Mennonite Mission Network is sponsoring an event at the Arca de Salvacion church in Fort Myers, Florida, April 6-8. With the title of SENT, the meeting will involve more than 100 Mennonite mission-minded, Jesus-following leaders in a church planting summit. There will be church planters, groups and individuals testing the call, missional entrepreneurs, outreach experimenters, pastors, missiologists, and conference leaders.
Jim and Jodi Ostlund, church planting couple at Journey@McPherson, will be presenting two seminars, describing the campus church, and the multisite church. They will draw upon their current experience in planting a congregation in a supermarket building being remodeled in stages, with an attendance up to 200. Several persons from south Texas are also expected to attend the conference as participants.
