I am excited to be able to invite you to Q in Portland this year. Q is one of the rare conferences that cuts across all sectors of culture and introduces you to amazing people who are pioneers in their field. Q exposes you to innovators who are creating culture through a lens of the Gospel and engaging the church in displaying the Kingdom of Christ in profound ways.
This year we have the privilege of hosting Q in Portland along with many other local leaders who are doing amazing things across the country. What I like most about Q is the community of people who come. The people sitting next to you are people who could be on the stage presenting. Artists, business leaders, social entrepreneurs, pastors and civic leaders who are leading the way in creating a new world for the sake of Christ.
Q is an experience that will equip you to think differently about the place that God has put you and it will inspire you to dream a new dream, as we seek together to display the Kingdom throughout the world. This really isn’t some cheesy sales pitch, I want you to come to Q because I truly believe it is one of those unique shaping influences that could alter the course of life and take you into a new sphere of mission.
The Gathering is in the Crystal Ballroom, one of Portland’s premier venues sitting just across the street from Powell’s Books, famous for being the nations largest independent bookstore (you will need a few hours just to make it through but it is totally worth your time). I love my city and I hope you will come experience Q with us.
Imago is hosting a half-day gathering for Pastors, if you can come early. It’s free and we would love to have you. We will discuss what our journey has been in engaging one of the nations least churched cities and working together with other churches, local government and business leaders and creating a culture of Gospel unity and mission here in Portland.
So if you are a leader in any field, if you have a dream for the Kingdom and if you want to build relationships with pioneers who are on the same journey you are, then make sure to sign up.
I am also teaching at Multnomah Seminary and have created a two credit class that will allow you to get seminary credit for coming which you can transfer to whatever seminary you attend. You can register until the conference begins April 27th.
Hope you see in Portland in April.
