Hear what people are saying about Pushpay Summit.


NOT YOUR STANDARD CHURCH CONFERENCE.

At Summit, you won’t find the biggest name speakers or pastors with the most Facebook likes. You won’t see an amazing light show or worship experience designed to “recharge” or “refuel” you. Instead, you’ll hear from speakers you’ve likely never heard of. From people you probably won’t recognize, who probably have fewer Instagram followers than you. Why? Because they’re the executive pastors and behind-the-scenes business leader who are actually doing the work, every day of the week. They’re not looking to get you to grow their Twitter following or promote their next campus launch. They’re looking to teach you the most important ministry lessons they’ve learned (that you can start using this Sunday).

LEARN FROM THE FRONTLINE

Discover top-notch ministry tactics from the people who work behind the scenes every week.

WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

Network with other people who do the same job as you in ministries of the same size.

LESSONS YOU CAN USE THIS SUNDAY

Bring back tactics you can apply this Sunday. And get your whole team on board.

WHAT MAKES PUSHPAY SUMMIT DIFFERENT?

USEABLE TACTICS

Sure, you might walk away from Summit excited about what you learned. But more importantly, you’ll walk away with a macbook full of ideas for your church you can start using this Sunday. Don’t settle for being inspired: get equipped.

PRACTICAL KEYNOTES

Learn useable ministry lessons from a diverse set of leaders, men and women who have excelled in ministry and business (and can teach you how to do the same).

DEEP BREAKOUTS

Dig into the hardest parts of your job with people who have been there (and have something to teach you about it). Get your toughest questions answered with live Q&A.

MEANINGFUL NETWORKING

Network with peers who have similar job roles at churches of a similar size. Compare notes and exchange contact info as you trade best practices and practical advice.

CONTENT FOR YOUR WHOLE TEAM

Start 2019 the right way: by aligning your entire team around the right goals (and the right tactics to accomplish them). With content focused around leadership, operations, communications, technology, and finance, there’s something for everyone on your staff.

Here to Equip, Not Inspire

That’s why we started Pushpay Summit: for ministry problems that inspiration can’t solve

The Sunday after a church conference: we’ve all been there. You’re stoked. Recharged. Refueled. And then Sunday happens, and you’re back in the thick of things. Volunteers still need to be taught, led, and in the worst instances, fired. Your comms director is still bickering with your lead pastor over the website copy. You still have no idea whether or not your social advertising is working (though you’re certainly still paying for it). There’s 10 fires to put out, hundreds of things that could be better, and thousands and thousands of people who still need to be reached.

And being more excited about it isn’t going to fix anything.

That’s why we started Pushpay Summit: for ministry problems that inspiration can’t solve. Because most church conferences feel more like summer camp for adults—and two weeks after that camp-high is gone, will change last?

That’s not a knock on summer camp (or other church conferences). It’s noting the hard reality that if you’re looking for actual help on how to run your ministry, there aren’t a whole lot of people who you can call for help. And a pretty light show and sweeping speech with a synth pad in the background isn’t going to solve your email marketing problem or make your church board any more functional.

Fortunately, there’s a better way: learning ministry insights from people who faced those problems before you, and overcame them. And meeting other pastors and church staff who are in the exact same situation as you. It’s called Pushpay Summit— a 2-day 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, Puhspay Summit probably isn’t the best fit 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.

See you in Dallas.

WE’RE HERE TO EQUIP YOU AND YOUR TEAM.
WE’LL LEAVE THE INSPIRING UP TO YOU.
