Across the nation, there are hundreds of conferences delivering top-notch information and inspiration to God’s people.

Today’s Christian conferences are designed to help Christians focus on their area of ministry, provide encouragement, and sharpen one’s skills tools for ministry. Conferences aren’t just for pastors or church leaders, either. There are Christian conferences for moms, dads, women, men, Sunday School teachers, families, new Christians, old Christians, and medium Christians. Basically, there’s a Christian conference for anyone who is interested in deepening their relationship with Christ.

Top Christian Conferences for 2019 in the U.S.

Amplify Conference

Look around you. Look around the world. So many needs, so many wounds and pains and divisions. So.much.brokenness. God made flesh, God dwelt among us. That’s what our world needs. An unsaturated, uncomplicated reconciling gospel that proclaims one thing: the healing work of the cross that has crossed two thousand years to get to us. For some, sharing the gospel is a dim memory. For others, it’s an archaic command. For others, it’s the call of a few. For too many, it’s hard, filled with fear, uncertainty, and a lack of feeling prepared. What all of these views lack is the rock-solid truth that God has called all of us, God will equip us, and God will do the work. When we take our eyes off ourselves, God is lifted high for all to see. Amplify 2019 will allow us to strip out the complexities of gospel witness and reveal the simplicity of the gospel that overcomes all barriers. Christ crucified. Christ lifted high. Our world made new. What does the simple, stripped gospel message look like to you? And how are you showing & sharing it with a world in desperate need of it?

Conference Details


One of the most underserved segments of a church staff is the worship department. We are not talking specifically about one organization, what we are talking about is the community of Worship Pastors and staff. Notice we use the word “Pastors” because the Worship Pastor and his staff are responsible for creating an environment that is conducive for people to connect with the body of Christ. It is biblically commanded that the community come together and worship.

This is not a songwriter symposium or a creative conference. This is about discipleship, why Worship Pastors and teams do what they do, and how they connect each and every day.

Power & Love Schools

It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to “come out of the closet!” We have the best-kept secret of signs, wonders and miracles but until recently, they have been accessible only to those who might venture into one of our meetings!

We won’t be “arguing people into the kingdom” anymore…we will be demonstrating the love of God through revelation and power!

The plan is to hold Schools of Power & Love in cities across the US designed to empower you in the gifts of prophecy and healing as a lifestyle! These gifted teachers will not only give you a wonderful new understanding of power evangelism but then you will be “activated” as you “do the stuff” of the kingdom!

In His perfect life and death, Jesus brought light back to our fallen race.

Simply Worship

A small church in Massachusetts asked us to come help train their team early in 2012. We decided to open the one-day event to other churches. 125 worship leaders from dozens of churches attended. The response was overwhelming and the need was clear.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran of worship ministry or are new to serving the church in the worship arts arena, we have designed Simply Worship to serve you. For churches who have dedicated staff leading the worship arts area, Simply Worship is a perfect event to equip and encourage your volunteer community.

Teach Them Diligently

The Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention was born out of a recognized need for more events celebrating the focus of Christian Homeschool Families — that is, to disciple their children to glorify God. The organizers of this convention are also officers of Worldwide Tentmakers, a mission agency focused on tentmaking as a missions strategy (as in Acts 18), therefore, missions, discipleship, and parenting are the primary focus of the Teach Them Diligently Convention in addition to the traditional focus on teaching techniques and use of curriculum.

That Church Conference

That Church Conference was founded by Justin Dean, Dave Adamson, Ashley Williams, and Van Baird.

Together for the Gospel

Our fallen world has never been friendly to God’s way and God’s will. For some of us, this ever-present truth has become even clearer in recent years. The academy calls Christian morality bigoted. The courts choose the sexual revolution over religious liberty. Hollywood alters a nation’s moral sympathies from one season to the next. And racial animosity continues to rear its ugly head.

How should we respond?

Together for the Gospel 2018 offers this: the culture may call churches to conform, but God calls us to be Holy. Set apart. Sanctified. Distinct.

Worship Leader Summit

For more than twenty years we have been offering Worship Leader Summits: two powerful days (Monday afternoon until lunch on Wednesday) of worship, prayer, interaction, encouragement and fellowship. Worship leaders from across the nation will be there, but only about 20. We limit this event to the first worship leaders who sign up. This makes for a very intimate atmosphere.

Full-time, part-time or volunteer, it makes no difference. If you’re the primary worship leader for your church, you’re invited. (We do offer a limited number of spots to apprentice worship leaders attending with the primary worship leader.) You don’t want to miss the powerful times of worship, the meals, and the fellowship with like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ. It’s an event that will leave a lasting impression on your life and ministry. Don’t miss it!
