You will explore with other church leaders how Jesus grows His church through a divine-human dance of cooperation.  You will come away refreshed and equipped with renewed confidence in how Jesus Christ is working through His Church to advance the Kingdom of God!

“The Growing the Church conference was life-changing and faith-changing for me. I had been feeling overwhelmed at the information-overload of ministry tips, tricks, and advice coming at me, and discouraged that any of it would make a difference at my church. This conference both simplified things (follow the Holy Spirit, not the latest church-growth expert) and made ministry more exciting (there are no limits to what is possible when the Spirit is part of the equation). I came away from it refreshed and more hopeful than I’d been in years. That hope has carried over into my church, and I’ve watched seeds planted, take root, and begin to grow in the two years since I attended.”
