The PC Salon is an introductory event within a particular bioregion which familiarizes neighborhood leaders and practitioners with one another, and with the process of deeper parish integration and collaboration.
If you are a ministry leader wishing to encourage rooted collaboration and care within your own neighborhood, as well as linking up with other place-based expressions across your city and bioregion, the PC Salon will be a meaningful platform to begin.
PC Salons have been held in homes, hubs, pubs, third places, gathering spaces, and community centers, but most frequently they are hosted at colleges, universities, and seminaries. They often result after a period of parish community organizing where various churches, missional groups, and faith-based orgs are ready to learn more about the turn toward the local, and discuss the possibility of collaborating in a particular place around parish themes.

Creating Sustainable Local Communities of Faith
Here in San Francisco we navigate the challenges and opportunities of making disciples to Jesus in highly creative and mobile environment. We are constantly asking questions of how to live in this transient and local city. We also realize that San Francisco is a context in which churches often (though unintentionally) “compete” for members or participants. How can we support sustainable communities of faith that are committed to caring for our neighborhoods? How can we tell stories of neighborhood transformation together? As faith leaders, how can we work together to plant the seeds of the kingdom in the gardens we share? What might it mean for us, practically, to see ourselves as part of the ecology of what God is doing in the San Francisco?
Paul Sparks and Tim Soerens, of The Parish Collective, will help facilitate a discussion
about how we can be rooted and linked. Hosted by Mark Scandrette and Jarrod
WHEN: Thursday, December 9th @ 9:30am
WHERE: Dolores Park Church, 455 Dolores St SF, CA
