Event description

Description

Life in poor communities is hard.

The Church is a display of God’s glory in the midst of a hurting community. Who will go and build healthy churches among the world’s poorest communities?

We define hard places as “economically and socially disadvantaged communities”. Churches in hard places often share common struggles. Our goal is to equip church leaders, train indigenous believers, and develop resources to build healthy churches in hard places.

Church in Hard Places is an initiative of Acts 29. Acts 29 seeks to encourage and equip the church to plant healthy churches in our poorest communities.

For this workshop, we are bringing in our friends from Scotland. What might be surprising to some is how similar their context is with our inner cities. They, too, deal with high levels of unemployment, poverty, and drug addiction. 20shemes is a ministry seeking to plant churches among Scotland's poorest.

Pastor Mez McConnell: Pastor of Niddrie Community Church, Edinburgh, author of “Church in Hard Places”. Founder of 20schemes.

Pastor Matthew Spandler-Davison: Pastor of Redeemer Fellowship Church, Kentucky, Executive Director of 20schemes.
