Los Altos, Calif., Church Hosts Organic Church Training

From Mike Jentes comes this announcement:

Times are changing. People are crying out for an authentic encounter with the true God and a community of friends. There are many who are longing to experience church in a fresh and simple way. To put a word to it, they long for something more—organic.

The organic church is an old concept. It is so old, it is now new. It’s ancient yet future. Church should happen wherever life happens. Organic church planting is church planting “from the dirt.” It begins where the lost are, bringing church to people rather than bringing people to church. Organic churches are simply about relationships: with God, the family of God, and those who do not yet know God.

The Los Altos Grace Brethren Church (LAGBC) in Long Beach, Calif. is hosting a three-day intensive training on Organic Church this fall. These trainings are done all over the world by Church Multiplication Associates (the SoCal/Arizona District Mission Board). They are called Organic Greenhouse Trainings and there are two components to the training--Story 1 and Story 2 which build on each other. Both will be offered simultaneously during the upcoming event at LAGBC.
