very influenced by The Tangible Kingdom, the book that Hugh co-authored with Matt Smay.

I’ll be spending Thursday and Friday nights with a friend and his wife in southwest Austin. They are involved in international student ministry at the University of Texas (Austin). It will be good to visit with them and hear about what the Lord is doing in the hearts of students at UT.

It is going to be a great two and one-half days.
