Foursquare NextGen Summit

December 28, 2007 by

Foursquare NextGen SummitI’m here in Anaheim, Calif. through January 1 for the Foursquare NextGen Summit. It’s an event with 3,500 students centered around three causes: poverty, orphans and human trafficking. My role at Foursquare made way for me to be a part of the core planning team over the past 18 months. What a ride it has been! I am also doing a workshop titled “Church Marketing Goodness.” It will be a different audience than I am used to–students and youth leaders–so I am looking forward to seeing how people respond. I am going to use some stuff that I first tried out at the MinistryCOM conference this past September, but tweak it to be more personal than professional. The foundation will be Matthew 5 and Matthew 10.

If you live in the SoCal area, the evenings are free so please drop in and check it out!

    I use to pastor youth at a foursqaure church and had been trying to get our denomination to do this very thing for over 5 years. Good luck with this summit. Our denomination needs to be more socially active.

    I am one of those Foursquare youth pastors that are in total disagrement with the National Youth Office’s enamorment with the Emergent Movement. May of the speakers at the Summit were indeed Emergents, some were non-christians! This is sad, dangerous and appaling indeed. The following site has a lot to say about this heretical movement. So for starters, see the writeup on Shane Claiborne.

    Here, here on disappointment that FourSquare jumped the emergent fence.
