The Gathering in Globe - For the CMA Movement

Speakers for the Gathering in Globe

We are coming together to listen and learn together. If you have experiences in the organic church movement, come relate, share & learn! This Gathering is more about conversations together than an agenda of some people on stage. 

We will have the privilege of having some folks who are practitioners share us about their learning so we can learn together.

Following a medical accident in 1997 and during his recovery, Steve became the Launching Pastor.
