The Prophetic Church: 4 Ways a Church Renewed by Jesus can Surprise the World

The growing Jesus-centered movement is a movement seeking to renew the church by putting Jesus at the center of our lives, our ministries, or our businesses.

We believe Jesus can surprise the world by making possible what seems unimaginable.

Join us at Unite 2024 as we explore these important pain points and the ways a church renewed by Jesus can surprise the world.

# Live Podcasts

These are relational, online learning and equipping hangouts – a safe space for like-minded leaders to wrestle with what Jesus-centred living and leadership means while learning from and engaging interactively with thought and practice leaders from this growing Jesus-centred movement.

In each live podcast, attendees can interact with our featured guest(s) and each other through a live discussion and Q&A time and join smaller break-out rooms to meet others and process the topic together. The content will be challenging and provide some practical equipping ideas that can make a difference in our everyday Jesus-centred life and leadership. 

Featured conversations are listed below. Check back often for new additions! All of our online podcasts are posted to our podcast channel.

Unite Series 01: How Can a Church Centered on Jesus Surrender Power in a World Obsessed With Control? With David Fitch

Welcome to Episode 1 in our Unite Series. We are exploring themes we will dive deeper into at our global Unite Gathering on April 24 – 26, 2024 in St. Paul, MN. In this episode, Paul Walker and Christie Penner Worden sit down with Northern Seminary Professor David Fitch to talk about his new book (January 30, 2024) called Reckoning with Power: Why the Church Fails When it’s On the Wrong Side of Power. Dave, Paul, and Christie have a practical and honest conversation about what happens when the church unknowingly bases its power assumption on a secular operating system. This conversation surfaces important mistakes the church is making in our time and what we can do to align ourselves with Jesus in how we lead and operate communities of Jesus in our cultural moment.

# Regional Gatherings

Regional gatherings are an opportunity to learn more about Jesus Collective, cast vision together, meet new like-minded peers, and network relationally with people in your neck of the woods. They are informal, typically one-day events that also feature a focused development session with a thought leader centred on themes and topics of interest to this movement.

We’ve held events in cities in Canada, the US, and the UK. Check back regularly to see an updated listing, and give us a shout if you’d like to request a gathering in your area.
