Session 1: Together – 12:30 – 2:00pm CST
Speakers: Dave Ferguson, Watson Jones and Drew Hyun
What’s Missing from the Mission? We understand the great commission (Mathew 28); and we believe in the great commandment (Mark 12); but we have forgotten Jesus’ challenge of the great collaboration in John 17. For us to see a movement that will accomplish the mission of Jesus, we must do what Jesus asked us to do: we are to GO … and LOVE … but TOGETHER!
Session 2: Better Together – 2:30 – 4:00pm CST
Speakers: Dave & Ann Wilson and Homero Garcia
Together as a Family: The Great Collaboration starts with intimacy with God and then is lived out in an intimate marriage and healthy family. Doing life “Together” sees the family as the first priority of ministry and not a distraction from difference making or ancillary to life-changing ministry.
Together as a Team: The mission of Jesus and becoming Level 5 multiplying churches is not something that can be accomplished by a single individual or one charismatic leader. We must come together as staff teams made up of unique gifts and callings to equip and mobilize all of God’s people for mission.
Session 3: Going into All the World Together – 4:30 – 6:00pm CST
Speakers: Charlie Dates and Jon Ferguson
Together as a Church: Living in togetherness is always a part of following Jesus. It wasn’t optional for Jesus. It wasn’t optional for the first apostles. It wasn’t optional for the first Christians, and it’s not optional for us! The church was designed to be God’s eternal community where we experience reconciliation with Him and with others. Too many church leaders are leading churches but are not really a part of those churches. For us to fulfill the Great Collaboration we must be church leaders who live in togetherness and lead in togetherness with our churches.
Together as a Network: When church leaders come together to form networks, they discover the missing piece of movement. This requires leaders and churches working to advance God’s Kingdom and not creating their own kingdom. When leaders work and live together in unity, it is a missional strategy that will reach the least and the lost. (John 17:21b-23)

Session 4: Together – Not Like You – 9:00 – 10:30am CST
Speakers: Scot McKnight and Ed Stetzer
What Unites Us?: We are the body of Christ — diverse in gifting, diverse in our contexts and diverse in service — but we are united by our commitment to the Lordship of Christ and His mission. When we collaborate and work together, we become a fuller expression of the body of Christ better able to accomplish the Jesus mission.
How Big Is Your Circle?: The vision of the church as the body of Christ does not pertain only to one local church. The body of Christ is made up of many churches, and each part of Christ’s body has something unique to offer the rest. When we open ourselves up to learn from one another and work together in unity, we are truly better together.
Session 5: Let’s Get It Together – 11:00am – 12:30pm CST
Speakers: Hosanna Wong and James Meeks
“Together” We Are the Answer to Jesus’ Prayer: Jesus’ last prayer is recorded in John 17:20-21, and it was for us to be one “Together.” God wants us together forever. We can be the answer to Jesus’ final prayer and help people escape from Hell in this life and the next and experience eternal life. (John 17:20-23).
Let’s Get It Together: Commit to the whole Jesus mission to GO–LOVE–TOGETHER. As we each commit to do our part to plant and multiply churches together, we will see level 5 multiplying churches result, movement occur, and the mission of Jesus accomplished. (Matthew 28, Matthew 22 & John 17)
