ASKING QUESTIONS IS A GREAT PLACE TO START

Cultivating Kingdom Culture compels us to arrange our conversations, thoughts, plans, and prayers around what God is doing now and ask, "How are we impacting the mission of Jesus?"

You’re invited into the conversation with leaders from across denominations to discover together, as the Church, ways to sustain the present move of God in today's culture. With a focus on prayer, evangelization, renewal in the Spirit, and unity in the body of Christ, the conference is a time we collectively ask the Holy Spirit to come and transform our lives, churches, communities, and nation.  

We believe God is igniting a movement of His power and presence and we get to be a part of it.  

We hope you’ll join us!
