TransFORM Network (http://www.transformnetwork.org) and The Parish Collective (http://www.parishcollective.org) are joining forces to host a West Coast regional gathering on missional community formation, Friday-Saturday, April 29-30, 2011, at Mars Hill Graduate School in Seattle, Washington.
Launched in Fall 2009, TransFORM held its first regional gathering earlier this year in Washington, D.C., which was attended by around 250 people. Participants in that gathering took up an impromptu collection to help fund a similar West Coast Gathering, which yielded $1,000 to help get this April 2011 event off the ground.
The Parish Collective, which began in Fall 2008, held a series of city-wide gatherings (in conjunction with Forge Canada) in June 2010 in four Pacific Northwest cities — Edmonton, Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland.
As the network organizers for TransFORM and The Parish Collective, we are very excited to be working together now on a regional event to focus on training and mobilizing people to form missional communities of practice with a special emphasis on rootedness in neighborhoods and a robust theology of place.
