Community

If there’s one thing the last two years have taught us, it’s the value and need for community in our lives.

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 gospel.

People are lonely.
People are anxious.
The world is isolating.

But there’s good news! The Church is finding its stride again and its place in the community as a hub for relationships, engagement, and a vehicle to foster community and family among new and old friends.

WE HAVE GATHERED A DIVERSE GROUP OF OVER 50

THINKERS
COMMUNICATORS
SPEAKERS
AUTHORS
PASTORS
STORYTELLERS
PIONEERS

TO GATHER US TOGETHER FOR SUCH A TIME IS THIS

to welcome the newcomer
show unconditional love and acceptance
and create welcoming environments.

Join us for this virtual experience and free conference which will help you reach, keep, and engage with your guests.
