Virtual Workshop: Serving Your Neighborhood Through the Built Environment (Phoenix)

Presenter: Sara Joy Proppe

Your physical place in your neighborhood matters and your property has the power to be a life-giving presence to all who encounter it, even those simply walking by on a weekday afternoon.

This session with Sara Joy Proppe will consider how our engagement with the built environment is a fundamental component of our calling to seek the welfare of the city.

This conversation is for anyone who is a steward of a place, including church properties, office buildings, or homes. This online workshop will include a short talk by Sara Joy Proppe and a brainstorming session about ways we can be creative placemakers in Phoenix.

The Biblical Story and the Western Story (Phoenix)

Presenter: Michael Goheen
October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT
Redemption Church, 2150 E Southern Ave
Tempe, AZ 85282

The Bible isn't a set of separate books or disjointed principals: it's a compelling drama that narrates the true story of the world. It gives meaning to all of life and a vision for the flourishing of creation. In these lectures, Michael Goheen will show how the Bible unfolds in six "acts"--from creation to restoration -- and tells the story of how God is on a mission to renew all things through Christ.

Goheen will show how the Biblical Story provides a life-giving contrast to the false stories of our time and the idols of culture. He will argue that we need to see the Bible as a unified, authoritative, story if we are going to be disciples, and make disciples, who contribute to the flourishing of God’s world.

This event will be held in partnership with the Surge Network.

Exegeting the City (Phoenix)

March 4, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm MST
Redemption Church, 2150 E Southern Ave
Tempe, AZ 85282

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Pastors are often trained in how to study the Bible, but we rarely have
opportunities to learn how to study our city. Exegeting the City is a full-day class
that will help us understand the history, design, challenges, and assets of
Phoenix. We will turn the city into a classroom as we visit a variety of
neighborhoods, buildings, museums, and organizations in our city.
This class will provide pastors with the opportunity to interact with city leaders,
business leaders, educators, historians, and others who can help us understand
Phoenix and the role of the church can play in contributing to the flourishing of
this place. This class will expose the pastors to the basic tools of exegeting a
city, neighborhood, or community. This immersion experience will seek to expose
the theological truth that we are our “brother’s keeper” and that “we reap what we
sow” for good and ill.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
1. Identify individual leaders, ministries, churches, and businesses, city leaders
who are doing substantial Kingdom work in the Valley and learn how we can be
shaped and partner with them.
2. Observe multiple theological perspectives and develop an appreciation for
how the whole church can provide theological perspectives that are like a
symphony making beautiful sounds to the Lord in benefit to our city.
3. Observe multiple contextual ministry philosophies with the purpose of learning
best practices and emerging trends.
4. Form new relationships with city leaders in the marketplace, the church, the
civic center, and among the poor.
5. Develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the city of Phoenix.
6. Identify various barriers and challenges the church of Phoenix faces in
addressing the needs of the city. Develop strategic partnerships and plans to
address them.
