Leading for Mission Conference 2018 Header

‘There’s nothing like the local church when the local church is working right – it’s the hope of the world.’ Bill Hybels


Leading for Mission Conference 2018

Two of the most important flywheels for ministry are leadership and evangelism. Leadership allows others to thrive in their gifts and evangelism invites them into a better story. Yet the experience for many church leaders is that vision leaks and evangelism evaporates! How then can a church reach its full redemptive potential?

Church leaders and their ministry teams are invited to join Bill Hybels and guests as they address this and other mission related questions.
