Conspire Gathering: May 3-5th 2016

We Are Convinced
A Conspiracy Is Needed.

We want to subvert the small story of church competition and awaken our collective imagination for how we join in God’s renewing/restoring/reconciling work happening in neighborhoods all around us.

We’re gathering to conspire together.

Join together with global thought leaders and innovative practitioners from across the region and let’s scheme together. It’s time to plot out a collaborative future that can make an on-the-ground difference. If you’re part of a faith community looking to grow neighborhood renewal.
