Who should attend the SPARK Conference?

SPARK Conference is a gathering for local church leaders passionate about making disciples who make disciples. We encourage pastors, planters, staff members and key lay leaders to attend. We've intentionally structured the conference to help teams pray, process and plan together toward the launch of a disciple-making movement in their community.
