WHAT'S A MAGIC BULLET ANYWAY?
We hate to break it to you, but there are no magic bullets. When it comes to life and ministry, it's easy to find yourself exhausted from searching for a "quick-fix". Ironically, it's the freedom from this search, made available to us through Jesus, that invites us away from all the exhaustion and hurriedness and allows us to meet others where they are.
"Listen, the (Slow Down) Workshop is not about some more content to file away. It's about putting tried and tested tools in the hands of those that are ready to step in the work God is calling them to. Only do this if you want action and movement."
- Alex Wickell
Pastor at The Branch, Chicago, IL
EXPERIENCE A MINISTRY PARADIGM SHIFT
We're sure you've read all the books, attended all the conferences, and heard all the sermons. We have too so we understand your skepticism. We didn't design the Slow Down Workshop to be added to a growing list of forgotten seminars. Rather, we invite you to come re-envision gospel, community, and mission through the lens of Jesus. Our hope is that this experience will help you to find rest, slow down, and begin inviting others who are uninterested in the church into the freedom and family of Jesus.
Die to the "magic bullet" and find rest from the tyranny of performance and success. The world doesn't need the curated version of you.
Cast off the hurriedness of ministry keeping you from slowing down with others. Discover that less is more and slow really is fast.
Reclaim the ancient, minimalist ways found in the scriptures and begin inviting others into the freedom and family of Jesus.
"Sometimes, I go to conference events and feel like I'm being polished. At the the Slow Down Workshop, it was more like being recast. I am thankful."
- Daniel Moore / Raleigh, NC
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS WORKSHOP?
The Slow Down Workshop takes a serious look at the current spiritual climate in the West while taking a deep dive into the scriptures regarding the spread of the message, medium, and mission of Jesus that turned the world upside down. Over the course of a handful of hours you'll hear teaching, participate in discussion, and have time to reflect on your own life and context regarding the spread of the Message, Medium, and Mission of Jesus to those uninterested in the church.
Turns out God is not the celestial bookkeeper in the sky. In fact, religion and irreligion don't really matter to him at all. He's more like a dad who delights to throw parties for reckless and rebellious sons and doesn't care what his uptight neighbors think about it.
Families formed by grace are free to ditch the posturing and pretending we're all well versed in. Instead, we're free to exhibit and practice the incessant love and indiscriminate belonging that drew us to the table in the first place.
While only 17% of church goers have heard of and can articulate what the Great Commission is, we love to consider what life could like for us all if we stopped believing the kingdom was something we needed to build or advance, but rather enjoyed and declared.
