1 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Family Each member of a healthy family has and understands their unique role. But more than that, they also feel the weight of how important their role is in defining the whole, regularly giving of themselves toward their shared values. In this sense, The Foursquare Church is one family. One tribe. And to be a family that takes the whole gospel to the whole world, everyone must run in their role. At Foursquare Connection 2011, the Foursquare tribe is gathering to do just that. It s a time for each person to offer their unique experiences and knowledge to the family. It s a time for everyone to be refreshed in ministry together. It s a time to Accelerate Family. 1a.indd 1 1/14/11 11:59 AM

2 You have a unique voice in equipping the family to live out this call to take the whole gospel to the whole world. Your experiences, your life lessons, your wisdom are invaluable resources that we re asking you to bring to Columbus. Here are a few of the things you can expect: An affordable week With early registration, hotel rates under $100, and some fun and inexpensive things to do around Columbus, you can enjoy the local restaurants, eclectic shops and rest with a friend, a spouse or a family member for a great price.

3 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Love For Foursquare to be a church that takes the whole gospel to the whole world, we have to be a church marked by love. We have to be people that are so rooted and established in love, that when we look at the world, we cannot help but give, serve, go, and reach. Foursquare Connection 2011 will be a time for our ministers to continue stepping into this together. It will be a time for resting, recharging and connecting. It will be a time to be developed and empowered. Through these things and more, it will be a time to Accelerate Love. 1b.indd 1 1/14/11 11:59 AM

4 Here are just a few of the ways Foursquare Connection will help you live out and lead others toward taking the whole gospel to the whole world: Sessions and Worship Gatherings Lean in to hear from seasoned and rising leaders, including prophetic voices that will help us understand what God is saying to his church. Dedicated times of worship and ministry will take place each evening. Collaborative Learning Track on Wednesday Collaborative learning tracks for leaders to gather within peer-based environments to explore missional practices that will set us on our global course of developing healthy reproducing leaders who lead healthy reproducing churches contextually, creatively, and courageously. Affordability and Rest Opportunities of Columbus With early registration, spouse discount, hotel rates under $100, and inexpensive things to do around Columbus, you can enjoy a break from everyday ministry with your spouse, a friend or a colleague at a great price.

5 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Care The church is God s plan for the world. It s also susceptible to burnout and significant attack by the enemy. Regardless of denominational affiliation, these statistics are grim reminders that ministry can be messy. 50 percent of Christians in ministry will have an affair. 80 percent of Christians in ministry will be in a completely different vocation in 5 years. 85 percent of Christians in ministry have spouses who wish they had a different occupation. In order for the Foursquare Church to take the whole gospel to the whole world, we must be led by healthy men and women, men and women with clarity and courage to bring people to Jesus and Jesus to people. Foursquare Connection 2011 will be a time to invest in our pastors and leaders by giving them a time to refresh, recharge and be in fellowship with other leaders. It will be a place to pour into them through worship and personal ministry time, collaborative learning and in a city perfect for unwinding. It will be a time to Accelerate Care. 1c.indd 1 1/14/11 11:57 AM

6 Foursquare Church Council: Would you consider investing in your pastor and their spouse (if applicable) by sending them to Foursquare Connection?

Dedicated times of worship and ministry will take place each evening.

7 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Rest We live in a fast paced world. We handle tasks at astronomical rates. We are a culture that s not short on do-ers, producers, and go-getters. And while we both celebrate and steward the visions, gifts, and skills God freely gives, we also want to be people that know how to rest. God, Himself, modeled this posture for us by creating the Sabbath, and we want to follow Him well in this area. Foursquare Connection 2011 in Columbus will be a time marked by this kind of slowing down. Sure, the week will be full, but it s designed to recharge and recalibrate. A week to get away from the everyday trenches of ministry and discover and discern how God is leading His church today. It will be a time to Accelerate Rest. 2.indd 1 1/14/11 11:57 AM

8 Why Columbus? Hotel Rates: Rooms available at under $100 a night. Proximity to the airport: The Greater Columbus Convention Center, hotels, entertainment and recreation activities are all less than 10 miles from the Columbus airport, making it accessible and affordable.

Here are some of the ways you and your spouse can take advantage of all this area has to offer: Dining: Enjoy dinner and a movie at the Arena Grand Movie Theatre, voted Columbus best movie theatre three years running. Social Outings: Connect with friends old and new by ice-skating on the same rink where NHL hockey team the Columbus Blue Jackets, play. Sporting Events: The Columbus Clipper, a minor league baseball team, may not be in town that weekend, but you can catch a game at one of the great restaurants downtown. And don t forget your golf clubs as there are a number of great golf courses in the area.

