About The Summit

Summit is a three-day, interactive conference focused on connecting leading growth and engagement experts of fast-growing churches with pastors, church leaders, and church staff. This year’s theme is nurturing the community member journey to drive engagement, participation, and generosity in your community. Join us and keynote speakers, Seth Godin and Blue Van Dyke of Christ’s Church of the Valley, for a conference you can’t afford to miss.
