At the 2018 Intersection Conference (May 17-19 at Northern Seminary in Chicago) mission-minded Anglican leaders will find encouragement and tools to effectively engage 21st century culture for Christ.
The conference theme is Engaging Culture: An Inter-Disciplinary Conversation. Seven speakers will explore key areas of cultural engagement in today’s landscape. After each speaker, a panel of diverse thinkers will interact with the concepts, interweaving approaches to Anglican practice and perspective. Attendees will then discuss practical implications in cohort groups—leaving challenged and energized for mission in a postmodern world.

Last year’s conference was an exciting display of unity in the Anglican Church in North America—23 dioceses were represented! The 2018 conference will once again gather missional minds from around the province to crack the code for 21st century mission.
Hosting the conference is The Telos Collective, a five-year initiative commissioned by Archbishop Foley Beach to catalyze faithful and fruitful Gospel engagement with culture. Archbishop Beach asked Bishop Todd Hunter to lead The Telos Collective, working alongside him and other bishops and leaders to help the Anglican Church gain confidence to engage a postmodern world.
“We’re looking for men and women who think like missionaries, who are committed to using every strategy at their disposal to reach 21st century North Americans for Christ,” Archbishop Beach says.
Bishop Hunter is looking forward to continuing his work of serving Provincial Sponsor Archbishop Beach and the Anglican Church in North America.
“We respect the diversity of the dioceses within, and focus our energy in one specific direction: mission,” he says. “We will encourage attendees to think about and execute these ideas within their bishops’ overall ecclesiology and under their leadership.”
