7-9 pm each night

re:CONNECT is a collective of city minded seekers of Jesus joined for a one time event invented to accomplish two simple things. After we're done we'll pack up our tents and you'll never hear from us again ('kinda like eHarmony for faith and action). We're sure that many folks have already met, and that there are already great organizations and networks underway- we just wanted to do our part to stir it up a bit more. Oh, and we have the help of some great friends of city justice, Shane Claiborne (author of Irresistible Revolution and Jesus for President) and Chris Haw. Claiborne and Haw's tour has been met with huge attendance as high as 1000 people in some locations and featured on CNN. Re-connect's two aims are:

1. to connect Christians to hands-on justice opportunities in or near their Atlanta neighborhood
2. to set up generative friendships between Christians who live and worship inside Atlanta.

Friday night from 7-9 there will be a conversation covering Atlanta's issues of Education, Environmentalism, Education, Housing, and Human Sex Trafficking held in the form of a panel discussion, a drama presentation and group discussion.

Saturday evening from 7-9 will be the Jesus For President Tour wrapped up by a music coffee house session to get to know your neighbors and fellow seekers of the Jesus way.

check out this video from CNN on the tour.

Our cohort is co-sponsoring "Re:Connect" with many partners including Innocence Atlanta, Community Fellowship Church, The Living Room, Sub-Urban.org , Evangelical Environmental Network, Church as Art, Kid Cultivators, Roov, and the Jesus For President tour.

Space is going to be an issue for both nights. If you know where to get a hold of video equipment for close circuit TV/projection contact melvin.

Contact Jeff if you want to join his students in volunteering with parking, hospitality, or any other expertise you may want to bring.

About Us

You're a part of a bigger conversation, a bigger story of God's creation unfolding and realizing it's Creator's dreams in the clue of Jesus. Gather monthly to re-imagine how we can best participate locally in this conversation, story, dreams. This is an Emergent Cohort meeting to flesh out four commitments: to God in the way of Jesus, to the Church in all its Forms, to God's World, and to One Another. This is a theological conversation for any practitioners in the way of Jesus.
