For those who believe sustainable change and church missions go together.

2017 SATtalks – Something for Everyone

The 2017 lineup of SATtalk presenters had something for everyone.  From Bob Lupton and Don Larson sharing how business can change the way we do missions to Grace Dyrness and Phill Hissom on the dignity behind Asset-based Community Development and Appreciative Inquiry as the way we engage the poor.  Lynette Fields and Jonathan Bell speak firsthand on how missions pastors can change the DNA of their church missions through an intentional, slow and steady process.  And you’ll hear from Mike Simon and Quinn Schipper on how the Church, using technology and collaboration, has become the catalyst for bringing a whole city together to prevent and alleviate poverty in relational and responsible ways.
