“Weird Church Camp,” a gathering of leaders discussing how to lead the church in the future, is scheduled for Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 in Estes Park, Colorado.
There is a growing movement of leaders developing creative expressions of faith communities all over the United States. As innovators they face questions of legitimacy as well as funding barriers from the institutions that they represent. Many feel isolated and misunderstood. They are searching for a learning community where they can show up in their fullness, share stories, ideas, failures and best practices as well as spiritual connection. There is also a growing number of leaders in traditional churches who are searching for ways to connect the gospel with a post-Christian culture, but they lack the framework and practices to begin experimenting in new ways. They are looking for inspiration and ideas.
Weird Church Camp will gather this diaspora of leaders for three days in the beauty of the Rocky Mountains to begin to build those connections and develop a rich learning community. Unlike other training events, this camp will be a time of true Sabbath, where they listen deeply to one another and the Spirit within. It will be a time of renewal, spiritual practice, play, inspiration and learning. These 75 - 100 leaders will be empowered to return to their ministry settings with fresh ideas and a renewed commitment to be the change that they wish to see in the world.
The cost is $269, plus three nights of meals and lodging.
