This conference will inspire you to transform the city you are a leader in. You may not know what your next steps are in your city. However, God can use this conference to reveal to you what those steps are. Each speaker has had extensive experience being a part of a city in which God has called them to make a difference in. They have encountered numerous challenges, miracles and everything in between. You will have the opportunity to turn their words of wisdom into stepping stones of inspiration to move you to the next great level in your church. 

This conference will be able to bring your God-given vision to life as you connect with other urban leaders and hear their stories. You will be able to interact with people who are in a variety of places; recently planted a church, is a leader in their church, or have been leading their church for over 20 years. People will share their visions with you and explain how they have gotten to where they are, how they are continuing to move forward, and you can do the same.

You were invited to this conference for a very specific reason, you are an influencer in an urban community where God has called you to be. This conference will provide a solid knowledge base for city life and the role the church plays in this. No church is perfect. We all must continue to learn and gain wisdom from those around us. This event will enable you to do this as he speaks through those around you. Each piece of information you will learn will be able to be applied to your church in a very strategic and intentional way.
