Women's Peacemaking Conference - Day 1

Waging Peace in a Hostile World
Women’s 2 Day Conference

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." Matthew 5:9

We are living in anxious and polarized times. Anger, fear, and language that distances us from each other permeates American culture. Our homes, churches, workplaces, and city are in need of women who press into the hostility around them and with courageous compassion display God's peace.

Peacemaking isn't taking a middle road on issues and it is not avoiding difficult topics. Peacemaking is an intentional decision to discern and embody God's heart in the midst of division and conflict while displaying Jesus to all involved. Join us for Surge's first conference for women and consider what it means to use the leadership spaces God has given you to be a peacemaker in all areas of your life!

Friday, October 18th 6-9PM
Saturday, October 19th 9AM-3:30PM
$45/person

Guides not Experts - Training for Pastors and Leaders

Guides not Experts - Training for Pastors and Leaders

Speaker: Gavin Linderman

Title: Guides not Experts

The pressures of being a pastor can come from many directions. Oftentimes, pastors and leaders feel the pressure to have all the answers. Most would agree that this is not a healthy way of thinking, yet we still give in to the idea that we must be experts on all things. Through learning to practice the way of the Shepherd, we find that in fact, we should be quicker to ask questions and listen, then we are to give answers. As we work to form communities that are shaped by Jesus, it is important that we explore what it is to guide resting in the fact that the only Expert is Jesus. We invite you to come listen to what Jesus has to teach us about being guides, following in His footsteps.

Snacks and drinks provided.

August Women in Leadership LUNCH**

We will resume meeting on Thursday August 8th, but we will be changing the gathering to a lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

As summer winds down we’ll be spending time talking about a reset or fresh start. Summer is usually a time for vacations and getting away from it all. Taking time off for rest and relaxation is necessary, but it’s not always easy getting “back into the swing of things.” We'll discuss what a reset means for us and what scripture says about making things new. We'll also spend some time reconnecting after a few months off.

“No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and puts it on an old garment; otherwise he will both tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled out, and the skins will be ruined. But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.”

—Luke 5:36-38 (NASB)

August All Region Surge Gathering

August All Region Gathering

Peter Watts will be with us from Los Angeles talking about “Good News for a Mad City.” Peter is doing some great work helping bi-vocational church planters start churches in low-income communities. Peter is also the author of the new book "Prodigal Father" which narrates his 30 year journey of forgiveness and reconciliation after finding his own biological father on skid row after 30 years. His life and ministry is encouraging and we hope to have some good conversation with each other about how we can collectively work toward developing leaders in our congregations to display Jesus in all  parts of our city. 

About Peter Watts:

In 2008 Pastor Watts and his family planted The Rock Church where he pastors and he is the current Regional Vice President of World Impact. After 20 years in public education Peter went to Fuller Seminary where he completed a Masters in Theology and currently is a doctoral candidate at Fuller Seminary studying under Dr. Soong-Chan Rah in the school of Theology with an emphasis on Urban Ministry.  Pastor Watts has been married for 24 years to Dr. Didi Watts and has three children Jasmin (27), Avery (23), and Imani (19).

May All Region Surge Gathering

All Region Gathering

Pastors and Ministry Leaders,
I love when we get the chance a few times a year to gather all from our different regions to be together, learn together, and eat a meal. I am really looking forward to this last lunch before our break and hope you can join us. These Surge gatherings are times we are privileged to show hospitality to one another as we learn more about what God is up to in the lives and ministries of our fellow co-laborers.

Please RSVP, feel free to bring your entire team or a pastor you know is new to their role or our city. 

Speaker: Brian Dye
Brian desires to be part of a national movement of disciple-making and church planting in urban centers of America. He serves as the Director for The Legacy Conference and is also an elder of Legacy Christian Fellowship, a church planting movement seeking to launch a house church in each of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods by 2020. He has served as Mentorship Director at GRIP since 2011. Brian has been married to his best friend and ministry partner, Heidi, since July 2000.

His Final Words (Matthew 28:16-20)
Jesus chose 12 ordinary individuals with ordinary occupations and made them into fully devoted disciples that would impact the world. In his final words before leaving the earth, he calls his newly formed disciples to do the same. They were not to find disciples to give ministry roles too; they were to make disciples to give ministry roles too.
