Where Do We Go
From Here?

265 leaders from 25 states, Canada, Antigua, Barbados,

St. Kitts and Nevis, and the Virgin Islands

participated in the 2022 Hybrid Conference In-Person or Online

We are all experiencing some seismic shifts.

Since our last in-person gathering in February 2020, the World and the Church have been enduring unprecedented seismic shifts. After a year of well-received online webinars, we are excited to offer a new hybrid option for our 2022 Conference.


Join us in-person at Spirit of Joy Church in Orlando, Florida OR online. 


The 2022 Conference content is centered around the theme SEISMIC SHIFTS: Where Do We Go From Here? which is grounded  in the witness of Psalm 46: 1-2..."God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and the mountains shake." 


Four large group sessions will focus on a particular shift:

  • Public Church (Winston Persaud)

  • Hybrid Church  (Joe and Jess Liles)

  • Adaptive Church (Tod Bolsinger)

  • Thriving Church  (Stephanie Spellers)

Read more about our presenters and workshop options. All Conference proceeds continue to benefit the ELCA Fund for Leaders.

Proceeds Benefit

 ELCA Fund For Leaders

Nearly $9,000 raised in 2022!

The ELCA Fund for Leaders has provided $25 million in scholarship support for over 1,000 seminary students since 2000. The fund’s long-range goal is to provide full-tuition support for every candidate attending an ELCA seminary. To help future leaders and to bless the church, Ignite the Church Conference presenters donate their time so that all conference proceeds can be given to the Fund for Leaders. Since its inception in 2017, nearly $17,000 has been donated. Thanks for your generosity!
