Prodigal Party - A Unique Celebration

A little over two years ago we hosted "40 Days of Prayer" with congregations throughout King County. We prayed for different facets of our cities asking, "What is God's Heart for our city?" After the forty days we surveyed participants asking if they felt the Spirit encouraging them to engage in several topics that have an effect on our cities. Incarceration was one the results that rose to the top. But how should we engage the prison system and the incarcerated? One way our staff found was to simply throw a party. Dawn Zern writes very candidly about her experience, we hope you enjoy the post and if you feel led to join the party, please comment below or contact her directly: “Would yo

Recap on Q Commons Seattle

What an amazing night, of digging deep into difficult discussions, we experienced this past Thursday at 415 Westlake in downtown Seattle. The rain and wind didn't dampen the spirits of those who attended, though the traffic did get us behind by five minutes or so. We had the opportunity to stream in national speakers Ravi Zacharias, Kirsten Powers/ Ross Douthat and Lecrae, but we also heard from local speakers as well. Matt Kaemingk from Christ & Cascadia challenged the generalized notion that Seattle is a post-Christian, secular city, but rather a very spiritual city that needs to hear and experience the Gospel from the Church. Clarence Presley presented his unique way of engaging outsi

Jeff Vancil on Discipleship

We've gotten a lot of great feedback from our attendees of The Advance, many of whom asked to provide the keynote speaker's presentations.

The Advance Recap

On September 28th-29th, we hosted our second annual The Advance at the historic Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Seattle. We had over 200 people attend from 26 different cities to advance the Kingdom of God in their neighborhoods and cities. We heard from keynote speakers Eugene Cho, Jeff Vancil, Romanita Hairston-Overstreet and Ray Bakke- who each shared about Kingdom work, discipleship, engaging the city and the Church's role respectively. We also heard from a few cities in how they are engaging these areas of work. We also had a powerful time with worship and lament on racial and relational brokenness that's engaging our city, nation and world. Before we left each city shared at least one co

Queue the Q Commons

Last week we held The Advance at Mt. Zion Baptist Church- which was an awesome time of strategy to advance the Gospel in our cities, and we are excited to share a little bit from that event with you. However, we want you to know about another event called Q Commons we will be hosting next Thursday, October 13th, 7pm at 415 Westlake. Q is kind of like TED Talks for a Christian audience, attempting to push the boundaries by asking questions that many wrestle with locally, nationally and globally. Q aligns with our LUTC model in our attempt to engage our cities, culture and society- representing Christ and his love for people. There will be national speakers including hip-hop artist Lecrae, a
