1) Neighboring Like Jesus—Dave Runyon
Dave Runyon uses this break out to help you explore the concepts of his book more deeply. Plenty of time will be dedicated to questions and answers as Dave lays out his motivation for writing the book and how The Art of Neighboring has influenced his spiritual journey. You'll also learn how to be a good neighbor in a non-urban setting.

2) Incubating Entrepreneurism—Dr. Steve Harling
Explore how to create a missional church culture that equips and empowers members to fully express their individual ministry callings (while still keeping everyone headed in the same direction). You will hear a pastor’s reflections on what the missional movement got right and wrong, and how to keep it moving into maturity.

3) Neighboring in Small Town Settings—Marlan Mincks
In a small town setting, bringing together two diverse groups of people is often difficult but your success in ministry here depends on it. The first group has been there forever. They own the property their Great, Great Grandparents owned. They are as internet savvy as people in a large city but are change resistant. Transitional people who have moved to the area make up the second group. They often have had a larger world experience, they view life differently than the natives, and they like change. Let's take a look at walking with a foot in each trail while moving toward the mission to which God has called you.

4) Understanding Islam (and ISIS) Today—David Clark
Media of every kind are telling us about the rise of Islam in all its various expressions. What is Islam's story—how did it begin, what does it teach, and how is it practiced today? What about ISIS—what is its origin and is it just another branch of Al Qaeda? And what should we do—how should Christians think about and respond to the growing presence of Islam today?

5)  Finding Joy and Hope in the Weariness and Wounds in Ministry—Sherry Mortenson
If you are finding yourself “drained and discouraged" in serving, there is hope. If you are losing your passion and purpose in ministry, there is hope. The Lord can provide authentic j​oy, healing, perseverance, and power in the journey of faith and ministry (especially for those who are weary and tired!) All women are invited to join us for this time of encouragement, support, and practical steps to health and growth in the midst of the different seasons of life and ministry.

6) Helping Students Be Good Neighbors—Jared Coe 
In a barrage of Insta-pics, Likes and Friending, how do students build authentic, caring relationships with their neighbors, classmates, and others in their areas of influence? In the midst of 21st century busyness and wireless connection, the antithesis of healthy face to face relationships, students have multiple avenues to learn and live out good neighboring. Jared is eager to share how students become great neighbors to others by being connected to Jesus and then to others.
