Summary of the Initiative
This is an invitation to audacity—
to believe that the Gospel is transformative today,
and that God’s Spirit is at work in the particularity
and uniqueness of our neighborhoods.
There is an amazing movement of love, compassion, and restoration springing up in the everyday life
of neighborhoods all over North America. The Nav Neighbors Initiative is your invitation to develop the practices and partnerships you need for joining in on what God is doing in the place you live.
This initiative is a collaborative partnership between The Navigators’ Nav Neighbors Mission and Parish Collective that will develop your capacity for living out the Gospel naturally and relationally in your locality. You will learn practical ways for growing faithful presence, fostering missional engagement, and lead- ing with others in transformative discipleship in the neighborhood. The practical training includes:
Field visits to enhance understanding the neighborhood context
Small group interaction focused on sharing personal stories and experiences
Think-tank sessions with storyboarding exercises
This initiative will both challenge and affirm you as you follow the One who “became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood” (John 1:14, MSG
Come develop the practices and partnerships you need for joining what God is doing in the place you live.

May 18-20, 2018 Theme: Adaptive Leadership in the Neighborhood
