Shameless Plug for ‘Pastorum’ (a terrific missional church conference at which I am speaking)

May I make a shameless plug recommending Pastorum, a conference on missional church at which I am speaking?


The blurb reads:

You’re invited to join 10 internationally-recognized scholars [true in almost every case but me… sadly]… in Chicago to study the purpose of the church, from Genesis to Revelation, so that you’re better equipped to lead and teach well.

It’s really excellent: over two days we cover the Biblical story, from Genesis to Revelation, at a level that is missional, practical and scholarly. I recommend it with a full heart, especially to preachers, leaders and educators. If you can’t attend, you can purchase the vids from Logos Bible Software (these guys are running the conference) after the event on the logos website. I hope you can come… in one way or another!

Deets: Chicago, April 11-12, 2013.
