Upcoming Missional Church Seminar in Ankeny, Iowa

In late October I will be giving a Missional Church (Outreach and Evangelism) Seminar for the Ankeny Church of Christ in Ankeny, Iowa, a suburb of Des Moines. The seminar will be Fri., Oct. 26, 7-9 PM, and Sat., Oct. 27, 9 AM-2 PM. For a description of the seminar and the sessions, see

Let's pray that the missional movement can spread into Iowa! My wife is from this state, and a recent report from the Christian Chronicle said that there were only about 3000 members of churches of Christ in this state. Unbelievable. The need for mission in Iowa is very great. I am encouraged, however, by the heart of this congregation and I'm sure others like it in this state. God is at work, even when we sometimes struggle to see his hand.
