Event description
CNU26 Pre-Day Event: 2:00 - 7:00 PM, June 11, 2019
Since the CNU-MCC started three years ago at CNU24 in Detroit we have grown in numbers and interest in CNU-MCC sponsored sessions. Last year, for example, the CNU-MCC member led session was standing room only with people in the hallway listening to the presentations. For this reason we decided to host a pre-day event for Christian Caucus members who want to arrive the afternoon before CNU kicks off, and for local Church leaders to learn more about caring for their cities and towns through the New Urban toolkit.     
We have put together a simple program based at Sojourn Church - Midtown, Louisville, to achieve the following goals:

More opportunity for connection and sharing between CNU-MCC members

Connect locals--planners, designers, community developers and local pastors--with each other and with CNU and CNU-MCC members.

A forum for engaging with new urban content/examples/issues that is relevant to Christians, the church and New Urbanists.

SCHEDULE: (2-7 PM. Subject to Change)
2:00 - 3:00 PM - Introduction Session

What is New Urbanism? This session will discuss the key design principles of New Urbanism and how this approach to neighborhood design and planning promotes human flourishing in our built environment.

A Christian Perspective on New Urbanism. This session will highlight how the biblical values of loving our neighbors, seeking the welfare of the city, and working towards a ministry of reconciliation can be manifest in neighborhood design that seeks the common good. 

3:00 - 3:45 PM - Case Studies (led by CNU-MCC members and locals).
3:45 - 4:00 PM - BREAK
4:00 - 4:30 PM - Round Table Discussion 
This will be a time for attendees to discuss with others at their table ther ideas, questions, and thoughts they have about what they have heard throughout the day. Potential questions include: What new and/or significant things did you hear today? How does your church property contribute and/or hinder your efforts to carry out your mission? What are steps you can take to begin promoting the common good through the built environment with your work in the church and/or as an urbanist?
Each table facilitator will share high points of discussion from their table.
4:30 - 4:45 PM - Wrap Up & Prayer
4:45 - 5:30 PM - Louisville Neighborhood Walking Tour 
5:30 - 7:00 PM - Networking Happy Hour / Dinner  (Jay researching this)
