New Brochure for Emergence 2007 [update]

UPDATE: New Brochure



An important series of events for the Emerging Church in USA. These events are connected to the book “Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches” [see my review] and the pending release of The Emergent Manifesto of Hope”. I am very impressed with the choice of hosts – especially since I am one of them (Minneapolis, May 18-19). The others are Krista Tippett from Speaking of Faith (Seattle, June 1-2) and Scot McKnight (Austin, April 27-28)). The speaker-line up is good also – some very cool people with experience in different facets of the emerging church. We will be exploring the possibility of a “post-evangelical church for a post-Christian world“.

Emergencebroch Mh CmsSpeaking of the brochure, I think Scot is being cheeky when he is introduced as Technorati’s Number One site for emerging church. OK – so I’m second! Big deal! Did you hear me carrying on and on when I was first for all those years???? Never! Ma genoito! May it never be! But now that Scot kicks me off the perch, I never hear the end of it. Still, he’s a nice guy and his conference in Austin will be almost as compelling as mine in Minneapolis. I cant make it to the other events. I will be in Denver during the Austin event and will be in the UK during the Seattle event. But I am sure they will be worth attending.

  • Question – I’m going to be visiting my family is Austin in April and am thinking of attending the event. I’m also thinking of seeing if my anti-emergent father might be interested in attending. will these events be a learning experience, safe for the seeker? I generally try to avoid fights/discussions with my parents about these things, but would also love for them to get beyond the sensational rumors they hear about “us.”

  • Philip says:

    I would travel around the world to hear Krista Tippett speak (If I had the cash). I mow my lawn (3.5 hours)every fortnight while I listen to her podcasts from Speaking of Faith. Her’s are the best podcasts I have found in regards to production and content.

    makeesha – private party for house church network leaders in denver.
    marko . .. SHUTTUP!
    julie- i really dont know if this is the best one. it might be. you could read up more and make a decision. but scot would be a good guide for him, i think.
    we have held a number of events in austin since 1999 that have been quite accessible and a good entry point into all things emerging and missional.

  • Makeesha says:

    andrew – well that’s no fun. oh well, I’ll just think of you hanging out a mere hour from me and sigh wistfully

  • Stacey says:

    Thanks for the heads up on this. We are actually going to be in the Twin Cities on a short furlough so it will be great to be able to attend.

  • Andrew, my friend. I think all I have on my “bio” is that my blog has been ranked #1 — and it has. I haven’t seen Zondervan’s words, but I’M KICKING YOUR BUTT, BUDDY. But, who’s checking numbers?
    Sadly, I was really hoping that I’d meet the TSK in Austin, so I’m sad to see you won’t be there.

  • Chris Enstad says:

    How long are you in Minneapolis? Can I get an hour from you on Friday at 1:30 to meet with me and the senior pastor of our church? We’re looking at some next steps with engaging in the emerging culture and you’re wisdom would be most welcome.

  • Dave says:

    Guess it will all be available by podcast for us not in the US.
    Sounds good, they should have got Don Carson et al to speak, be great to see a gathering where people of differing views could come and thrash it out…last one I remember was in Jerusalem AD 60ish, that one ended pretty well.

  • Helen says:

    Sounds like fun.
    Does the “Emergent Manifesto of Hope” include this hope: “I hope I will be first on Technorati one day”? I would like to think it is going to realistically describe what emergent Christians hope for 😉

  • Chad says:

    An Emergent Manifesto of Hope is now available. See!

  • pj says:

    Knower of many emergent things…
    whaddup with the reschedule of Austin and Minneapolis?

  • andrew says:

    minneapolis is still on but austin and seattle are rescheduled. not exactly sure why.
