June 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
Pray for the Orality Component for the Amplify 2017 Conference being sponsored by the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College in partnership with Mission America Coalition. Amplify is a 3-day event where we will reimagine an evangelism for our day that is winsome, soulful, creative, and deeply grounded in scripture. Amplify will feature a mix of plenary speakers, case studies, research, breakout sessions, tracks, and networking times intended to meet the needs of everyone who attend. Amplify is for anyone in a church leadership position or in a position outside the local church setting where you are seeking to weave an evangelism ethos into your own life or the lives of others. The conference is intended to equip and inspire you personally and as you lead others in developing a lifestyle of gospel witness.
Registration includes access to the conference. You are responsible for your own lodging, transportion, and meals. There are dozens of hotels and restaurants within walking distance of the event.
When you register, please select a track that you will be attending during the conference.
Creative Arts Track – Includes ORALITY
Without question, we live in a time when visual communication, storytelling, and empathetic connection are top cultural currencies. Marketplace enterprises over the last decades have used this currency to their designed ends, but the Christian mission enterprise on the whole has not. The Creative Arts track will bring together creatives and non-artistic leaders in order to primarily equip those who don’t know what to do with creatives and artist by providing an (1) understanding of creatives and the creative arts and (2) understanding of the strategic role they must play in the mission enterprise. Come and consider, perhaps for the first time, how to operate in the heart language of our culture.
