Church Has Left the Building

Mustard Seed Associates are sponsoring “The Church Has Left The Building”, a conference in Seattle in April. The gathering is another event in which Tom and Christine Sine gather together people who are developing innovative, out-of-the-box approaches to missional church.

Conference Goals

  • Inspire and challenge participants to seek first Gods purposes in a world of growing need.
  • Create an environment that enables people to connect with one another and even to create some collaborative new ventures.
  • Enable participants to create new ways to grow God’s mustard seeds in their own lives and communities so they have new ideas to take home.
  • Invite participants to share stories and mustard seeds before they arrive so that we can selectively incorporate them in the conference send us your stories right away so we can share with others how God is using your mustard seed to make a difference
