Though I’m one year into church planting with Immanuel, I know that I have a lot to learn in order to lead the church plant more effectively. In light of this, I signed up for a Church Planting Boot Camp being sponsored by the Acts 29 Network. Here is a rundown of the sessions and speakers :

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Session #1: “Leading the Mission” – Darrin Patrick
Session #2: “Preaching the Mission” – Mark Driscoll
Session #3: “Missional & Biblical Church Planting” – Ed Stetzer
Session #4: “Kingdom-Focused Church Planting ” – Ed Stetzer

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Session #5: “Church Planting Evangelism” – Mark Dever
Session #6: “Gospel-Centered Theology” – Mark Driscoll
Session #7: “Vision for Church Planting” – Scott Thomas
Session #8: Question and Answer with planters Darrin Patrick and Scott Thomas

Darrin Patrick is Pastor and Founder of The Journey in St. Louis, MO
Mark Driscoll is Pastor of Mars Hill Church and President of Acts 29
Ed Stetzer is Director of Lifeway Research
Mark Dever is Pastor of Captiol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC
Scott Thomas is Pastor of Global Church Missions of Mars Hill Church & Director of Acts 29

I really want to be sharpened through this experience, and despite some of these men being relatively young, I know that they bring with them plenty of experience in missional thinking and gospel-centered theology. Since Immanuel’s desire is to be a gospel-centered, missional church, I think this conference will be especially helpful.
