More than anything, Christians want to see other people come to Christ. So why do most of us find it so difficult to join in making that happen?
The truth is, God is the One who brings people to Himself. But as He invites you and me to join Him in that process, we can experience one of life’s greatest joys! It doesn’t have to be difficult because He wants to use us just the way He made us—bringing others closer to Christ, one step at a time!
Come join other Christ-followers from local churches at a one-day Organic Outreach for Ordinary People Conference. Together, we’ll join hearts and minds for a day of inspiration, fun, collaboration and practical insights.
Deep dive into Organic Outreach workshops that will equip you to launch your church on a journey of transformation around evangelism initiatives.

This is a deep dive into Organic Outreach for Churches with workshop time built into the schedule. Participants will leave with an action plan for launching a journey of transformation of their church or denomination. This whole event will equip one or two leaders from your organization to take your congregation/movement through the Organic Outreach process. This learning will lead to a certification of your leader(s) as Organic Outreach trained.
Registration includes three full years of resources for you to use with your church or ministry leadership team. We believe this training will be a great opportunity for you to develop a customized outreach plan for your church or ministry and also develop your leaders in fresh new ways.
Here is what is included:
The cost for this training is $299 per person. It is ideal to have two leaders come from your church or movement: the Lead Pastor and the person who will be leading outreach for the coming three years (Outreach Influence Team Leader).
