On the Verge

I try not to be too self-serving in my posts, but this was too good to pass up. If you've never heard of Verge, it's a conference and ministry whose mission is to encourage and equip "Gospel-centered missional communities". I admit to finding them by accident through their YouTube channel. I'm an unashamed Francis Chan junkie, but I discovered more there than just Chan: tips on how to be missional, other speakers/authors like Alan Hirsch and Matt Carter, and through their links, articles on building missional communities, how to build a culture of disciples making disciples, and so on.

So here's the deal. I want to go to their conference this year. I'm not interested in any specific speaker, or checking out the music scene of Austin, but I want to fellowship with others who are like-minded to seek and save the lost, make disciples who make disciples, and practice the pure and faultless religion of taking care of orphans, widows and our communities in need.

I've already been piling on to my reading list thanks to Verge: For the City by Darrin Patrick and Matt Carter and Building a Discipling Culture and Covenant and Kingdom by Mike Breen. Now I want to learn practicals- hands on and first hand from those doing it.

So here's what I need from you. Follow Verge on Facebook. Then when all the entry blogs are posted, vote for your favorite. It's that simple. Thanks for your support!
