General Session and Worship
Don’t miss our NW MinCon worship service.  Doors will open at 8:30 am for seats and we expect to use overflow…so don’t miss out.  Friday’s 8:45 am pre-service features illusionists David and Teesha Laflin.  Saturday’s 8:45 am pre-service features entertainer Keith Coast.  


We will also have some Prizes, FREE STUFF and Surprises for everyone attending the services. There will be a time of great worship and powerful speakers. We don’t often get the chance in ministry to do this without being “on.” So come relax, worship, and enjoy!

If X were the end spot of all our efforts with our kids (biological and influential), how much more intentional would we be if we knew the finite time we had left? Through an Amazon mentality and backward planning process, this session will refine our definition of discipleship and challenge all generations to step into the arena of cultivating others for Christ.

In the Cultivating Authentic Community workshop, we're going to dive deep and discuss how to create thriving communities of real women with vulnerable conversations. It can be easy as Christian leaders to feel like we need to clean ourselves up and put on a face of perfection for others. However, it's actually our courage to be truly vulnerable and admit our need for a Savior that gives us the authority to proclaim Christ's love. Come get some tangible tools to help you vulnerably share your "story" with others, and leave inspired to build an authentic community!

Sticky Church - How to Attract (and Grow) People

It's the number one problem in most churches: attracting and keeping visitors and guests. Even the largest churches struggle with member retention. The reason? They aren't naturally "sticky." They don't have a natural attractiveness to draw and/or retain people. In this insightful workshop, you'll discover the powerful "Rule of 3's" that guide this process. You'll learn what to do to meet the needs of visitors, returning guests and even long-time members. 

Whether you lead a children's ministry, youth ministry, small group or entire church, this session is for you.

Into The Neighborhood
According to John, The Word (Jesus) became flesh and blood and "moved into the neighborhood".  We all live in some version of a neighborhood, but how many of us really live "into" our neighborhoods?  How many of our churches actually live "into" our neighborhoods.  Grace free's us and then we tend to move "into" the church.  What happens when Jesus followers are willing to follow Him out of the doors and into their neighborhoods?  Where and how do we discover that He was there long before we were and doing amazing things, often within plain sight of those who take the time to see, and always with a desire for us to join Him.  This session will explore how to set about on a journey to discover the sacred in the streets and stories of the places we live and the spaces our churches inhabit.  It's really not difficult if only we have the eyes to see.

The Generosity Gap
What does it mean to be generous? And how is generosity changing?

The religious and economic landscapes are changing in America in ways that don’t necessarily favor churches. And on top of that, not everyone seems to agree on what, exactly, it means to be generous.
