9 am - 3:30 pm Lunch Included

Our theme this year is LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. The Greater Northwest Area's INNOVATION AND VITALITY TEAM will be leading us throughout the day, in worship, plenary session, conversations and workshops revolving around the three key practices that we believe are present in every vital congregation. These practices are namely, INCLUSION, INNOVATION and MULTIPLICATION.

We have picked the theme, LOVE THY NEIGHBOR to celebrate what God is already doing in our faith communities in the ways we are loving and engaging our neighbors as well as to spark further our imagination towards what is still possible about God's trans-formative work in our neighborhoods. To this end, four workshops will be offered, namely: Faith-based Community Organizing, Asset Based Community Development, Intercultural Competency, and Intentional Multiplication.

The Early-bird registration is $20 per person until March 15 and $30 per person thereafter. ($30 at the door) There are scholarships available for those who cannot otherwise afford to attend. To request a scholarship, please contact Hollie, hswanson@pnwumc.org or (206) 870-6814.

Childcare Available, be sure to fill out information on your registration!

Workshops that will be held at Roots & Wings:

The Culture Shaping Church
Rev. Dr. Leroy Barber, Director of Innovation for an Engaged Church
Take a look at creative ideas on how the church can engage culture through new models to understand their communities. Using innovative approaches like co-work spaces, coffee shops, food trucks, and affordable housing as connection points to everyday life. We will look at ways for the church to be present seven days a week.
Cultural Self-Awareness, the first step to becoming an Inclusive Church
Ms. Kristina Gonzalez, Director of Innovation for an Inclusive Church
This is counter-intuitive. Isn’t the first step to becoming an inclusive church inviting diversity into our midst? Not really. We have a tendency to expect that little changes in our music or liturgy will entice younger or more diverse people into our midst. But it doesn’t work mostly. So, what will? Come explore why this counter-intuitive statement is the first ingredient in the recipe for inclusion.
Hidden in Plain Sight
Rev. Shalom Agtarap, Associate Director of Innovation for a New Church
“If only we had more young people…” "If only our pastor let us…" "If only my congregation would…” These are common refrains that can leave us feeling powerless, without resources, and maybe even worse, that we're alone in wanting to transform the world in Christ's name. By prioritizing relational meetings in the community, we find an abundance of gifts and ministry potential hidden in plain sight all around us!
A Culture of Intentional Multiplication
Rev. Dr. William D. Gibson, Director of Innovation for a New Church | Team Leader
What does it mean to embody a culture of multiplication? Fortunately for the church, we can look to Jesus’ instructions to the disciples, which we know as the “Great Commission.” Intentional multiplication is how the Methodist Movement spread across a young America. When our values, narrative, and behaviors align, we make disciples that make disciples, develop leaders that develop leaders, and create new places for new people that create new places for new people.
