Our theme this year is 'Movement', based on our Charis Core value of 'Biblical Mission'.
'For this reason I left you in Crete, to set in order what remains...' Titus 1:5

 I want us to come together and talk ministry shop. I want to help you continue to move your local mission forward. God has given you a unique gifting, landed you as leader of a unique faith family, to engage a unique local community. Let's spend time together at Focus talking about practical tools to help you fulfill the local mission God has given to you. I believe if each of us can come away with 3-4 new or fresh ideas to get more movement to your local mission context it will be time well spent. I look forward to seeing you there! ...Phil Sparling, Executive Director of the Charis Fellowship
