Leadership Webinar

We’re taking our leadership teleconference series to the next level with a webinar. You’ll now be able to see our speaker! To kick off this momentous occasion, we are pleased to have Brian Sanders join us.

Brian is the founder and executive director of the Underground Network, an international coalition of missional churches united by the prophetic call to love the poor, reach the lost, and seek biblical justice. Brian’s book Underground Church is a fascinating and challenging story of a network of missionally-oriented “micro-churches” in Tampa, Florida, and the values and activities that drive this missional enterprise. Brian, his wife, Monica, and their six children currently live in Belfast, Ireland.

His voice and passion are needed in our world today and in our churches. Brian is no mere theorist. He is a practitioner. And for ten years, the Underground Network has nurtured a laboratory of hundreds of micro-churches in Tampa, Florida, where people dreamed of how to be the church and how to experience the reality of the Kingdom of God in our midst. It’s an amazing story! And, Brian is looking forward to leading this time.

Get the book, Underground Church by Brian Sanders, read it, and then join us on March 21, at 11:00 am PDT. Bring a curious mind and questions about the church, mission, evangelism, the marginalized, missional communities, etc. It will be good to hang out together for an hour or so and to be led by a man of great passion, integrity, and love for God and the church. This will be fun!

Plan to join us by signing up at the link below! An email will be sent out to you a few days prior to the event with a link to access the webinar. If you have any questions, please contact either Kent Carlson or Lisa Schmidt.

Each webinar is an opportunity for pastors, leaders, and guests across the NAB to discuss a book or concept with authors or experienced leaders. The webinars will be held multiple times a year. Two of them each year will cover books concerning the church, leadership, and formation. These webinars are a chance for the author to respond to our questions. Other webinars will center on discussions with leaders in the church, covering difficult theological and cultural topics that are timely. Many have found it helpful to read and discuss the books beforehand with a group of three or four leaders.
