Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

LA 2010: Speaker Themes – Deb Hirsch

With LA 2010 right around the corner, I will be posting specific ways that people are going to address our theme of discipleship. I will share the title of their talk, the talk in a sentence and the talk in a paragraph. For a full list of the speakers and details about this UNconference, check out this LA 2010 post. Please RSVP for this event on our facebook event page. We have a seating capacity, so those who register on facebook will have first priority.  Here is what Deb Hirsch will be addressing.

Title: Evangelship

Talk in a Sentence: Redefining evangelism in the context of discipleship.

Talk in a Paragraph: We are called to disciple the nations. Why have we limited our ‘discipleship’ to Christians, within the context of the four walls of the church, and made it predominantly about issues of personal morality? The great commission frees us from this restrictive view of discipleship. Old models of Evangelism will look remarkably different if understood and redefined within the context of the great commission – and what if our role was to disciple everyone, everywhere – even if they are not aware of it?

Deb Hirsch is a conference speaker, church leader and writer. While co-leading a church in Melbourne, Australia she also pioneered a ministry to the GLBTQ community. She is the author (with Alan Hirsch) of Untamed: Reactivating a Missional Form of Discipleship. She currently serves as a minister of Tribe of LA, a group of missional artist and vagabonds. She will not only be speaking at LA 2010, but co-hosting this event with me.

    found your site through Jason Coker’s…

    anyways, just wanted to throw out a +1 for the whole “Evangelship” idea – I have not referred to it that way before, but definitely speaking the language of my personal kardia/heart – the resonation is there for sure.

    Glad you guys are bringing Deb out for the conference. I am way out hurr in Nashville, but will be “tweading”, that is following twitter and reading blogs, to catch a glimpse of how it all goes down.

    Best wishes with all this!

    Justin
