In a culture of outrage, it is often difficult to take the time to listen and have healthy conversations. In our congregations, it can be easier to avoid conversations that are potentially difficult than to minister within the tension and brokenness that our people live in. Come join us as we learn how to engage faithfully and reclaim conversations on sexuality, race, gender, mental health, and more.
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires” (James 1:19–20).

Goals & Objectives
The goal of the 2019 All Pastors’ Conference is to equip pastors to have difficult but necessary conversations in the midst of the communities they serve. The conference will do this by raising awareness of critical conversations, creating opportunities for pastors to ask questions and have conversations, and sharing resources with pastors so that they can continue conversations in their own congregations.
It is also key that speakers, pastors, and leaders of the conference set a tone and model what it looks like to have these conversations in a way that honors people.
1) Equip pastors to have difficult conversations in their communities;
2) Raise awareness of critical conversations;
3) Create opportunities for pastors to ask questions and have conversations;
4) Give pastors resources to continue conversations in their own congregations.
