Summit 2019
Summit 2019: For Church Leaders Who Are Ready To Grow

January 30-31, 2019

Dallas, TX

Hosted at Gateway’s Dallas Campus

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.

That’s why we’re so excited to introduce the Summit lineup:

The Summit 2019 Lineup


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.


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.


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.


Sure, everyone loves free coffee and a bag of themed swag and giveaways. And practical, ready-to-use tactics and tips you can start using in your church the same week? Even better. But the real power of the Summit happens when you get your whole team aligned on your church’s strategy and one-year plan. Don’t just take our word for it—bring your team to the Summit 2019 to experience it for yourself.

Keynote Speakers

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 (when you don’t need an engineering degree to understand)?
  • 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. We leave being inspired to what you choose to do with the practical insights and value-packed tactics you’ll learn here.


Summit isn’t for everyone. It’s 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, Summit 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.
