COVID-19 Update: The 2020 MA Annual Collaborative has been cancelled. Stay tuned for info regarding 2021!
May 5-8 2020 | Southern CT
As practicing missional ecclesiologists, we value learning from and with each other at Mission Anabaino. In addition to the papers being presented at our annual collaborative, we have built in discussions and free time so that we might be inspired and encouraged by sharing with one another. MA is committed to coaching and supporting church planters, assessing and developing interns, fostering a church planting culture, and cultivating and allocating resources toward church planting. MA also builds collegial relationships among church planters with outside entities, networks, and partners.
Our 2020 theme is focused on the "Missional Pastor." Each session will be presented by an MA Church Planter in the context of missional ecclesiology and church planting, and will include facilitated large group collaboration, and the opportunity for smaller break out groups. Our MA multi-congregational host church this year is Christ Presbyterian Church Southern CT (CPC New Haven, CPC in the Hill, CPC Fairfield, CPC Wallingford, and CPC Milford). We'll experience an evening of worship on-site in this local context on Wednesday evening, and enjoy a city excursion to the Hill. All meals and scheduled activities are included during the collaborative.
