Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

The Great Commission is one of the more famous passages in the Bible for Christians, but how is it being lived out today? Increasingly in our busy and impersonal western culture, it is tempting to question whether this master plan is still possible. Perhaps this is why Jesus chose the least likely of candidates, in the most hostile of circumstances, to lay the foundation for this multiplying movement. By His grace we get to be a part of it! The original disciples were untrained, everyday men and women, not religious professionals. But Jesus modeled the way forward and promised He would never leave them, and they took Him at His Word.

The goal of our conference is to foster growth and refreshment for all of us as disciples of Jesus. We’re going to dig into the Scriptures together and explore God’s plan to empower each of us as His sons and daughters, touching the lives of our neighbors with a ripple effect into the nations! For families with young children (5th grade and under), we’ll also have a dynamic kids’ discipleship track complete with a bouncy castle. Do you like NavPress books? We’re thrilled to announce our friends from Colorado Springs will be back as well! Lastly thanks to your feedback, we’ve created more space in the schedule for you to further connect with new and old friends from around our city.
