City Advance is facilitated by Rev. Dr. Glenn Barth of GoodCities, and Rev. Tom White of Frontline Ministries. Together they bring the cumulative wisdom of more than 50 years serving as practitioners and coaches for City Movements in North America and around the world. These men have developed complementary skill-sets that help City Movements make accelerated progress toward their stated transformational objectives.

Tom White, author of The Believers Guide to Spiritual Warfare (1991), also authored Citywide Prayer Movements in 2001. He will release his fourth book in the Fall of 2013.

In The Good City: Transformed Lives Transforming CommunitiesGlenn Barth unpacks deep, practical insights that city leaders are using to ground their movements biblically and spiritually.

These two veteran leaders, each with his unique journey and grid, represent a diversity of approaches aimed at developing strong cross-sector partnerships that lead to collective citywide kingdom impact.

Glenn and Tom bring with them a team of highly qualified facilitators to help participants interact with case studies, engage in peer- learning and interactive dialogue. The City Advance gathering is a cutting-edge learning community designed to enhance your on-going contribution to the Gospel Movement in your city. 

Participants will:

  • Experience an innovative learning community of catalytic leaders, and engage in topics relevant to movements of similar size and complexity
  • Hear stories from mature movements seeing measurable signs of transformation, and have interactive access to the leaders
  • Glean fresh insights on how to more effectively implement cross sector collaboration– people of faith partnering with people of good will
  • Engage in honest dialogue on how to overcome obstacles to multi-generational, multi-ethnic, and cross-sector collaboration
  • Benefit from the “Coaches Corner,” open access to members of the CA Team actively engaged in coaching/consulting City Movements in North America
  • Be given time and a template to design a blueprint for a 5-year plan to bring increased kingdom impact to your city and region
  • Have opportunity to receive fresh impartation of the grace of the Holy Spirit to increase kingdom traction and breakthrough
