4D LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Calling all church leaders and volunteers! RENEW is going to be a deeply valuable time of discipleship, fellowship and leadership development. A jam-packed day awaits, with keynote sessions from guest speakers Graham Hill & Grace Ji-Sun Kim. Hear incredible stories from within our movement in our new “GODx Talks”, and get equipped with valuable electives from a range of church leaders.
(Before April 15!)
Our newsfeeds are filled with inequality, division, and fear. A pandemic has ravaged the world and changed the way we do church and ministry. We want to make a difference and see justice and healing restored because Jesus calls us to be a peacemaking, healing, and reconciling people. But how do we do this?
Based on their work with diverse churches, colleges, and other organizations, Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Graham Hill will offer Christian practices that can bring healing and hope to a broken world. In this conference, Graham and Grace will provide ten ways to transform society, including lament, reconciliation, peacemaking, relinquishing power, and more. Embodying these practices enables us to show the world Jesus’s justice, peace, and love.
Grace and Graham’s book “Healing Our Broken Humanity” won Outreach Magazine’s 16th Annual Resource of the Year award. In this conference, they will help pastors and ministry teams explore practices for revitalizing the church and renewing the world. With a range of speakers sharing, live worship and diverse electives, let’s gather with volunteers and leaders across our family of churches and discover here how to bring real change to a hurting world.
