Ekklesia Project – Go in Peace

Techny Towers ⁄ Northbrook, IL

This year's Ekklesia gathering is called Go in Peace: Church as Mission. Topics to be explored at this conference will include the missional identity of God, the ecclesial prerequisites of mission, the peaceable nature of Christian witness, and the missional dimensions of peace. We hope to shed gospel light on the perplexing cultural challenges facing the church in mission, and consider again the invitation to be the church in this challenging age.
Speakers at the event will include Gayle Gerber Koontz, Professor Emerita of Theology and Ethics at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary; Shane Claiborne, co-founder of The Simple Way, a new monastic community committed to building a neighborhood in Philadelphia; and Michael Gorman, professor at St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland, who also holds the Raymond E. Brown Chair in Biblical Studies and Theology.
