Small Town Summits – Western & Central Mass. @ The Moody Center
Oct 19 @ 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Small-town/rural New England pastors, lay leaders, and
Christian workers, here’s an initiative designed for you,
located close to you, and meant to learn from you.

Small Town Summits are small, local, affordable gatherings of Christians who long for God’s glory to spread throughout the small places of New England. We welcome pastors and lay leaders, men and women. Partnering with The Gospel Coalition New England, our Summits provide support, training, encouragement, and connection for New England churches beyond the urban centers.

Much of New England lies beyond the cities. Therefore, to reach this region for Christ many gospel workers must minister in the small places. We want to encourage and equip these faithful ministers. We don’t disdain the big conferences in the big cities with the well-known speakers (we attend and benefit from them). But our Summits are a bit different. We intend to go small: small conferences in small places for small-town Christian workers.

In common parlance, the term ‘summit’ describes a gathering of leaders for the purpose of making significant decisions. Our Summits gather pastors and ministry leaders within a State or region. We learn from one another as we pray and plan for gospel advance. We worship together, eat together, talk together, learn together, and pray together.

The goal of Small Town Summits is to see the small places of New England filled with healthy, missional, gospel-centered churches and Christian workers, for the glory of God.

“Small Town Summits are gatherings for small-town pastors and ministry leaders,
by small-town pastors and ministry leaders.”

Description

Christians in New England are Struggling. We wonder if the Gospelcan really make a difference here — the least churched, most post-Christian region of the country. But we know nothing is impossible withGod. In fact, Scripture tells us that He“is able to do immeasurably morethan all we ask or imagine!” (Eph. 3:20)

So, what can you imagine? On Saturday, October 19th, we will explorewhat it looks like for ordinary churches to become missional whole-lifedisciples in the places He sends us throughout the week—in ourworkplaces, in our schools, in our neighborhoods—on oureveryday“Frontlines.”

Our keynote speaker, Neil Hudson, brings a wealth of wisdom gained by working with hundreds of leaders, both in the UK and around the world, who want their churches to become whole-life disciple-making communities. He is a gifted speaker, author of Imagine Church (IVP,2012) and Scattered & Gathered (IVP, 2019), and a pastor for more than30 years. He understands first-hand the challenges and opportunities ofleading a local church in a post-Christian context.

We will also hear from local leaders who have been pursuing this visionin New England over the past several years. And we will give you timeand space to process the implications for your own unique context.

So whether you are a pastor or lay leader, you are invited. And don’t forget to bring your leadership team!

Individual: $30 each
Two or three: $25 each
Groups of 4+: $20 each

  • Limited Capacity: 25 in Sanctuary & 14 in Fellowship Hall
  • Masks & Social Distancing Required
  • Unfortunately, at this time research clearly indicates that singing and public speaking greatly increase the risk of spreading the virus.  Thus:
    • No singing (Music will be played)
    • No Fellowship Meal or Food Service of any kind
    • Everyone, including the pastor, will wear a mask

Please remember, the Guidelines were prayed over by your elders and pastor and they were carefully assembled with direct information from the CDC, our Government, and the State of Massachusetts – not out of fear, but out of caution, concern, and love for each other and our neighbors.  Even humming is “making a joyful noise unto the Lord!”  Amen?  And, the Bible affirms that worship and praise is a matter of the heart and spirit – so much more so than what noises we are allowed or advised not to make.
