Acts 29 Italy - Milan Conference 1-2-3/12/2011

Acts 29 Western Europe

Tomorrow Stefano will participate to 
the first 3-days Acts 29 Italian Conference 
in Milan.
He will also bring with him 3 men from San Lazzaro church who will come as a starting point for their training with the Porterbrook course.
About 70 pastors, church planters and students will participate from all of Italy.

Mission and Vision of Acts 29 

The Mission of Acts 29 is to band together Christian, Evangelical, Missional & Reformed churches, who, for the sake of Jesus and the gospel, plant new churches and replant dead and dying churches across the world. This work is done in obedience to the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20), with the goal of seeing millions of lives changed by the power of the gospel.

Acts 29 Network exists to build a unifying and an uncommon alliance of smaller networks to advance the mission of Jesus through church planting churches. We are planting churches that are missionaries in their respective communities sent by Jesus with the gospel (John 20:21). It is our commitment to focus our efforts on planting multiplying churches and training leaders. 

The main speacker will be Brian Wilson from The Crowded House in Tasmania, Australia and we'll have a series of video messages of  Steve Timmis who was unable to come due to health reasons.

The main theme will be Total Church

Steve Timmis is the co-founder of 
an international group of church planting networks, and the co-director of the  
an initiative that trains church planters. 
He's also the director of Acts 29 in Western Europe and the co-author of Total Church.

Info about the book

Total Church pleads for two key principles for church and mission. First, the gospel as content: being word-centred (for the gospel is truth) and being mission-centred (for the gospel is truth to be proclaimed). Secondly, the community as context: sharing our lives as Christians and offering a place of belonging to unbelievers.
