One of the most exciting gatherings of LCMS mission-minded people in decades will take place this June in Katy, Texas. It's the FiveTwo WikiConference, June 21-24, an event designed to stimulate church replication in a variety of ways. Whether you are a church planter, a sr pastor, a worship leader or a lay leader, considering missional communities or moving towards a multi-site model, forming a multiethnic ministry in the suburbs or downtown, starting new or seeking to revitalize, you'll meet others like yourself while learning from those who have gone where you want to go.
Bring your entire team! Lay leaders, staff, launch team, worship leaders, anyone involved in helping you lead a replicating and multiplying effort in your congregation.
In addition to large group plenary speakers like Alan Hirsch of "Forgotten Ways," we will also offer seven small group WikiTracks for individuals and teams. These tracks are geared to increase your replication quotient, providing "how" in a personal, applicable way.
1. Church Planting
2. Missional Communities
4. Revitalization for Replication
5. Worship Arts
6. Leadership & Coaching
FiveTwo is a church planting network led by five LCMS pastors: Ben Griffin, The Alley, Cottage Grove, MN; Mark Junkans, LINC, Houston, TX; Scott Rische, City Transformation Ministries, San Diego, CA; Nate Schaus, Summit Lutheran, Phoenix, AZ; and me, Bill Woolsey, CrossPoint Community Church, Katy, TX. We love our Lutheran church and want to see it make great in-roads among God's lost people of the United States.
