Payne Lecture features founder of experimental community
Please join us for the 2014 Payne Lecture featuring the Rev. Jimmy Bartz, lead minister and founder of Thad's, a seven year old community in the Diocese of Los Angeles founded with a mission to reach people who would not otherwise darken the doors of one of our traditional parishes.
Creative approaches to the study of scripture, composition of original music, innovative approaches to spiritual discipline and expression of faith make Thad's a lively and growing spiritual family attracting all sorts and kinds of Los Angelenos. Jimmy is also recently engaged in work with RedBull's High Performance Program adapting spiritual disciplines for athletes in order to enhance athletic performance.

"Fear, Risk, Courage, Failure, Intimacy, Change, Mission and The Kingdom"
The Rev. Jimmy Bartz will address the privilege of following Jesus, building Christian community and living in the Kingdom of Heaven at a time of great cultural and religious transformation. He will pay particular attention to Christian virtue and practice and how each informs mission and offers refreshment to the pilgrim and the church experiencing the stress and real challenge of change.
