CONNEXT SUMMIT 2022!!

Clergy, faith formation leaders – staff & volunteer – let’s gather in community to process the past few years as we get inspired to move forward In the Ways of Jesus.

ConNext Summit 2022 will have ample Gracious Idleness in beautiful surroundings to renew your spirit; workshops full of Scrappy Transformations to inspire reimagined ministry; and Radical Belonging to usher you into more life-giving and sustainable modes of community.

Scrumptious happy hours; community building music (with Sara Thomsen!); and laughter (fueled by Theater of Public Policy creators, DangerBoat Productions!) will be balm for your soul.

Register by August 31 to receive the early bird pricing; but it’s a great deal no matter what!

Find details and registration here; workshop overviews and bios are here. Early bird registration is available until August 31 – register now!

THE MINISTRY LAB’S INPUT SURVEY

Please complete our short survey so we can serve you better!

Your responses will help us gain insight in how existing resources are utilized – and where we can improve what to offer and how we offer it. Responses will also inform our in-the-works antiracism toolkit for rural and smaller congregations.

It should take about 15 minutes.

Your input is very valuable; we thank you for your time!
