Shane Claiborne is a founder and board member of The Simple Way, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world. Shane writes and travels extensively, speaking about peacemaking, social justice, and Jesus. Shane’s classic book "The Irresistible Revolution," has invited people all over New Zealand to live out their faith in communities that show Christ's compassion and justice.
Shane's adventures have taken him from the streets of Kolkata, where he worked with Mother Teresa, to the wealthy suburbs of Chicago, where he served at the influential mega-church Willow Creek. As a peacemaker, his journeys have taken him to some of the most troubled regions of the world – from Rwanda to the West Bank – and he’s been on peace delegations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In association with World Vision, we are excited to have this one-off public event with Shane. Profits from the event will go to World Vision. Tickets are limited so get in quick (there will only be door sales if there are tickets left over).
This is an opportunity to be inspired and encouraged, and to network with other missionally-minded people. These events are the start of a conversation on intentional living.
