Let's Take A Team to the Naitonal "CIR" ~ !!

Do you have a passion for seeing your city transformed by the power of the Gospel? CIR provides an opportunity to join with dozens of others of like mind.

Over one hundred cityreachers gathered last April in St. Louis for what proved to be a dynamic CIR. Our diverse and creative Design Team invites you to participate in CIR 2006 in Cedar Rapids, home to a sustained city-reaching movement of twenty years.

CIR Details and registr! ation
The National CIR is an annual learning community of all interested in serious city-reaching endeavors. "Pray for the city, because if it prospers, you too will prosper..." Jeremiah 29:7

The City Impact Roundtable (CIR) is a network of like-minded men and women, working in partnership with City Community Ministries of the Mission America Coalition, committed to bring kingdom leaders together in cities to engage in earnest prayer, collaborate evangelism and social justice. Cityreachers, representing varying streams of a growing paradigm of transformational change, want to see impact of God's kingdom on society that is both measurable and sustainable.

From 1 PM Monday, April 3, to noon Wednesday, April 5

What's the Program?
Hearing the Word of the Lord. Francis Frangipane, one of the longtime spiritual fathers of Cedar Rapids, and well-known prolific author, will be this year's plenary speaker. Francis will bring us a creative word that is both prophetic and practical.

City Models. Based on extensive feedback from former CIRs, we will focus on our "main, plain" purpose: experienced practitioners unpack the core principles and best practices of city movements that have life, momentum and promise. As of today, we have five cities committed to present their models:

•Cedar Rapids
•Tuscaloosa AL
•a regional model from El Paso TX, Las Cruces NM and Juarez MEXICO
•and Boston MA.

Extensive time will be given to hear these presentations and interact together about the strengths & weaknesses of these models. Presenters from these cities will be further available at two meals for "Table Talk" Q & A interaction. These presentations will involve a mix of pastors, men and women in marketplace ministries, emerging leaders, and social justice ministries.

Workshops currently on the pad:
** "What Veteran Cityreachers Wish Emerging City Leaders Knew"
** "Loving our Cities & Communities to Christ" (the "LC2C" strategy of the Mission America Coalition"
** "City AIDS Summits, Fall '06"
** "Issues Unique to the Mega-City" Movement
** "Social Justice Breakthroughs"
** "Global Day of Prayer & 90 Days of Blessing"
