7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern
Leader: Mark DeYmaz
An increasingly diverse and cynical society will no longer find credible the mere explanation of theological truth apart from effective community engagement. Advancing the common good, then, and thus the very Gospel, itself, must involve more than mere words, and the building of large congregations filled with people of a similar race, class, or cultural background. In this present future, our common confession must be validated by concrete action and accompanying measurable results along spiritual, social and economic fronts. Indeed this is the expectation of Christ in Matthew 5:16 and of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:10. Whether you're in an existing church or soon-to-be church planter, don't miss this first ever presentation designed to help you advance disruption innovation, effective community engagement, and maximize your church's influence in the community.
Mark DeYmaz, a recognized leader in the Multi-ethnic Church Movement, planted the Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas in 2001 where he continues to serve as Directional Leader. In 2004, he co-founded the Mosaix Global Network with Dr. George Yancey and today serves as its president, and convenor of the triennial National Multi-ethnic Church Conference. Mark has written six books including his latest, “Disruption: Repurposing the Church to Redeem the Community” (Thomas Nelson, March 2017). He is an Adjunct Professor at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, and teaches D.Min. courses at seminaries across the country including TEDS, Western, and Phoenix, where he earned his own D.Min. in 2006.
