Made to Flourish will host its Common Good Conference October 5, in host sites around the country. We want to offer seminary students a 50% discount to attend the conference. Please let your students know about this opportunity to learn outside the classroom! Contact me for more information on how to extend the discount price offer at your school.
The Common Good Conference provides a space for churches to gather with their people to help equip them to better connect Sunday to Monday. Speakers will include a mix of pastors (Bryan Loritts, Larry Osborne, Tom Nelson), business leaders and entrepreneurs (Helen Hayes, Thomas Kim, Winnette Mcintosh, Robin John), and scholars (Karen Ellis). Local speakers at each conference site will also connect the conversation to the local community.
- How can I understand a sense of God’s calling wherever I work?
- How do I follow Jesus at work in a post-Christian culture?
- How can we as the church multiply opportunity for all (especially the vulnerable)?
- How do we be champions of human dignity in our work?
- How can the church be a faithful presence in our communities?
This conference is designed for anyone looking to connect faith in Christ to the work they do every day, whether paid or unpaid. The Made to Flourish team has curated a diverse lineup of speakers from around the country, from pastors to business leaders, to explore how to be a church for Monday and not just Sunday.
The conference invites everyone to join a conversation about the common good — a subject too often not addressed directly, especially among Christians. What is the common good? Is pursuing it optional? Where do we start?
By bringing pastors and congregational leaders together for an innovative and interactive learning experience, the Common Good Conference will empower the local church as a primary agent of cultural renewal for the common good.
Tickets are $39 until September 15. You can register here.
