If you feel called to plant a new congregation, start a new kind of ministry or simply start a small group that is designed to reach contemporary, unchurched people – this is your opportunity! May 2-8, 2010 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA) Monte Sahlin and I (Peter Roennfeldt) will team up for an Adventist Fresh Expressions conference.
Monte Sahlin has helped churches and community groups start more than 100 community-based ministries of compassion since he organized ACT in Los Angeles in 1967. He has planted churches; served as a pastor, director of urban ministries, and assistant to the president of the North American Division. He is currently director of research and special projects in the Ohio Conference – and also teaches community organizing for the Tony Campolo Graduate School at Eastern University.
Andrew and Mayda Clark will host the event at their church plant and community service project in Pittsburgh. You will be able to worship with their PULSE congregation on Saturday and tour the many projects they have completed in the Carnegie neighborhood—housing rehabilitation, building a community park, small-business development, eradicating hunger in the community, help for teens and young adults, community organizing, etc. This is one of the most innovative outreaches in America today.
– Seats will be reserved on the basis of a $50 deposit.
– All must read or re-read the Book of Acts before arriving.
– Come as teams of at least two to four people attend.
