Description

Deep Roots, Wild Branches: The Mission of the Spirit in the Renewal of the Church

Promised by Jesus in the Gospel accounts, progressively demonstrated throughout the book of Acts, and central to Paul’s own message and ministry, the Holy Spirit is the presence and power of God at work among us unto the redemption, reconciliation, and recreation of all things.

Unfortunately, over the last hundred years, the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit has been controversial and even suspect in some places or relegated to obscurity among others. This has resulted in most of the Church operating without a practical theology of the Holy Spirit.

However, in this new era of mission, our attention is called back to the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit of God among us. It's not surprising that the predominant interaction of the early church with the Spirit was for mission. Ours should be the same.

Join us for a day to explore the a renewed imagination for the work and empowering of the Holy Spirit in our own lives and in the mission of the church.
