Intersection Conference 2019


The Intersection Conference is a missional greenhouse for Anglican leaders who want to engage culture. Each year, this group of leaders will exchange ideas, share strategies for disciple-making in a post-Christian North America, and explore new ways of re-missioning the Church. The conference will also birth Learning Communities, local vehicles for continuing the conversation about mission in contemporary culture.

Each Intersection Conference will explore a core element of mission, and discuss the other elements in relation to it.

  • 2017: Gospel
  • 2018: Culture
  • 2019: Missional Ecclesiology
  • 2020: Missional Leadership
  • 2021: God’s Empowering Presence
