A Night with David Fitch

Village Guitar & Amp Co.

David Fitch is the author of Faithful Presence, one of the most important books in recent years on actively living out Christian faith in our neighbourhoods. As with most of his writing, this book is both imminently practical and coherently theological. The New Leaf Network invites you to join us for an evening of free-flowing storytelling with David Fitch, as we look at what it means to both take Christ with us and discover the presence of Christ already at work in our neighbourhoods.

What to expect:

  • David Fitch will share from his book Faithful Presence
  • A chance for questions about David’s work and experiences
  • Networking with others attempting to bring a Faithful Presence to different contexts in Saskatoon

Date: March 7, 2019 7:00 pm-9:30 pm
Cost: $20

David Fitch is the author of Faithful Presence: Seven Disciplines that Shape the Church for Mission, and the B. R. Lindner Chair of Evangelical Theology at Northern Seminary Chicago, IL. He’s married to Rae Ann and they have one child, a son Max. He’s pastored and participated in many church plants including Life on the Vine Christian Community a missional church in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Most recently he and his family have joined Peace of Christ Church, Westmont, a church planted from Life on the Vine. He writes on the issues the local church must face in Mission including cultural engagement, leadership and theology. His theology combines Neo-Anabaptist streams of thought, his commitments to evangelicalism and his love for political theory. He has lectured and presented on these topics at many seminaries, graduate schools, denominational gatherings and conferences.
