We've all been to church conferences or seminars where great speakers dispense great information. But we have noticed that most of the practical learnings and best practices are shared "in the lobby" where you can engage in an in-depth conversation about real-life issues in your small group ministry. It is these types of conversations that we want to recreate.

We believe that each of us has something to learn AND each of us has something to share. If you lead the Small Group Ministry in your local church and you desire to become better equipped and are willing share your experiences with others, then this gathering is for you.

Why you should attend:

  • A place to network with peers who have similar passions for God, people and small group ministry
  • Opportunities to learn from each other and experts in this ministry field
  • To know you are not alone in the challenges of ministry


  • Table Breakouts on topics that matter for healthy group ministry
  • Panel-led discussions
  • Large Group Keynote Presentation from Rick
  • Time to network and connect

Special Guest:
