Event description

Description

LIFT: Engaging Gospel Movements Across Chicago is a free one-day pastor's conference with A.R. Bernard, Mark Jobe, Wilfredo De Jesus, Charlie Dates, Jackson Crum, Jon Ferguson, Adron Robinson, Daniel Yang, Jon Dennis and Ron Zappia along with hundreds of Chicago area Church leaders. God is at work in churches across Chicago and you are invited to hear stories and testimonies from other leaders, be challenged to carry out the work God has given you, and even enjoy a free lunch as you break bread with other Chicago pastors.

As we watch to see where God is at work and join with him (Jn 5:19-20), endeavor to serve in the Great Commission (Mt 28:19-20), and engage in sharing the Gospel (Ro 1:16), we see God moving at work in lives, in families, in local churches, for the Church and to the glory of God, "not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." (2 Pe 3:9b ESV).

At LIFT: Engaging Gospel Movements Across Chicago, come to hear how God is at work in many local churches, in many communities across Chicago. Hear from dynamic Church leaders who will encourage you. Sit down over (a complimentary) lunch with a church leader you've never met to hear their story and encourage each other in ministry. Discover and share how God is at work across Chicago with hundreds of other Church leaders.

Keynote speakers include Rev. A.R. Bernard, Founding Pastor of a small Brooklyn parish that has grown into the largest house of worship in New York City, Christian Cultural Center, with over 45,000 members; and Pastor Mark Jobe, recently named the 10th President of Moody Bible Institute and Founding Pastor of New Life Community Church in Chicago that grew from a handful of people to thousands at over 25 campuses throughout Chicagoland and 7 cities internationally.

Pastors' Roundtable: The Church in Chicago: Featuring Rev. Wilfredo "Choco" De Jesus - New Life Covenant Church, Dr. Charlie Dates - Progressive Baptist Church, Jackson Crum - Park Community Church, and Mark Jobe - Moody Bible Institute & New Life Community Church. Chicago is a dynamic city, sometimes described as Manhattan slammed into Detroit, providing a challenging place to do effective ministry and a church that has historically been as racially divided at the rest of the city. Each of these pastors leads a dynamic ministry and as they share how God has led in their communities we can continue in ministry together as a Church engaged in the Gospel for the city.

Pastors' Roundtable: Engaging Church Movements: Featuring Rev. Dr. Adron Robinson - Hillcrest Baptist Church & Illinois Baptist State Association, Jon Ferguson - Community Christian Church & Exponential Conference; Jon Dennis - Holy Trinity Church, Redeemer City to City USA, Charles Simeon Trust & Chicago Partnership for Church Planting; Ron Zappia - Highpoint Church & Harvest Bible Fellowship; and Daniel Yang - SEND Institute.

The Church is larger than just the local church. Each of these panelists have served as working pastors in a local church and are engaged in Church movements across Chicago and around the globe. Hear how God has catalyzed movements, grown hundreds of young leaders for a new generation of ministry, planted hundreds of churches and is at work today. Garner insights and direction to hone the work and ministry in your local church.

The free one-day event includes a box lunch, additional breakout sessions, and times for worship and fellowship with other ministry leaders across Chicago.
