Sharing Jesus in a Secular Age


The challenges facing the church are deeper than just institutional decline. We live in a culture where not even belief in God is assumed—let alone Jesus, let alone church participation. How might the Holy Spirit be calling us to communicate the gospel in such a context? That's what this year's Faithful Innovation Summit is all about.

What's the Summit?


The Faithful Innovation Summit is a yearly gathering of leaders discerning how God is calling us to address core challenges of Christian faith and practice in the 21st century.

More than just a conference, the Summit is an experience. Participate in experiments and workshops, network with likeminded leaders, and learn on-the-ground wisdom from ministry practitioners as passionate as you.

The Summit Experience


What Will I Learn?

Help folks make meaning in a world where each of us has access to the full scope of human knowledge in our back pockets. How and why should we share the story of Jesus when there are billions of stories to choose from?
