Inhabit Conference

Inhabit Conference Inhabit is a gathering for place-based practitioners reimagining church and transforming neighborhoods. The next Inhabit is April 27-28, 2018.
(8)

Inhabit was founded in 2010 through an energetic partnership between The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology and the Parish Collective in the United States. Through a series of events, both organizations began to entertain a simple hunch: What if God is up to something really big and global but it can only be discovered through the small and local? It was through the exploration of that question that Inhabit was born – a gathering for the sake of reimagining church and transforming neighborhoods. Each year hundreds of practitioners, pastors, entrepreneurs, community leaders and lay people from all over the globe come together to connect, collaborate and celebrate the good work being done in thousands of neighborhoods and parishes. These are the people who are empowering others to join in the commitment with the Spirit’s work in one’s own particular neighborhood and context, that then illuminates fresh hope for the church in the 21st century.

It is with a heavy heart that we must share the news that the Inhabit Conference 2020 will be postponed.

Our partners at The Seattle School have made the decision to shut down classes and events through April, which makes our decision very simple.

We are hopeful that we will be able to reschedule toward the end of June, but are not able to give finalized dates at this time.

While postponing a conference does not get anywhere close to the complications and threats of this virus, as you can imagine, this is still a major complication for us.

Please keep all those involved in your fervent prayers, and remember the ancient words of Saint Paul via Eugene Peterson's paraphrase, "You are Christ's body - that's who you are! You must never forget this.“ (1 Corinthians 12:27 - MSG) Don't forget friends, don't ever forget.

As a firm believer in investing in the community you grew up in, Jonathan has a deep desire to impress this virtue on his congregation and community. Canaan provides youth development, holistic health options, college scholarships, art and music training and re-entry programming.

#PastahJ as he is affectionately called, is a sought after speaker, writer and artist. He has contributed to numerous blogs, articles and books and in Fall 2018, Jonathan is set to release his first book titled “Church Forsaken: Practicing Presence in Neglected Neighborhoods.” Jonathan was a recipient of the John M. Perkins Fellowship from Northern Seminary where he received a Master of Divinity in Christian Community Development. Jonathan and his wife, Micheal, have two beautiful girls, Jasmine and Jade, and reside in West Englewood just a few steps away from the church campus.

Will there be any Inhabit 2018 videos posted soon? We are going to have Post Inhabit Parties and show them.
Bought my ticket months ago, but forgot to get a room(!). Any leads appreciated.
Hi friends! So looking forward to being together next week. Wondering if the app from last year will be updated, or has been discontinued? Thanks :)
I won't be able to make it out to Seattle for this even though I would love to! Just wondering if any of the sessions/talks will be available online after the conference is over? Or perhaps a live stream?
Great opportunity
Do you have any pages you can recommend for inspiration on what people are doing in neighbourhood Ministry?
