FIRST IMPRESSIONS CONFERENCE
Every church has a back door.
We help you close it.
The average church guest makes up their mind if they’ll come back for a second visit within 7 minutes of driving in the parking lot.
Long before you step into the pulpit and deliver the sermon you’ve been working on all week, people are deciding if they’ll come back for a second visit.
we’re here to encourage you, not shame you.
We’ve been right where you are and have felt the way you are feeling. We teach principles and systems that can be applied to churches of all sizes, and we theme each conference to stretch and challenge you to break new barriers.
Learn from leaders at:
You aren’t failing.
Your systems are.
When you decided to go into ministry, it was because you felt a call to seek and save the lost, to make disciples, to fulfill the Great Commission.
But somewhere along the way the pressure of Sunday coming week after week after week took over and your focus shifted from reaching new people to teaching the ones already in your church.
This tension has left you feeling like you’re failing to make disciples in your community.
That’s normal. Every pastor experiences this frustration at one point or another.
Here’s how we help:
Hear from others in your shoes
“The First Impressions Conference is a great opportunity to hear from some amazing speakers on a variety of topics. There are sessions for people across the organization to gain relevant and timely information to help them shape and execute their mission. After the conference you will feel encouraged about the importance of what you do and challenged to improve and innovate on how you do it.”
– Rob McEwan, Environments Director – Traders Point Christian Church
“I have attended many worthwhile conferences in my ministry career. While I had full confidence this conference would be worthwhile I was hesitant to attend another virtual event. I was BLOWN away with the exceptional speakers, expansive content, the flow and ease in the schedule, and the high quality of video and audio. This is in the top 3 of all time conferences I’ve attended! Thank you Greg and team for all your hard work!”
– Julie Priestley, Fowlerville UB Church
“The First Impressions Conference is a conference where you get an incredible ROI. The information is so applicable and inspiring and will help take any church to the next level. It’s like drinking from a fire hydrant, but the access you get to the sessions afterward help you drink in all the information slowly. We are already registered for next year.”
JT Terrazas, Lead Pastor – Hope City Community Church
“I LOVE this conference! So much practical information and inspiration, not only for myself as the leader, but also for my team. I also love the community that has formed and the ideas and encouragement that are shared even after the conference is over. I highly recommend this to anyone serving in church ministry!!”
– Kim Shelton, Crossroads Community Church
