CIR 2008: STATE OF THE CITY: AUSTIN TRANSFORMATION
There is an unusual growth of  the city-reaching-city-impacting streams in North America and across the globe.
Strong citywide/regional churches, ministries and marketplace networks with a kingdom-size vision of global evangelism are
emerging into the scene. They are compassionate. They are team players. They are sharing too. They are not another prayer
ministry; but a house of prayer for all nations. They keep it simple. Pray. Care. Share. New wineskin for new wine!

There is an emergence of City Churches and city-reaching organizations all across Texas; such inspire our spirits, stir our creative
juices, and motivate us to take action. Big or small, it’s a kingdom-size Church and marketplace ministries. A people on the cutting
edge of what God is doing now.

City Churches facilitate unity in “The Church”, they break out of the Church ghettos into the community, break down racial barriers and
break out of the status quo and release men and women God has called into their calling and ministry. They network and
collaborate. They thank God and support women in leadership. They are enthusiast of ministry of reconciliation, creativity, revival and
spiritual awakening and City transformation.

Mission America Coalition gathers leaders regionally and across North America in a roundtable each year. This is the forth annual
regional CIR in Austin, TX. Christian leaders including Pastors, marketplace ministers and everyone with a city-sized and kingdom-
centered vision from cities across Texas shall meet as we have done in the previous years, in Austin, to pray and discuss together,
how “the whole Church can work together in showing and telling the whole Gospel to the whole City and beyond.”  2007 City Impact
Roundtable Conference (CIR) shall be held on Saturday, August 2, 2008, near Austin International airport. . It’s going to be a treat!
Our team is Pray, Care and share in City-reaching.

Last year’s CIR conference was attended by about 160 leaders from more than 120 networks, churches/ministries and businesses,
including elected officials. This year, CIR will for leaders of Networks, denominations, pastors and church workers, city-reachers,
marketplace ministers, elected officials and indeed all that want to work with the body of Christ for a completely transformed
city/region.

This conference provides a rare opportunity to connect meaningfully with men and women with practical, real-world passion for what
we see God’s Spirit doing in defined geographical contexts in Texas.  We can Pray, Care and Share in City-reaching.  We are
committed and desperate to see an outbreak of God in our cities across Texas:  Full-blown city/regional transformation!  We ask both
city-reaching/transformation practitioners and strategic thinkers to invest twenty-four hours stepping outside the “religious box” of
what has been, and envision how God might want us to increase Kingdom impact in our communities, cities, and regions of Texas.


City Impact Roundtable Conference 2008 Conference Format
The City Impact Roundtable Conference brings together pastors, teachers, evangelist, prophets, apostles, marketplace leaders,
ministries, veteran city practitioners and local city/regional officials to earnestly seek God and process together the challenges of
implementing functional models of the "city church" that have measurable, transformational impact in defined communities, cities
and geographic areas.

CIR is a peer-to-peer learning community, a virtual mosaic of personalities and city-reaching approaches. This diversity is
intentional, and healthy. At this gathering, we have purposed not to plan formal inputs or "BIG" teachings. Leaders from numerous
city-reaching models will be in the mix. We use a design with an open format that will allow us to honestly and freely process issues
together, bring our intercessory burdens to the Lord, build more meaningful and purposeful relationships, and discover what's really
on the city impact pad in this watershed season in Texas and our various cities.

What happened during the last three years' CIR in Austin is building-block  for a wider CIR this year for anyone involved in the city-
reaching/ transformation paradigm.

All conference participants are expected to take an active role in this conference that will be a "shirt-sleeve" working roundtable
focused on discerning and implementing collaborative evangelism in our cities. What's working? What are we finding truly effective
penetrating a culture increasingly ambivalent or resistant to the gospel? What national, state, regional and city resources are
available? How do we do a better job of releasing a kingdom synergy when practitioners, pastors, denominations and evangelistic
organizations work more intentionally together? How do we get beyond competing for the same "market share" of souls, and make
Christ known more effectively to our culture and subcultures?

We invite you to CIR 2006.  CIR is a valuable forum developing Vision and Vital Partnerships to Penetrate, Saturate, and Impact all
Sectors of our Communities with the Love and Presence our lord Jesus Christ!

Serving Him through serving others,


C. Benjamin Anyacho
