First Impressions Conference Fall 2021 - First Impressions Conference First Impressions Conference Fall 2021

Unprecedented

That was the word that became infamous in 2020.
Let’s be honest.
It was a brutal year.

Pastors are tired.
Leaders are tired.
Your volunteers are exhausted.

Thankfully, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Churches and society as a whole are opening back up, and we’re going to need to be at our best to engage a lost and hurting world with the good news.

We have gathered a diverse group of over 40

Thinkers
Communicators
Speakers
Authors
Storytellers
Pastors
Pioneers

TO ENCOURAGE US

to dream again
inspire
those we oversee
lead
like never before

Join us on this adventure of reaching and engaging with guests both in-person and online.
