Surrender, 23Mar

Since it first ran it in 2004, the mission of SURRENDER has been to invite, inspire and inform an emerging generation to respond to the radical call of Jesus.  The name SURRENDER is an identity that invites a joining with the Jesus who pours out his life in loving the lost and least. As followers of this Jesus today we must be his hands and feet in a hurting world, giving a voice to God’s call to be good news to the poor.

Ideation Conference, 28Mar

Ideas are a dime-a-dozen. What really brings positive change to an individual, organization, or
business is the actual implementation of these ideas. But in order to get there, ideas need
intentional strategy, development of skill-sets, sustainable infrastructure, and a viable network.

Designed as a conference to assist current professionals in businesses and organizations who work towards human good as well as those desiring to enter the field, this conference will allow for in-depth dialogue, access to thought-leaders, and opportunities for intentional networking.

Surrender, 25Mar

SURRENDER is a message (and a conference!) that invites and encourages Jesus followers on a journey from believer to disciple. It’s an invitation to follow Jesus among the poor, to influence the broader climate of church opinion and sow seeds for the future of incarnational mission. SURRENDER does this by focussing primarily on inspiring young adults to engage directly with God through the bible, people facing oppression and fellow disciples on the road. Out of this comes opportunities to join mission groups/organizations, to encourage the broader church to engage the world facing injustice and to financially support communities and individuals already doing these things.
