What is this conference all about?

The Leaders’ Summit is a three-day gathering of ministry leaders who come to be re-tooled for life and ministry, reconnected with friends, and refreshed in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through keynote talks, worship, breakout sessions and pre-conferences, we’ll explore what it means to stir up men and women to lead whole, thriving, healthy churches.

Who should attend the Leaders’ Summit?

Men and women, ministry leaders, lead and lay pastors, anyone who is involved in leading or serving a church, or anyone who wants to learn more about the SN family.

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 in a wholehearted, thriving church. *Note: During the Late Night Gathering on Tuesday evening we will enjoy good food and drink and outdoors games (alcoholic beverages will be served).

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.
