Foursquare Connection 2011 promises to be a celebration of what God is doing throughout this new season of The Foursquare Church worldwide. Ministry leaders will enjoy times of personal refreshing and collaborative learning that will strengthen each one for healthy and fruitful leadership.

Foursquare Connection 2011, convening in Columbus, Ohio, May 30–June 2, will offer a unique venue, opportunities for couples to enjoy time together, and occasions for everyone to grow in Christ through all-new collaborative learning tracks that will help build personal ministry skills.

This year’s Foursquare convention will focus on the yearlong return to our spiritual roots, raising the banner of God’s mission for The Foursquare Church and this year’s Connection theme: “Accelerate—The Whole Gospel to the Whole World.”

There will also be a time to look closely at Foursquare’s Four-Stage Development Model, and to share insight and a clear direction for the future of our movement.

Foursquare leaders will enjoy breaks for personal refreshing during Connection 2011, and Columbus and the surrounding area offer plenty to do. Leaders might enjoy a scenic walk through the Olentangy greenway corridor or a visit to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Also close to the convention venue is a venerable German Village that boasts neighborhoods with timeless architecture as well as inviting restaurants, delicatessens, bakeries and shops.

Special collaborative learning tracks are planned for Wednesday, when leaders will gather in peer-based environments to explore missional practices. Learning track coordinators say “peer-based learning” will allow for leaders to share their current stories with people of similar experience.

The goal of Connection 2011 learning tracks is to explore missional practices and move us closer to our global course of developing healthy, reproducing leaders who lead healthy, reproducing churches contextually, creatively and courageously.

Collaborative learning track descriptions are available online, and Connection delegates can sign up for learning tracks when they register for Connection. Discounted registration is available for credentialed ministers, spouses, retired ministers and those who register early.
