(206) 383-9078

There's ministry, and there's The Ministry. We always knew that. 

Now we're learning it again....

October 12, 2017—a Thursday—a network of peers, mentors and sages gather to tell stories, ask questions, and connect with others who are redeeming, reclaiming, and reframing the M word.

SCOUT’S HONOR: THE HACK THE MINISTRY GATHERING WAS EXTRAORDINARY.

Honestly.

Gathering with this particular (some might say peculiar) group of people, in this particular place, in the context of this particular American moment … was genuinely remarkable.

The mix of peers, mentors and sages in the room generated profound, fun, deep thinking, plenty of lively questions, and refreshingly frank - reliably gracious - responses.

We’ll have more to say as folks respond in the coming days. We’ll do our best to make meaning of the experience, and communicate what we learn, where we have new questions, and what we think it all means for people who have been, and are, and hope to redeem the “M” word. 

Meanwhile, very special thanks to the passionate innovators and practitioners around The Shoe that GrowsDinner Church Collective, Ballard Homestead, and Alexa’s Cafe & Catering They pitched in to make this happen. We hope you'll seek them out — they may be able to serve you — you may be able to serve with them.
