I have been thinking about coordinating a ‘Discovery Tour’ around the middle of next year, the idea being that we grab a few potential church planter/missionary types from over here and do a ‘tour’ of a range of new ‘churches’ on the eastern seaboard to observe what is happening and to learn from their leaders.
I am thinking tying it in with the National Emerging Church Conference that we are running in June (25th – 26th) would be a good plan.
Maybe 10 guys – 3 days in Melbourne – 2 days at the conference – 2 days in Sydney and then 2 in Brisbane.
It could be an inspiring and valuable learning time. There are a heap of really imaginative and effective approaches to mission and church being implemented in those places.
