If you've ever sat around a fire, you've discovered that without some attention, a fire slowly dies. But if someone takes a few moments to stir that fire and add a log or two, it takes on new life. That's the heart behind our ACCELERATE events. These are content rich, one-day intensives aimed at providing you with vital training and information on the topics that will accelerate you as a leader. You'll discover best practices, receive relevant training, and learn how to respond to pressing cultural realities.

Rethinking Missional Contextualization
