Birmingham Invites Us To ... Birmingham!

Avenue I Before
Join Us in Birmingham for a National City-Reaching Conference
Dear Chicagoland Cityreachers,
On March 1-3, 2010 right here in Birmingham we will have the privilege of learning from some of the top practitioners in the city-reaching movement. I am so excited about Birmingham, Alabama being chosen as the host city for the Mission America Coalition National City Impact Roundtable.

During the three day conference on city reaching, you will hear from:

  • George Otis, Jr., Producer of the Transformations videos
  • Dr. John Perkins, Founder of the Christian Community Development Asssociation
  • Dr. Paul Cedar, President of the Mission America Coalition

The National City Impact Roundtable is designed as a learning community where 150-200 leaders from all over the nation will converge to learn from seasoned veterans and from each other about what it would take to see an entire community transformed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

You will not want to miss this opportunity to discover more from the top leaders in this movement! Register today at www.cityreaching.com - the early bird registration ends January 15!

Purpose
The Mission America Coalition National City Impact roundtable convenes Christian leaders from all over the nation to continue learning about the process of seeing cities transformed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The specific focus of this National City Impact Roundtable is to present four identified styles of city-reaching with an accompanying "best practice":
¨ Presence-Based

Practical considerations will be made as we seek to create ways to converge and synergize the community transformation styles within a particular city.

This is Hannah Bevills, Editor for Christian.com which is a social network made specifically for Christians, by Christians, to directly fulfill Christian's needs. We embarked on this endeavor to offer the ENTIRE christian community an outlet to join together as one (no matter denomination) and better spread the good word of Christianity. Christian.com has many great features aside from the obvious like christian TV, prayer request or even find a church/receive advice. We have emailed you because we have interest in collaborating with you and your blog to help us spread the good word. I look forward to an email regarding the matter, Thanks!

God Bless
