What is the gathering church for?

Keynote Presentation, WFX 2013
Glenn Packiam, Lead Pastor, New Life Downtown

We have the ability to be in multiple places at once, to speak to masses at the stroke of a thumb. Yet ministry is about the personal and the local; it takes its cues from the world of sheep and pastures not tweets and bloggers. Is there a way to reconcile these tensions? How can we retain the sacredness of our vocation while inhabiting these new “social spaces”? Let’s explore these questions together, inviting the Spirit to lead us in the Way.
