The 2011 Conference
We invite you to attend the 9th annual Santa Barbara Mission Conference, presented by the Presbytery of Santa Barbara and First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara. The conference takes place Saturday, January 15, 2011 at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara. Our goals in the mission conference are to inform and inspire, so that you leave the conference moved by God’s Spirit, eager to serve Christ in the local community and in the greater world.
The theme this year is “Missional Church: the Journey Continues.” We’re very happy to have Dr. Steve Hayner, the President of Columbia Theological Seminary, as our keynote speaker. With us will be other experts on this and related topics: Pat Taylor Ellison, Hunter Farrell, and Sharol Hayner.
A highly qualified group of teachers and church leaders, in addition to our speakers, comprise the presenting team at the conference. They will lead the workshops, giving you tools, resources, and motivation for you to be missional in your churches, your communities, and in the wider world.
Look through our website to become familiar with all that the conference offers. We encourage you to register and then be with us on Jan. 15, to be part of this wonderful gathering of people in God’s mission.
