Drawing richly from their experiences in urban mission and ministry, plenary speakers Ray Bakke, Karen Wilk and Eric O. Jacobsen will inspire and equip pastors, church leaders, and the whole missional people of God to bring the eye of the exegete one who critically interprets to the context of the local neighbourhood.

This conference will equip you to address questions like these:

    • How does my faith bear upon the places where I live, work and play?
    • How is God present in my neighbourhood, and what does he want me to do about it?
    • How can I equip my church to meaningfully engage with those closest to us, our neighbours?

Learn from these speakers and be re-inspired to live, love, and serve right where you are.
