Author and missional practitioner Lance Ford will share insights and best practices of what it means to live out God’s Kingdom in your neighborhood in this one day event. Every participant will receive the book Next Door As It Is In Heaven and a six-week small group study guide.

There was a time when neighbors knew each other’s names, when small children and the old and infirmed alike had more than their families looking out for them. There was a time when our neighborhoods were our closest communities.

No more. Neighborhoods have become the place where nobody knows your name. Into this neighborhood crisis the words of Jesus still ring true: Second only to the command to love God is the command to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

In Next Door as It Is in Heaven, Lance Ford and Brad Brisco offer principles and best practices to make our neighborhoods into places where compassion and care are once again part of the culture, where good news is once again more than words, and where the love of God can be once again rooted and established.
