2006 City Impact Roundtable Conference (CIR) in Austin (for Texas region),
Francis Frangipane;  Dr. John Praise Daniel from Abuja, Nigeria; Phil Miglioratti, & others
Friday July 28 and Saturday, July 29, 2006.

There is an unusual growth of  the city-reaching-city-impacting streams in North America and across the globe.
Strong citywide/regional churches, ministries and marketplace networks with a kingdom-size vision of global evangelism are
emerging into the scene. They are compassionate. They are team players. They are sharing too. They are not another prayer
ministry; but a house of prayer for all nations. They keep it simple. Pray. Care. Share. New wineskin for new wine!

There is an emergence of City Churches and city-reaching organizations all across Texas; such inspire our spirits, stir our creative
juices, and motivate us to take action. Big or small, it’s a kingdom-size Church and marketplace ministries. A people on the cutting
edge of what God is doing now.

City Churches facilitate unity in “The Church”, they break out of the Church ghettos into the community, break down racial barriers and
break out of the status quo and release men and women God has called into their calling and ministry. They network and
collaborate. They thank God and support women in leadership. They are enthusiast of ministry of reconciliation, creativity, revival and
spiritual awakening and City transformation.

Mission America Coalition gathers leaders regionally and across North America in a roundtable each year. This is the forth annual
regional CIR in Austin, TX. Christian leaders including Pastors, marketplace ministers and everyone with a city-sized and kingdom-
centered vision from cities across Texas shall meet as we have done in the pervious years, in Austin, to pray and discuss together,
how “the whole Church can work together in showing and telling the whole Gospel to the whole City and beyond.”  2006 City Impact
Roundtable Conference (CIR) shall be held between July 28 and 29 in Austin at the beautiful Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game
Ranch and Pavilion, Austin. This ranch and conference center is one of the best conference ranches/centers in TX. It’s going to be a
treat! Our team is Pray, Care and share in City-reaching.

Rev. Phil Miglioratti, the leader of National Pastors Prayer Network will facilitate the two-day roundtable meeting which is put together
by a network of statewide convening team, facilitated by C. Benjamin Anyacho in Austin. Last year’s CIR conference was attended by
about 130 leaders from more than 90 networks, churches/ministries and businesses, including elected officials. This year, CIR will
be kick off with a pre-conference Transformational Unity Night for leaders of Networks, denominations, pastors and church workers,
city-reachers, marketplace ministers, elected officials, at
Church of the Hills, Cedar Park, TX, Thursday, July 27, 7:00PM. Speaker:
Francis Frangipane.  Worship will lead by COTH worhip team.

This conference provides a rare opportunity to connect meaningfully with men and women with practical, real-world passion for what
we see God’s Spirit doing in defined geographical contexts in Texas.  We can Pray, Care and Share in City-reaching.  We are
committed and desperate to see an outbreak of God in our cities across Texas:  Full-blown city/regional transformation!  We ask both
city-reaching/transformation practitioners and strategic thinkers to invest twenty-four hours stepping outside the “religious box” of
what has been, and envision how God might want us to increase Kingdom impact in our communities, cities, and regions of Texas.

Biography of Francis Frangipane

Francis Frangipane is currently serving as the senior leader of River of Life Ministries in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He and his wife,
Denise, reside near Cedar Rapids and have five grown children. Francis has been instrumental in uniting thousands of pastors from
various denominational and racial backgrounds in hundreds of cities. With over a million copies of his best-selling books in print,

founder of In Christ’s Image Training, which is an online school that is currently reaching to students in over 50 nations. His weekly
email message is received and distributed to thousands. A frequent guest to Christian television, Pastor Francis is anointed to bring
the likeness of Christ to those who hear him.

Francis Frangipane is the author of the following publications:

The Three Battlegrounds: an in-depth view of three arenas of spiritual warfare: the mind, the church and the heavenly places.

Holiness, Truth, and the Presence of God: a powerful and penetrating study of the human heart and how God prepares it for His glory.

This Day We Fight: exhorts the Church to break off the bondage of a passive spirit. As we stand at the cusp of a major spiritual
awakening in our land, the Holy Spirit is ready to impart a fresh anointing to God's people--an anointing that will activate the "war
mode" in your heart.

The Power of One Christlike Life: a hopeful message that will cause you to drop your stones, fall to your knees, and intercede with
love and mercy on behalf of sinners.

The House of the Lord: a challenging and inspirational look at the Lord's view of the church and its commission to turn cities toward

The Stronghold of God: an uplifting companion to those who are serious about walking in God's fullness during these difficult days.

The Power of Covenant Prayer: takes the reader to a position of victory over witchcraft and curses.

The Days of His Presence: a fresh, powerful view into the destiny of the church at the end of this age.

In Christ’s Image Basic Training Manuals: Christlikeness, Humility, Prayer and Unity.  Perfect for leadership teams, prayer groups,
Bible studies and individuals who are seeking to possess a more Christlike life.  

Pastor Francis also is a contributor to Charisma, Morningstar Journal and other magazines.

City Impact Roundtable Conference 2006 Conference Format
The City Impact Roundtable Conference brings together pastors, teachers, evangelist, prophets, apostles, marketplace leaders,
ministries, veteran city practitioners and local city/regional officials to earnestly seek God and process together the challenges of
implementing functional models of the "city church" that have measurable, transformational impact in defined communities, cities
and geographic areas.

CIR is a peer-to-peer learning community, a virtual mosaic of personalities and city-reaching approaches. This diversity is
intentional, and healthy. At this gathering, we have purposed not to plan formal inputs or "BIG" teachings. Leaders from numerous
city-reaching models will be in the mix. We use a design with an open format that will allow us to honestly and freely process issues
together, bring our intercessory burdens to the Lord, build more meaningful and purposeful relationships, and discover what's really
on the city impact pad in this watershed season in Texas and our various cities.

What happened during the last three years' CIR in Austin is building-block  for a wider CIR this year for anyone involved in the city-
reaching/ transformation paradigm.

All conference participants are expected to take an active role in this conference that will be a "shirt-sleeve" working roundtable
focused on discerning and implementing collaborative evangelism in our cities. What's working? What are we finding truly effective
penetrating a culture increasingly ambivalent or resistant to the gospel? What national, state, regional and city resources are
available? How do we do a better job of releasing a kingdom synergy when practitioners, pastors, denominations and evangelistic
organizations work more intentionally together? How do we get beyond competing for the same "market share" of souls, and make
Christ known more effectively to our culture and subcultures?

We invite you to CIR 2006.  CIR is a valuable forum developing Vision and Vital Partnerships to Penetrate, Saturate, and Impact all
Sectors of our Communities with the Love and Presence our lord Jesus Christ!

Serving Him through serving others,

C. Benjamin Anyacho

several other kingdom-centered ministries/churches and organizations brought leaders to the table for prayer, outreach-focused
fellowship to create trust and establish partnership and collaboration.
