A fundamental component of the Movement Day Global Cities (MDGC) experience is the opportunity to hear from and dialogue with one another Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Join us for our Interactive Learning Tracks and participate in the sharing of best practices and the fostering of collaboration between leaders, organizations, and cities. Topics covered within the tracks are focused on current urban issues or population groups, and are led by topic experts and practitioners.
While the topics covered in our Interactive Learning Tracks are diverse, many of the sessions seek to address questions or needs connected with general themes of City Impact & Transformation, Everyday Impact, Youth Mentorship & Discipleship, and Church Growth.
This week we are highlighting several Interactive Learning Tracks that may interest those seeking to explore questions, needs, or challenges connected to the theme of Everyday Impact. For those wanting to lead from a place of spiritual and emotional wholeness, check out our Afternoon Track entitled Emotionally Healthy Leaders: Change People, Change the World. This session, led by Pete Scazzero, Founder of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, and Teaching Pastor of New Life Fellowship Church; Bishop Claude Alexander, Senior Pastor of The Park Church; Rev. Gabriel Salguero, President of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition (NaLEC); and Nicole Massie Martin, Executive Minister at The Park Church.
For those who have a heart for the urban poor and feel called to respond to the pressing demands presented by extreme urban poverty, our Fragile States and the Future of Extreme Poverty track is the one for you. A special emphasis will be placed upon the nation of Haiti as a case study, with John Hasse, National Director for World Vision Haiti and Raineer Chu, Head & Co-Founder of Companion With the Poor Inc. Manila, on hand to lead the session, along with Adam Durso, President of Faith Breathes, LLC and Rev. Mullery Jean-Pierre, Pastor of Beraca Baptist Church.
