reTHINK Apologetics – Minnesota

David Imboden

Are the students in your home, church, or youth group prepared for what lies ahead? Sadly, most Christian students are ill-prepared for an aggressive secular campus and culture. It’s time to step up the training of our young people. Stand to Reason will help you do just that. Join us at one of our two-day reTHINK Apologetics Student Conferences in California, Minnesota, Texas, or Alabama.

The Story of Grace – Rooted 2020 (Youth Ministry) – Birmingham, AL

David Imboden

Rooted Ministry offers a unique, simple annual conference in the world of ministry to youth. Rooted Ministry begins with the Gospel as the starting point and considers all matters in student ministry and youth culture from that axis. These conferences feature great preaching, engaging biblical teaching, practical workshops, sincere worship and the most intimate atmosphere you’ve ever encountered at a conference. Just the Gospel, relationships and conversations.

This year we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in Birmingham, Alabama on October 8-10 at the Cathedral Church of the Advent (2017 6th Avenue North). We have a great line-up of speakers and workshops. Registration will open for past conference attendees on January 1, and to all others on January 15. Because it is in our hometown, we do anticipate a sell-out, so we encourage you to register early.

The Flagship Church Conference 2020 (Military Missions)

David Imboden

Held on a biennial basis, the Flagship Church Conference is for individuals connected to military community churches and ministries which are stategically engaged in missional military ministry. The conference is built around interaction and sharing from think tanks and learning communities which begin about a month before the conference gathering. Although many participants participate in a think tank or learning community it is not a requirement in order to attend the conference. The goal is to encourage each participating church and ministry in the development of their missional ministry strategy. Stories and examples of best practices are shared throughout the conference.

The Flagship Church Conference is for pastors and church leaders, denominational and network leaders, chaplains, para-church ministry leaders, and active and retired military.

Exponential Regional (Church Multiplication) – Washington DC

David Imboden

Together Theme
Pursuing the Great Collaboration

What is missing from many of our efforts and strategies? Doing it Together! We are all very familiar with the Great Commission and the challenge to “Go.” There has been much taught on the Great Commandment and the need to go with “Love.” But it is the last part of Jesus’ mission – which was Jesus’ final prayer – that we have forgotten. It’s the Great Collaboration – that we are to go in love Together!

“…that they may be as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me…” John 17:22-23

CAFO “Small Matters” (Orphans & Foster Care) – both Virtual & In-Person

David Imboden

With the fresh uptick in COVID, large gatherings may not be possible in September. So CAFO is seizing the opportunity to go small. On September 10 & 11, CAFO2020 will take new shape! Rather than traveling to Dallas, you’ll have the chance to join with others in your region — either virtually or in-person — with local events across the country and global network events in countries worldwide.

Thursday, September 10 will include focused interactive intensives for parents, organization leaders, advocates and more — all virtual.

Friday, September 11 will include small groups gathering by region (both virtually and in-person) for the live CAFO-wide SMALL MATTERS event followed by afternoon deep-dive tracks.
