Let’s network as we look back to move forward In the Ways of Jesus. ConNext Summit 2022 is an opportunity for congregational leaders to process what has been (through Sara Thomsen‘s music and Theater of Public Policy creators, DangerBoat Productions!) as we reimagine how we do what we do. Gracious Idleness awaits those who are tired and who seek inspiration; Scrappy Transformation is sparked by leaders already finding joy in creative ministry (workshop overviews and bios are here); Radical Belonging is yours amidst multi-denominational colleagues from around the state as we laugh, learn, rest, Zumba, and explore God’s desired future together. Find details and registration here. Early bird registration is available until August 31 – register now! October 16-18, 2022.
