The Great Spiritual Migration Tour (USA) – for pastors and lay leaders

The Christian story, from Genesis until now, is fundamentally about people on the move—outgrowing old, broken religious systems and embracing new, more redemptive ways of life. It’s time to move again. In his new book, The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to be Christian, Brian McLaren invites you to seize the moment and set out on the most significant spiritual pilgrimage of our time: to help Christianity become more Christian.

Join us for “An Afternoon with Brian McLaren,” a leadership-oriented gathering for clergy and lay leaders hosted in seventeen cities around the US. This gathering will run from 1:00-4:30 p.m. and requires a ticket. ($99 for individuals, $60 for groups of four to nine, $50 for ten or more.) More information here.

The ticket for the afternoon event includes a free copy of Brian’s newest book for the first 24 registrants in each city ($15.75 value). Participants will also receive the following:

Free downloads of exciting new music for your congregation from the Convergence Music Project.
A free download of Brian’s Through-the-Bible podcast (a $25 value) and audio Bible Overview series (a $100 value).
Access to other free and discounted resources.

If you would like to come but can’t afford the registration, just email for scholarship information.

Then at 7:30 p.m., invite everyone for a reading and presentation from Brian on The Great Spiritual Migration. There is no cost for this evening event. Brian will be available to sign copies of his book, which you can purchase at the event.
Who Should Attend: If you’re a long-time fan of Brian’s work, this will be an ideal opportunity to hear his latest thinking. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, this will be an excellent introduction. The afternoon is geared toward Christian pastors and lay leaders, but faith leaders from other traditions will also find the afternoon relevant, practically helpful, and inspiring. And all are invited to the evening session.
Schedule: We’re packing the maximum amount of value into the half-day seminar. Here’s what’s planned:

Introduction: My Migration and Yours: After leading in an opening exercise of prayer and reflection, you’ll be introduced to the concept of migration.
Session 1: Your Personal Migration: You’ll think through your own process of spiritual migration so far, and imagine what’s next. Plus – Q & R.
Session 2: Your Congregational Migration: What are the options for your congregation as it moves into the future? This session will feature a pop-up interview and/or Q & R.
Session 3: Your (trans)Denominational Migration: What role will denominations play in the years ahead? Also – Q & R.
Conclusion: Brian will lead in a time of prayer, song, and meditation to end the day.
