<p> <a href="#spanish">En Español</a></p><p>​Be SENT. </p><p>Join a gathering of more than 100 Mennonite mission-minded, Jesus-following leaders for a two-day church-planting summit in Fort Myers. There will be church planters, groups testing the call, missional entrepreneurs, outreach experimenters, pastors, missiologists, and conference leaders.</p><p>Be a part of something greater. Build relationships with other Anabaptist church planters. This gathering will strengthen existing relationships and explore new ways of collaboration across the church.</p><p>Be inspired. Share your church-planting experiences—the good, the bad, the ugly. Together, we can learn to form Jesus-shaped communities in a variety of contexts. We will reflect on Anabaptist/Mennonite church-planting experiences—both successes and failures—and again hear Jesus’ words to us, sending us into many different contexts to form new faith communities.</p><p>Hosted by <em>Arca de Salvacion</em>.<br></p><p>Sponsored by Mennonite Mission Network.</p><p> <br> </p><h2>Schedule</h2><h3>Thursday, April 6</h3><p>4:30-5:30  <strong>Registration/arrival</strong><br>5:30-6:30  <strong>DINNER (<em>Arca de Salvación</em> dining hall)</strong><br>6:30-8  <strong>Opening</strong><br></p><blockquote style="margin:0px 0px 0px 40px;padding:0px;border:currentcolor;"><p> <strong>Presentations<br></strong></p><p><strong>Worship and biblical meditation:</strong> Ervin Stutzman, “Set apart for the gospel” (Romans 1:1)</p></blockquote><p> </p><h3>Friday, April 7</h3><p>8-9  <strong>BREAKFAST</strong><br>9-9:30  <strong>Worship and biblical meditation:</strong> Stanley W.
