About this event


CEM's Catalyst Conference is a one-day conference for encouraging, connecting and equipping church leaders for ministry. Our 2022 conference features Jim Estep, professor at Lincoln Christian Seminary and Dean of Lincoln Christian Institute.

Jim Estep is also the Resources Director at e2: effective elders (, a nonprofit that provides leadership coaching for elder and staff teams. E2:effective elders develops leadership skills by partnering with elders in authentic relationship, providing relevant resources, and presenting training opportunities.

They have published both print and video curricula for elder training, coached dozens of churches, and led over seventy conferences and seminars both in the United States and internationally, in which we have been privileged to meet over 9,500 elders and church leaders.

Christian Evangelistic Mission is excited to bring this expertise to central Iowa for church leadership teams across the region!
