Lecture 1 | 10:15 am - 11 am 
Entering the Kingdom of God – How People Participate in the Mission of God

Participants will explore the fundamental meaning of Jesus’ teaching on the Kingdom of God and connect that teaching to the Mission of God in which the church and individual disciples are called to participate. Participants will identify several practical ways to participate in the Mission of God as a kingdom person.

Lecture 2 | 11:15 am - 12:30 pm 
Becoming the Gospel in Pauline Literature – How Congregations Participate in the Mission of God

This lecture will explore a few of the ways in which the gospel is formative for the church and the church’s witness to the world. Participants will connect Paul’s teaching on the gospel and the church to the Mission of God in which the church and individual disciples are called to participate. We will explore several practical ways in which the local congregation can missionally become the gospel.

We want to prepare for you. Register HERE for this year's symposium.
