20Schemes Church Planting Conference

January 31, 2014

7:00pm – 8:30pm

Location: 47 Fenner Street, Providence, RI 02903

Category: Conference

Mez McConnell and Matthew Spandler-Davison will be joining The Philip Center on February 1, 2014, for a conference on urban church planting. Mez and Matthew direct 20Schemes, a ministry devoted to the gospel transformation of Scotland’s poorest schemes through church planting. They have initiated a church planting and revitalization effort by recruiting, training, supporting and sending church planters, female outreach workers, ministry apprentices and short term interns to work as part of church planting teams within Scotland’s housing schemes. Mez and Matthew believe that building healthy, gospel preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities will bring true, sustainable and long-term renewal to Scotland’s schemes.

We want to see the same process happen in neighborhoods where Summer OFF has take root. The Philip Center believes in the same vision, and are eager to learn, and pass on to others, what 20Schemes is doing.

If you can join us on February 1, we’d love to have you.
