Upcoming Events

Upcoming Events:

We’ve got two important, upcoming events to tell you about: An all-new virtual gathering we call the Chapter House on September 25, and an AFFN-Sponsored Worship Workshop in conjunction with Asbury Seminary November 6-8.

Chapter House:

AFFN-WebinarChapter House is a large room or building attached to a cathedral, collegiate church, or religious house where the members of the order meet together. In monastic communities, the monks gather there to share the news and events of the day, read Scripture, or talk theology. We’ve been working on creating a virtual Chapter House, an online experience that will be big enough, yet intimate enough, to accommodate our growing community– and one located so conveniently that you don’t have to leave your home or office.

Watch your AFFN emails for the next gathering and join us for our latest tele/video-conference. 

Instructions: Use your phone and dial: (515) 739-1453. When prompted, enter the access code 109084 followed by the pound sign. (Please note: You may experience cheesy “on hold” music for a short spell. Be patient with us; we’re working on something better). Phone carrier/long distance charges may apply.

AFFN Worship Workshop and The Convergence: November 6, 7, 8, 2017:

logo_mark_450The AFFN will host a one-day worship workshop on Monday, November 6, featuring Dr. Teresa Gardner, Dr. Carl Peters, Dr. Ellen Kohler, Dr. Jennifer Harris-Clayton, and Dr. Chris Alford.

Hosted at Asbury Seminary, the worship workshop will feature special guest speakers leading five great sessions: “What Makes Us Ancient-Future,” “Why is Ancient-Future Renewal Important to My Church?” “What Does Praise Look Like: A Biblical Look at Expressions of Worship in the Psalms,” “Liturgy as Story and Spiritual Formation,” and “Worship and Trauma: The Intersection of Story.”

Registration is $20. Students get into the AFFN worship workshop for free. Find a copy of the workshop schedule and bio sketches of the speakers by clicking right here.

During our time, we will worship corporately in liturgical chapel services and also explore topics such as “The Power of Liturgy,” “Sacramental Preaching,” “Sacramental Church Planting,” “21st Century Catechesis” and more. We believe that exploring the historic practices of the church will bring new life and substance to the leaders of our day and we would be delighted if you joined with us for this incredible opportunity!

The cost is $30.
