As Christians today, it seems we are at our most hopeless, pessimistic moment. We are vulnerable and fragile. As the culture changes around us, many of us are anxious. Many of us believe that the Church is dying. If we’re honest, many of us feel just like the disciples did when Jesus was crucified. But out of that dark shadow came a bright new beginning: resurrection.

The LEAD Conference creates a space where leaders can come together to share their failures, successes, ideas, and dreams. We’ll supply the space, the food, and the hotel, but we need you. We need your participation, your ideas, your challenges, your perspectives, and your stories. So register now before it’s too late! Registration will close once we reach 85 people.
