HeartEdge at Rooted in Jesus 2020

Jonathan Evens was in Atlanta, Georgia, this week as the HeartEdge representative at the Rooted in Jesus 2020 conference organised by the Episcopal Church.

HeartEdge was there at the invitation of TryTank Experimental Lab, one of its US partners, who ran a series of workshops on innovative mission at the conference. Together with another US partner, Rev Paige Fisher of Trinity Church Boston, Jonathan led a workshop on 'Resourcing Innovative Mission' that introduced HeartEdge and key concepts such as 'being with' and 'renewal from the edge.'

Through the conference Jonathan was able to renew existing contacts in the USA and make new contacts not just in the US, but also in Canada.

Rooted in Jesus 2020 was intended to assist the Episcopal Church to take a bold new step into the next decade by talking about discipleship, leadership, evangelism, formation, preaching, and much more, in order to go out and be the Body of Christ. It was an interesting and opportune moment in which to be sharing ideas on mission with new contacts and existing partners in the US.
