Resilience is the ability to bounce back from life and ministry's extraordinary challenges, and is grounded in life-giving relationships. How are the followers of Jesus to grow in the resilience needed to sustain a call to practice Christian Community Development?

We anticipate another life-giving gathering in 2017. Each year, conference speakers, workshops, site visits and conversations with like-minded people cultivate an environment where attendees are inspired and retooled. We hope to facilitate a safe place for honest conversation, thoughtful engagement, worship, and rest among a group of truly diverse attendees. We are grateful for the opportunity to rally around the pursuit of (re) conciliation and biblical justice.
