Q Commons Conference Facilitates Cultural Conversations Among Christians

On Thursday, Oct. 24 from 7-9 p.m. at the Oxford University United Methodist Church, Oxford community members are invited to attend Q Commons, a live event with both local and national speakers to educate Christians on how to bring hope and leadership to communities.

Q Commons is an event that brings Q National to local communities to engage in conservation about our cultural movement that is shaping the world. National speakers of this event include Malcolm Gladwell, author of five New York Times bestsellers, Francis Chan, best-selling author of “Crazy Love” and former teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church, and Rebekah Lyons, national speaker and bestselling author of “You Are Free” and “Freefall to Fly.”

Local leaders within the community that will be speaking at the event include Interim Oxford Police Chief Jeff McCutchen, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at The University of Mississippi Brandi Hephner LaBanc, and founder of Operation Life Vision Alex Coleman.

“The leadership of our community is interested in bringing together faith-based organizations and people across the denominational spectrum to have a different kind of conversation about what it means to be committed to the common good here in Oxford,” said Chris McAlilly, associate minister at Oxford-University United Methodist Church.

This event is co-sponsored by Listen First Project and Chick-Fil-A. Attendees at the event will get the opportunity to have cultural conservations with fellow community members on different topics.

Speaker Pat Ward thinks that Q Commons is a great opportunity to practice the art of being a good neighbor to help benefit the community.

“I am definitely excited to hear three wonderful local speakers and three national speakers, but most exciting is the conversations we will have the evening of Oct. 24,” said Graham Bodie, Chief Listening Officer at Listen First Project and Professor of Integrated Marketing Communication at the University of Mississippi.

“We will gather together, get to know each other, and model what it means to listen first to understand; and through the connections we make, start to wrestle with what exactly it means to create a better future in the city of Oxford.”
