If you’re ready to create a missional culture at your church — one where parishioners are empowered to live out God’s mission in their community — Kanuga’s 2012 Church Leadership Conference is a must-attend event.

Explore real life, practical ways to transform your parish into a missional church. It’s time to stop doing church better and start being church better.

Workshops and group discussions will offer strategies for shifting the parish culture to support a more outward, community focus, with an emphasis on building parish enthusiasm for this shift as well as on helping individuals bring a missionary mindset to their daily lives.

Particular attention will be paid to the two primary ingredients for culture-building:

creating a shared language and discerning and celebrating God’s call to your congregation.
