As I prepare this article, Belfast is gearing up for yet another conference to promote the evangelistic methodology of the group known in the UK as the ‘Willow Creek Association’. An advert for this conference to be held in the Kings Hall Conference Centre on Monday 10 March 2003 reads as follows –
- REACH THE UNCHURCHED
- BUILDING A CONTAGIOUS CHURCH
- LEE STROBEL (Author of ‘The Case for Christ’)
- MARK MITTELBERG (Evangelism Director of the Willow Creek Association)
Many pastors and churches are being urged to adopt the strategies used apparently with great ‘success’ at the Willow Creek Community Church in America whose Senior Pastor is Bill Hybels.
