Day One is for Pastors, Parish Staff, and Parish Leadership Team Members Only

Parish staffs and leadership teams will explore the importance of transforming the parish culture to one of life-changing personal encounter with Jesus Christ and receive practical ideas, tools, and resources for creating an environment of encounter at their parish.

Day Two is for all those seeking to be equipped in the work of Unleash the Gospel, including Parishioners, Parish Volunteers, and Lay Ecclesial Ministers.

The lay faithful will deepen their own relationship with Jesus by encountering Christ anew and will be empowered to lead others to encounter Christ through breakout tracks focused on strengthening families in the faith, sharing a personal testimony, creating small group encounters or providing great hospitality.
