The Advance 2019 - less than 2 weeks away!

Updated: Feb 22, 2019

The Advance 2019 is now less than 2 weeks away! We are very excited for this event and looking forward to seeing as many of our network leaders! We will consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds in our city, in our church, and as individuals. This two-day workshop, features YOU and your leaders in conversation, testimonies from local networks, keynote presentations, prayer, and worship as a regional united Body. The heartbeat of the event is roundtable discussions with those from your community as you work out your faith together.


As local networks gather their key leaders at this year’s Advance, we hope your network walks away with one clear objective at the end of the time together of how to move forward toward the Kingdom in your city.
