Neighboring: The Movement


  • South Carolina Baptist convention 190 Stoneridge Dr Columbia, SC 29210 (map)

Join us as we introduce this new initiative called Neighboring: The Movement. Hear from professional “neighborers” and network with other leaders. Walk away with practical ideas on how to do this in your context.

Mary Schaller is the former president of Q Place, a ministry that empowers Christians to launch small groups for spiritual seekers.  After twenty-two years as an entrepreneurial marketer and a founder of three technology-related business ventures in Silicon Valley and the Boston high-tech corridor, Mary turned her attention to ministry in 1999, as a minister of small groups at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in the San Francisco bay area and then led Q Place for ten years before retiring in the Spring of 2018. She has an M. Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary (2006) and is the author of How to Start a Q Place and the coauthor of The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations.  With a deep passion for the Great Commission, she is currently the board co-chair of Explore God Chicago.  She is married to Paul, has three adult children, one of which graduated from Wheaton College in 2003, and five grandchildren.
