If you’re involved in a church plant, we highly recommend you consider attending this conference in Seattle at Mars Hill Church May 9-11, 2006.
From the website:
As another generation comes of age, the Gospel of Jesus Christ must resurge to meet the needs of people and their continually changing cultures. The time has come for the church to move forward into the time and place for which God purposed us, and to meet our day with unchanging, vibrant, unabashed Truth.
