Tomorrow the AMiA Winter Conference begins. What should we expect from this conference? It’s not entirely clear, but Rev. Ellis Brust provides us with some clues here:
Winter Conference provides an amazing opportunity to meet with others in ministry for prayer, praise, fellowship and to dream dreams for the future.
I believe Winter Conference is a mission launch-pad into the rest of the year for attendees. Having received powerful messages and practical applications from the plenary addresses and workshop leaders, the individual is “sent out” to put vision into action. The opportunity to dream with other innovative leaders is only fully realized when those dreams are then acted upon – when vision turns to action. This gathering of people serves as a sending platform for us to be the church dispersed.
Judging from the language of Rev. Brust, the conference will focus on dreams, powerful messages and vision from “innovative leaders.” All of this suggests change.
