Ohio Conference will hold a missional conference March 7-8 at Salem Mennonite Church in Kidron, immediately prior to the 2019 Annual Conference Assembly. The theme of the missional conference will be “From Jerusalem to Antioch: Legacy Churches Anchoring Missional Communities,” based on Acts 11:19-30.
Presenters will be Sally Schreiner Youngquist, one of the founding pastors of Living Water Community Church in Chicago, Illinois; and Steve North, pastor of LifeLine Toledo, a church plant in Toledo, Ohio.
An excerpt from the conference brochure
What does the story of mission going out from Jerusalem as described in Acts 11 mean for churches in Ohio Conference? Perhaps, we, like the church in Jerusalem, can be anchors for mission. We have many years of walking together as congregations as well as many gifts and resources from God. Might we be called to anchor new church plants and missional communities? How can we share the best of our heritage and remain open to the renewal of the Holy Spirit?
