GENERAL INFO

WHY
Feedback from the 2022 National Conference surfaced a need to:

> To experience the personal encouragement, connect with others of like-mind, and access the specialized equipping that Mosaix delivers to ministry leaders, more than once every three years.

> To bring their entire staff teams as well as key lay leadership to an in-person experience with Mosaix.

For this reason, these events are scheduled to take place on Saturdays.

THEME
In sailing, tacking is a maneuver used by mariners to keep a ship moving when winds have shifted from back to front and it’s otherwise unable to make forward progress. Similarly, cultural winds have shifted in our lifetime and for all intent and purposes our boat, the collective witness of the church, seems dead in the water. Why? In part because church sails remain fixed for past winds while ministry leaders wait in hope they’ll soon again shift. But they won’t. Those days are gone. We are no longer sailing with the wind at our backs... Cultural winds are against us. In order to advance the gospel, the local church, and the kingdom of God in this day and age as well as in years to come we need now to swing the boom. Indeed, we must tack to the wind. And that's what these events are all about.

WORKSHOPS A (Morning, 10:50a - 11:55a)

Juneteenth: Faith and Freedom
Rasool Berry
Faith and Freedom is an unscripted documentary that invites viewers into the story of Juneteenth, to learn how Scripture inspired the faith of enslaved people, and more about the holiday from the direct descendants of those liberated. In this workshop, Rasool will facilitate discussion together with Michael Owen from Our Daily Bread. Come screen a portion of the film and following discussion, consider how to leverage it within your own church or organizational context.

WORKSHOPS B (Afternoon, 1:15p-2:20p)

Understanding and Improving Your Cultural Intelligence
Harry Li
How can we authentically engage and more competently interact with diverse others? Faith-based application of an assessment known as CQ® (Cultural Intelligence) provides unique, encouraging, and data-driven understanding that is both biblically grounded and practically helpful. Join Harry to learn more about this tool and how it can help you measure and improve your own CQ® cand/or that of your organization.
