Registration closes January 15

As a pastor or lay person have you ever dreamed of doing a totally new thing for God? Maybe you haven’t told anyone because it seems impossible compared to your ministry today. You’re not alone. God is calling people for a time such as this to create new places for new people in Missouri. New faith communities can take a variety of forms, like a recovery ministry that meets monthly or worship service that gathers weekly. Church can happen in many settings. We invite you to discern how God might be calling you to start something new. 
On Friday, January 25, 2019, a select group of innovators will gather in Columbia, Missouri, for a Discernment Retreat hosted by the Missouri Conference Center for Congregational Excellence to dream and pray about creating new places for new people in Missouri. During this time of retreat we’ll hear from successful new place planters, share innovative ideas and learn about resources to plant in Missouri. Join us in dreaming together.
