Who is this event for?

Seed to Oaks exists to mobilize the local church to the front lines of social change. They work with local churches, non-profits, government agencies and businesses to pioneer efforts that address systemic injustice. If you're someone who imagines a world where every local church is restoring its community, this event is for you. Join us as we seek to help local churches understand their own neighborhoods and develop strategies that accelerate their ability to disciple the poor out of poverty.
