What to Expect at Always Forward 2016
The Always Forward 2016 Conference is designed to foster relationship building. We want you to not only engage with the training offered throughout the conference, but also engage one another, sharing ideas and experiences, successes and failures, blessings and hardship.
To that end, the conference begins with a lawn party at Breckenridge Brewery on Thursday, August 25th. Dress casually and come prepared to enjoy the company of friends, old and new, committed to the work of church planting throughout our Province.
As Anglicans, we are beautifully structured to work together in our churches, dioceses, and throughout the Province. We are excited to hear from one of our featured speakers, Archbishop Foley Beach, during this year’s conference. As Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America, he will share his personal experiences and discuss how church planting dove tails with the missional heart of our Anglican tradition.
Bishop Steve Breedlove, of the newly formed Diocese of Christ our Hope, will also join us as a featured speaker. Bishop Breedlove planted All Saints Church in Durham, NC in 2005. A “pastor’s pastor,” he is passionate about developing next-generation leaders and strengthening the local church in mission.
The conference offers four tracks from which to choose based on your church planting perspective.
