Welcome to a behind-the-scenes look at the Emersion team—Doug Pagitt, Carla Barnhill, Tim Conder, Chad Allen, and myself, Brooke Nolen—at work. The team recently met in Minneapolis, Minnesota where Doug Pagitt hosted the meeting at Solomon’s Porch, a unique church community that he leads. On Sunday evening, I experienced firsthand Doug spinning around on a stool, barefoot in a room full of believers and seekers, while encouraging attendees to interact with his message. I felt very much at ease sitting on one of the couches among a welcoming community of folks desiring to live out their faith together in a real way. This church was the perfect place to help stimulate creative and challenging conversations with the Emersion team throughout the next few days. And this meaningful dialogue is why I am excited to have recently joined the Emersion team—and would love to help you join, too.
To see where this emerging conversation is headed, you are welcome to attend:
