via Throckmorton: Resurgence 2014 conference cancelled

Earlier this year Wenatchee The Hatchet noted that there might not be a Jesus Festival this August 2014.  Warren Throckmorton has spotted another thing, an official cancellation

2014 Resurgence Conference Cancellation Notice

The Resurgence Conference has always been born out of our love of Jesus and the church, and the desire to support efforts to grow leaders to grow churches. Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel this year’s conference due to unforeseen changes to our speaker line-up and other challenges we believe would make it difficult to provide the quality of conference people have come to expect from Resurgence. Anyone who has already purchased a ticket will be receiving a prompt refund. Thank you for your support of Resurgence and the ministries of Mars Hill Church.

Per Throckmorton, the originally planned line up can be observed at the following link

So it kind of looks like Mars Hill beat budget again for the last fiscal year but there were still layoffs and it looks like both the Jesus Festival and the Resurgence 2014 conference got cancelled.  Mars Hill Schools would be the collaborative project to commit to amongst the expansion work being pursued and since Corban and Western Seminary already have the infrastructural and administrative cultures that don't need to be made from scratch this would be the project least apt to be negatively effected by either shifting donation levels or unanticipated changes in membership on the Board of Advisors and Accountability.
