The Art of Neighboring, A Mini Conference with Dave Runyon Friday, March 15 10:30 a.m. – 12 noon, Saint James Church, James Island, 1872 Camp Road Charleston SC, Open to the Public. Register here.
What if Jesus meant that we should love our actual neighbors?
When Jesus was asked to sum up everything into one command, he said to love God with everything we have and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Most of us have turned this simple idea of loving our neighbors into a nice saying, putting it on bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets and then going on with our lives without actually putting it into practice.
What would happen if every follower of Jesus took the Great Commandment literally?
Join us Friday, March 15 at St. James, James Island, to hear Pastor Dave Runyon share his own testimony of how the idea of neighboring impacted his own walk with the Lord, and re-doubled his efforts to share what the Lord put on his heart with church and community leaders all across the country.
Let’s collectively have our hearts refreshed in the gospel and in Jesus’ commandment, trusting him to start a movement that will change our own lives, our neighborhoods and our diocese.
Who is Dave Runyon?
Dave helps faith, business, and government leaders unite around common causes in the Denver metro area. He serves as the Executive Director of CityUnite and as a consultant for businesses who have a desire to make a positive impact in their communities. Dave helped to start a neighboring movement in 2010 that has now spread to over 3,000 churches around the country. This experience prompted him to co-author The Art of Neighboring, which was published by Baker Books. He speaks locally and nationally encouraging leaders to collaborate for the good of their cities. Before founding CityUnite, Dave served as a pastor for 10 years at Foothills Community Church and The Next Level Church. He graduated from Colorado State University where he studied history, economics, and education. Dave and his wife, Lauren, have four kids.
