Crosswalk Church is excited to hold their first Conference in 2022. With the theme of “Momentum” the Crosswalk Conference seeks to be a resource and an opportunity for anyone to come and learn about creating momentum in your local congregation, small group, worship experience, and evangelistic approach with an emphasis on philosophy and theology of innovation and change.
Crosswalk invites you to take part in this two day conference. Whether you are part of the Crosswalk Ecosphere from one of our campuses or Lovewell groups, or if you are just interested in creating momentum in your local ministry context, we would love for you to spend this time with us learning, worshiping, sharing, and thinking about how you can experience the Kingdom Momentum that God has for you and your local congregation or group.
*SAME-DAY REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE AT THE REGISTRATION BOOTH*
