A premier, one-day church conference designed to help forward-thinking pastors and staff grow in leadership, technology, and communications.
August 16th, 2018
Hosted at McGlohon Theatre (Elevation Uptown)
HERE TO EQUIP, NOT INSPIRE
There are conferences, books, videos, podcasts, and countless other sources of inspiration for you and your team. But when it comes to actual tech insights in the church, sophisticated social media strategies, and proven leadership tactics that really work in the 21st century, you’re lucky if you’ve got one good resource. Most business books are just that—business books. And most church conferences are more church than conference.
Featuring: The Totally-Aligned Church Staff
THE FEARLESS EXECUTIVE PASTOR
Get insight into leading your team and congregation that goes deeper than a three-point sermon and a story about a puppy. Turn a one day investment in yourself and your team into a new season of growth, thanks to practical, ready-to-use leadership tactics.
THE CONNECTED COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
Start delivering your message with the poise and precision it deserves. Get actual insight in the ways social media, email, and communications technology can help you spread your church’s message further. Then go do it, thanks to practical insights you can start implementing on the flight home.
THE EMPOWERED CHURCH TECHNOLOGIST
Technology shouldn’t be a dirty word in church. And now, thanks to practical insights and a behind-the-scenes look into how other churches are leveraging tech every day of the week, it doesn’t have to be. Take back church tech. Take it back now.

Faith-Based Partnerships Leader
Nona is passionate about helping communities of faith achieve their goals. At Facebook, she forms partnerships with organizations like yours. And as the co-pastor of a church, she understands how to communicate in a way that compels communities towards action. She’d love to show you how social media and your church can work together as a team.
Founder & CEO
Scott founded charity: water and flipped the script on modern fundraising. He helped get clean water to people who didn’t have it before, and he’s reached demographics that are traditionally less generous with cause-driven branding and a unique approach to fundraising. He’d love to help build your brand to reach donors.
Founder & Lead Pastor
Pastor Steven Furtick is the Founder and Lead Pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC—a church community recognized as one of America’s largest and fastest-growing churches. He is the New York Times Best Selling author of Crash the Chatterbox, Greater, Sun Stand Still, (Un)Qualified, and Seven-Mile Miracle. He’d love to help you strengthen your community and grow your church by embracing technology solutions.
CEO & Co-Founder
With his co-founder, Chris envisioned a consumer-friendly mobile commerce solution that would help increase generosity, simplify processes, and reduce costs. All along, Chris’s goal has been to increase participation in communities. Chris is passionate about getting ahead of the technological curve, and he would love to help you realize your vision.
Carey is a former lawyer, founding pastor of Connexus Church, and a bestselling author. Carey’s wide range of expertise has given him a unique perspective on leadership and personal growth. During a live Q&A session with Scott Harrison, he says he would love to unravel the “one thing” you need to know about generating a following.
WE’RE HERE TO EQUIP YOU AND YOUR TEAM. WE’LL LEAVE THE INSPIRING UP TO WHAT YOU DO NEXT.
Let’s be honest—a lot of church conferences feel more like church services. Which is great until you run into a ministry problem that needs more than just motivation to overcome. Problems like…
- Where do you go when you want the communications insights of the business world in the context of the church?
- Why is it so hard to get insights into technology (without an engineering degree)?
- Who do you turn to when you need to understand why and how leadership in the church has changed in the last decade?
That’s why we started Summit—to have the hard conversations that net actual results. The inspired bit is up to you and what you choose to do with the practical insights and value-packed tactics you’ll learn here.
THE CHURCH CONFERENCE THAT’S NOT FOR EVERYONE.
The Summit One Day isn’t for everyone. It’s a 24-hour intensive look at the most pressing issues facing ministries in the 21st century. So, if you’re looking for a conference to teach you how to preach better, run children’s ministry, or just looking for a low pressure environment to hang out with other pastors, the Summit One Day isn’t for you. But if you’re ready to listen to applicable keynotes, and you’re ready to have hard conversations, we have a seat ready for you.
