WOODLAND PARK PC, 225 N 70TH ST, SEATTLE, WA 98103
Colombia delegation (details TBA)
DINNER TABLE DISCUSSION:
Global Mission Opportunity: The Billion-person Shift facilitated by Rita Johnson.
According to United Nations projections, a billion people will move to urban areas in the next 30 years. This urbanization will be strongest in nations that are less urbanized and often less developed economically and socially resulting in substantial growth in slum populations (which are already about one billion people).
Come discuss this and learn where some of the key locations for future urbanization are projected to be. How might this impact our mission strategies and partnerships in the next few years?
Please RSVP to Rita Johnson, email@example.com by Wednesday, October 9 so that there can be a place for you in the discussion.
Dinner discussion will be in Woodland Park PC’s Mural Room (near the fellowship hall).
Optional: bring a little description (1/2-2 page(s)) of a current global partnership where your congregation has adopted (or is partnering with) a slum or a village or a school. Purpose: to have a little idea where partnerships are now: which nations? Urban or rural? [If your congregation hasn’t adopted a specific place, but has another type of international mission partnership, bring a description of that.]
