In an increasingly post-Christian society, today’s church has gradually recognized its greatest mission field is its own neighborhood. This drive toward local missions has captured the attention of many churches and the hearts of believers searching to impact their world for Christ.
Alan Hirsch, an insightful leader within this movement, will address current issues and lead a practical discussion on systems thinking and recalibration for organizations seeking to bring others into a life of outreach and community engagement.
Alan Hirsch is the founding director of Forge Mission Training Network. Currently he co-leads Future Travelers, an innovative learning program helping megachurches become missional movements. Known for his innovative approach to mission, Alan is considered to be a thought-leader and key mission strategist for churches across the Western world.
Hirsch is the author of The Forgotten Ways; co-author of The Shaping of Things to Come, ReJesus and The Faith of Leap. (with Michael Frost); Untamed (with Debra Hirsch); Right Here, Right Now (with Lance Ford); On the Verge (with Dave Ferguson); and The Permanent Revolution (with Tim Catchim).
His experience includes leading a local church movement among the marginalized, developing training systems for innovative missional leadership, and heading up the mission and revitalization work of his denomination.
