Ashes To Beauty

We are excited to announce Sojourn Network's National Conference, in partnership with Access Ventures, in Louisville, KY at Sojourn Community Church's Midtown Campus on November 3-5, 2014

Our main speakers will be Scotty Smith, Randy Nabors, Daniel Montgomery, Carl Ellis Jr., Dave Harvey, Kevin Cosby, and Michael Crawford. In addition to these main session speakers, the conference will include eight breakout "tracks" with over twenty-five teachers designed to supplement the main teaching times with ministry-specific training around the conference title theme - "From Ashes to Beauty", taken from Isaiah 61. 

This conference will explore God’s desire to turn the lifeless ashes of our lives into beautiful life through renewal driven mission in people, communities, local churches, and the nations. 

In Jesus we see the mission of God modeled in His words and in His actions and Jesus calls us to carry on His mission in that same holistic manner. But Jesus not only gives us a model for mission in Himself, Jesus gives us His presence and power for mission. In this life, the beauty can often seem like a sliver compared to the ashes of the broken lives, families, and communities around us.

God’s desire, though, is that renewal of the ashes inside our hearts drives external mission as the presence and power of God gives transformed people the privilege of working toward holistic solutions to the complex issues within our churches communities. Therefore, we invite you to join us as at this year’s national conference to learn from leading pastors, teachers, and theologians about the importance of proclaiming the gospel and living on mission through mercy and justice.
