Church Leadership Conference

Living Out the Great Commission

The 2019 Great Commission Initiative Summit will inspire and empower your congregation to take Christ to their local, national, and global neighborhoods. Keynote presentations will address common fears and questions that derail efforts to share the Gospel, and a wide range of breakout sessions will provide actionable insights and tools to increase knowledge, build confidence, and generate action.

The Great Commission Initiative Summit will provide sermon series with Small Group curriculum that will mobilize members to live out the Great Commission and help every person in your congregation become more comfortable and competent in their ability to share Christ, so register early because space is limited!
