Heart to Heart with David Platt


David Platt

2016 Mission Leaders Conference
Executive Leadership

During the first 30 minutes of this session David will present the processes, challenges, tensions and outcomes of the mammoth refocusing and early retirement measures he initiated at the IMB last year. He will relate what leadership decisions like these entail and produce. The second part of the session will be open microphone, where the audience is given opportunity to ask questions of David – and he of them! This segment is designed as a back-and-forth peer-level voicing of observations, ideas, and implications of change affecting mission agencies across North America.

Rites of Passage: Building a Mobilization Team in Your Church

Rites of Passage is a foreign concept to most evangelical churches, literally and figuratively. Somewhere along the way, the local church has lost this important value. Rites of passage are still common among institutions like fraternities and sororities, military and civic organizations. A few church traditions have kept this concept of development for their youth and new converts. The Catholic Church has baptism, catechism, and first Communion. The Jewish bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah still help young people move along the pathways of their faith. The Mormons (LDS) have elderships, Melchizedek priesthood, and the ever-present two-year mission after high school.
