Multi-Housing Luncheon

We are hosting a luncheon for you to come and hear about ways we can partner together to reach these communities with the Gospel of Jesus. There is no charge and lunch is free. All you need to do is show up.

During the luncheon, you will hear from Janice Austin, the point person for Multi-Housing in Mobile, who can help you build relationships with the community, help train your leaders, and offer coaching throughout the process. We will also have Rick Barnhart and Kristy Kennedy from ALSBOM present to share resources that will help you meet the specific needs of your communities. The date and location for the event is below.
 

Monday, April 25, 2016               11:30 a.m.          Government Street Baptist Church



Multi-Housing Learning Labs 

Each lab will be made up of 10-15 people including pastors, church leaders, multi-housing strategists, student missionaries, and others simply trying to sharpen their understanding of the multi-housing culture. All labs are a day and a half format and are intended to give a small group of participants a strong experience in communities doing multi-housing ministry with a minimum of classroom experience learning multi-housing. We’re going to have a good time, tell a lot of people about Jesus, and hopefully learn a little about how we can better start “missional communities” within the multi-housing culture. 

April 8 – 9, 2016                                            Biloxi, MS

May 4 – 5, 2016                                             Tuscaloosa, AL

June 8 – 9, 2016                                             Tuscaloosa, AL

September 21 – 22, 2016                              Tuscaloosa, AL 

I hope these events will give you some ideas that will strengthen your strategy to disciple the most “unreached and unsought” in our country. We hope you will be there.  Feel free to bring your key leaders.
