Event Details

Unfortunately, due to low registration, the City of God: Philadelphia conference has been canceled. 

The City of God: Philadelphia conference provides an intimate learning laboratory where Christian leaders from the greater Philadelphia area will be inspired, encouraged, and networked together in understanding and working out God’s vision for the city.

On October 24-26, we will be energized as we explore a theology of urban transformation and engage with practitioners who are leading thought provoking and creative ministries throughout Philadelphia. 

Join us as we share, network, learn practical tools, and visit local examples of community transformation initiatives!
