Verge13: Chicago Regional

Early this week I introduced you to Sam Smith and The Release Initiative, where Sam is the Director. Sam has also architected the upcoming Verge Regional Conference in Chicago, which is a conference primarily for church leaders such as pastoral staff small group leaders, campus staff and outreach organizations.

VERGE Regional: Chicago is not just a conference, it is an experience and a conversation, globally connected and locally focused — for anyone pursuing the mission of God, in community, whatever the context, for the sake of the Gospel.

Join us for 1.5 days of challenging main sessions, music, local-led conversations, networking opportunities and more, Verge Chicago 2013 is here to encourage, build up and renew all kinds of leaders engaged in the mission of God.
