What Others Are Saying “It was great that I could be in my home with people I am on mission with. We could talk about issues that apply to us. The webcast made it so all could take part who wanted to… Not just those who could afford the traveling.” – Verge Webcast Participant “Thank you SO MUCH for making this available for free… As a homeschooling mom to two children, actually having the time & money to attend a conference is rare. But this allowed me to participate and be filled with new ideas, and recharge my spiritual batteries. I also liked the little breaks to take note of what God was asking us to do.” – Verge Webcast Participant “The short presentation format was so effective. The interaction with my colleagues about the impact for our lives and leadership was challenging.” – Verge Webcast Participant “What I’ve sensed is really that God is doing something and we really are on the verge of seeing something happen… And that’s what I loved about the whole idea behind this Conference.” – Francis Chan “Verge is an authentic, humble wave of leaders creating an ethos of meaningful collaboration and necessary strategic convergence for missional initiatives in North America.” – Dave Gibbons “A not-to-be-missed experience for anyone with a passion to see ordinary people transforming society with the good news of the Kingdom.” – Felicity Dale “It was one of the more exciting conferences I had been to for a long time…it had the feel of a summit. At the Verge Conference, the missional church was main-staged and not relegated to second place.” – Alan Hirsch “As God stirs up the church to find new ways of engaging the world, Missional Community has become a constant drum beat by the spirit of God. We now realize we must equip the saints to learn how to engage the culture as missionaries, making the kingdom tangible, and forming churches around the fruit of communities that live incarnationally.” – Hugh Halter [intense_spacer height=”30″ /] 3 EASY STEPS TO GET YOUR FREE WEBCAST 1.
