Chip Ingram, CEO and teaching pastor of Living on the Edge, will be one of the plenary speakers at the second annual Movement Day Greater Dallas (MDGD), on January 22, 2015. Area leaders will gather for diverse cultural and ethnic constituency of Christian leaders from business, education, healthcare, nonprofits, government and the church. There are more than 2500 expected participants, nearly doubling the attendance from last year.
Chip Ingram is no novice when it comes to teaching, inspiring and encouraging others. He founded Living on the Edge twenty five years ago with a passion to help Christians live like Christians. Through this ministry, as well as being a pastor and author, Chip has reached believers around the world, inspiring them to not merely be spiritual spectators, but to become strong disciples of Jesus by living out God’s word on a daily basis. His pragmatic approach makes it simple to apply God’s truth to everyday situations and he will no doubt supply the Movement Day attendees with practical ways to do just that.
Chip, along with Gregg Dedrich, president of Living on the Edge, will be leading a thirty-minute workshop called Holy Ambition. Dedrich has ventured through a personal journey of finding his purpose and holy ambition while serving in high-level corporate role, which enables them to provide the participants a firsthand testament on how to confront and navigate such a journey.
“In the afternoon, Chip will provide encouragement as he presents this workshop. We are excited to have him bring application to what we learn in the morning plenary session. What a privilege to have this additional application and encouragement from him.” states Jon Edmonds, Executive director of MDGD.
Movement Day Greater Dallas, the first replication of Movement Day in New York, occurred on January 23, 2014 where 1400 leaders attended to learn best practices in urban ministry and cast a fresh vision for their own cities. Numerous groups formed during the inaugural event have continued to meet regularly and these continued efforts are evident that the goal to encourage, equip and mobilize Christian leaders throughout the city has been successful. In addition to the plenary speakers such as Chip Ingram, there will be eight returning afternoon tracks and two new tracks for participants to engage. These cover issues such as education, hunger, human trafficking, leadership, marketplace, financial stability, immigrant care, orphan care, prison reentry, exploring God and public safety chaplain support.
Dr. Mac Pier, founder of Movement Day and The New York City Leadership Center, explains, “We want to encourage city leaders and inspire them as gospel city movement practitioners, to understand there are opportunities for collaboration that will help accelerate a strategic Gospel impact in their city. Ingram’s experience from years of ministry will provide wisdom and encouragement to aide in this initiative”.
