The power of the Gospel lies in its beauty—a beauty that reflects the unwavering, relentless, and unconditional love of the Triune God. It is a Gospel of rescue and reconciliation, of invitation and inclusion. Everyone was made for the Beautiful Gospel.
Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, is at the center of the Gospel. He is the complete revelation of God, full of mystery and wonder. He has always existed beyond all time and space, yet chose to enter our world to bring about the cosmic shift that began––and continues––to change everything.
This is the Gospel that Jesus proclaimed, lived and died for. By His resurrection, the restoration of all of creation began. It is a bigger and deeper Gospel than we have understood.
The Gospel tradition is long and wide; forming the church into a rich mosaic. This conference is a gathering of all who are hungry to pursue the mystery and wonder of Jesus and His all-encompassing gospel.
And so, we invite you to come. Come because you hunger to know more of Jesus Christ. Come because you long to be with others who are on a similar journey. Come because you long to experience the wonder of sacred space and intimacy with Jesus.
What are we desiring for you when you leave this gathering?

Mike Marshall has a great passion to see humanity really experience the love and healing of God through music. Mike first came on the scene with his debut single ‘JESUS’ which boasts of an indelible confidence found in the finished work of Jesus on The Cross. His forthcoming full length album, “Come On In” is set to release this March. Mike is very expectant as he believes every song will point its listeners to the person of Jesus. Mike’s greatest joy is to prepare those he leads for the coming of King Jesus.
Thank You (Live)
