common questions

What is this conference all about?

The Leaders' Summit is a three-day gathering of ministry leaders who come to be retooled for life and ministry, reconnected with friends (both old and new), and refreshed in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through keynote talks, panel discussions, worship, and Intensives, we'll explore what it means to stir up men and women to lead churches towards their most fruitful future.

Who should attend the Leaders’ Summit?

Men and women, ministry leaders and church members, pastors and homemakers and students and writers and everyone in between are invited to help us strive to bring clarity, charity, gospel-saturated, renewal-based thinking and practice to local church life.

First time attender? Here's what you can expect.

We value relationships at Sojourn Network, so you can expect a highly-relational, family-style feel that demonstrates our commitment to partnership, fellowship, and collaboration. During the event you will experience gospel-saturated teaching and singing, prayer and fellowship. You will also receive high-quality, innovative ministry training and resourcing. It is our aim that you leave this event feeling renewed and rejuvenated for a life and ministry that lasts. *Note: During the Late Night Gathering on Tuesday evening we will enjoy good food and drink and outdoors games (alcoholic beverages will be served).

Will Sojourn Network resources be available for purchase?

Yes. Attendees will receive many quality resources for free during the event; however, there will be a diverse array of resources available for purchase at the Sojourn Network booth. You can expect to see new paperback titles released by Sojourn Network Press and various items of Sojourn Network apparel and accessories, such as hoodies, tees, mugs, journals, etc. 

Are their recommended accommodations for the conference?

We suggest booking early and directly (or use KayakTrip AdvisorAirBnB, or similar travel website) to find the best options. 

What is the cancellation policy?

There will be no refunds after October 1st, 2019. Full refunds minus a $50 cancellation fee will be provided for cancellations before October 1st, 2019. No refunds will be provided after that date, though we will permit you to arrange a transfer of your registration to another attendee or donate your unused seat before registration closes on October 22nd, 2019.

Is it possible to attend for just part of the conference?

Attending the Leaders' Summit for one day with a decreased registration rate is not possible. The event is a cumulative event so we suggest attendees fully participate. 

Where can I find a detailed schedule?

The schedule will be posted at www.theleaderssummit.com. Detailed schedules will be sent to attendees the week of the conference.

Will meals be provided?

We will have coffee and snacks to propel you through the event but meals will be on your own. We encourage you to go out to eat will fellow attendees to further conversations sparked by the presenters. A list of delicious options will be sent to attendees the week prior to the event.

Are group discounts available? 

Yes, for groups of five or more attending the Leaders’ Summit. Group discounts are available for general registration tickets until August 31st. There will be no group discounts for Intensive tickets.

Will there be breakout sessions during the Leaders' Summit? 


Is the Leaders' Summit registration separate from the Intensives? 

Yes. Every Leaders' Summit attendee will need to register separately for these events. 

Do I need to register separately for the Intensive I plan to attend? 

Yes. Every Intensive attendee will need to register themselves as soon as possible because space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Are the Intensives free for Sojourn Network pastors & ministry leaders? 

No. Every attendee in an Intensive will need to pay the registration fee in order to attend.

Is childcare available for this event?

Unfortunately we are not able to provide childcare for this event. Nursing mothers will have access to a cry/nursing room during the main sessions of the Leaders' Summit.

Would you like to be considered for a volunteer role? 

Volunteers play an integral role in bringing cohesion, quality, and gospel focus to our conference. In other words, we cannot successfully execute our conference and serve our constituents without the help of volunteers. Our volunteers help set the tone as they set-up the space for conference programs, interface with conference attendees, and are present to support the Sojourn Network team. We ask that our volunteers be faithfully present, flexible, and ready to serve during the event schedule. 

If you are interested in serving the Sojourn Network family as a conference volunteer, contact Kate Killian.

Who do I contact with questions?