11 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Discipleship One thing the church should never become weary of is growing as disciples of Jesus. It should never become stagnant or take on a posture that it has somehow arrived. But it should be full of people marked by a continued pursuit of holiness. That s a large part of how The Foursquare Church will take the whole gospel to the whole world. Foursquare Connection 2011 is a time to invest in personal and leadership development so that growth flows into all the areas of the life. It s a time to Accelerate Discipleship. 4.indd 1 1/14/11 11:56 AM

13 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Learning We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work (John 9:4). What happens when you roll a snowball down a hill? It accelerates and picks up speed and mass. The acceleration of the whole gospel to the whole world is just like that; it carries the properties of a snowball. And that s the hope for Foursquare Connection It is a time to release the snowball from the top of the world s hill so that the movement gains momentum. Momentum that translates to our communities and to the word. It s a time to Accelerate Learning. 5.indd 1 1/14/11 11:54 AM

14 Learning opportunities at Foursquare Connection: Collaborative Learning Tracks on Wednesday A four-hour collaborative learning track for leaders to gather within peer-based environments to explore missional practices that will set us on our global course of developing healthy reproducing leaders who lead healthy reproducing churches contextually, creatively, and courageously. Co:laborative We must face our future together. The landscape of the world has changed and is changing. For us to move into our tomorrows, we must foster a co:laboring spirit. And so we commit that each learning environment will support this posture through well-storied practitioners providing guidance, while making room for meaningful dialogue and networking. Peer-based For the co:laborative spirit to root we ve designed each learning environment to be peer based. Peer-based can be defined as you participating with others who lead similar numeric size churches. This allows for your current story to be shared, challenges to be understood, and hope for your future to be encouraged. Missional Practices Holding to a strong belief that mission and missional presence are intrinsic dimensions of the church s life and calling, we seek to outline simple and contextual practices that align with the future vision and direction of The Foursquare Church.

15 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Foursquare But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).

As we look into our future, we see the very real possibility of taking the whole gospel to the whole world. All 195 nations.

17 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate Community We were made for community. Every single one of us. It s something that God spoke when He determined it was not good for man to be alone. It s often the determining factor used to predict an organization s future success. And it s something that will have to be true of The Foursquare Church as we head into our future. Foursquare Connection 2011 is a time where togetherness can and will happen in significant ways. It s a time to Accelerate Community. 7.indd 1 1/14/11 11:53 AM

18 How community will happen at Foursquare Connection 2011: Hotels: At the Hyatt Regency Columbus and the other participating Foursquare Connection hotels, togetherness will happen. Meet with friends for breakfast, coffee, or during breaks to catch up and spend time together. All hotels are within walking distance of each other. Sleep at your hotel. Hang out in the common areas in and around the convention center. Exhibit Hall: On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the exhibit hall is a great place to hang out with friends old and new to end each day together by debriefing things learned, sharing encouragement, or simply catching up together. Meals and Free Time: Each day will also hold multiple opportunities to share a meal, explore Columbus and build deeper relationships.

19 Foursquare Connection 2011 May 30 June 2 Columbus, Ohio Accelerate History The vision of The Foursquare Church is to present Jesus Christ, God s Son, to every person in every culture and nation as The Savior, The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, The Healer and The Soon-coming King. Since the founding of The Foursquare Church in 1923, that vision continues through evangelizing the lost and establishing local congregations in the United States and abroad, through the nurturing and training of believers into leadership on all levels of church life, and in cooperation with other members of the body of Christ at large in the fellowship of the gospel and the fulfillment of the biblical mandate to be light and salt on the earth. We ve been pioneering, establishing, empowering and sending people from the very beginning, and we re going to re-discover this Acts-centric pattern in Columbus. At Foursquare Connection 2011, we will step into our future together. It is a time to expand on where God has brought us from and move into where He s now leading. It s a time to Accelerate History. 8.indd 1 1/14/11 11:52 AM

20 In 2011, we celebrate 65,000 churches in approximately 140 nations. And while we celebrate, we move with eager anticipation to take the whole gospel to the whole world. There are still communities and nations that need the life-changing news of Jesus Christ. Foursquare Connection 2011 is about equipping the church so that every nation would know that Jesus is Lord.
