The Beautiful Gospel Conference
May 11-14, 2022

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.

Come.

We are inviting people from around the world to come together.
Why would you say yes to this invitation?

  • You are hungry for a sacred space where you can be renewed through deep encounters with Jesus Christ.
  • You long to rediscover how profoundly beautiful, deep and transformative this Gospel really is.
  • You will learn from renowned speakers who have made passion for Jesus Christ and His Gospel the focus of their teaching and their lives.
  • From the overflow of a renewed heart, you want to both live and communicate this beautiful Gospel with the world around you, with more clarity and compassion than ever before.
  • You want to experience the mutual encouragement of being with men and women who, like you, are hungry for more in their walk with the Lord.

What are we desiring for you when you leave this gathering?

You will experience a profound spiritual renewal

You will have a greater understanding of just how big and beautiful the Gospel really is

You will share Christ, through both your life and words, with a greater sense of joy, freedom and purpose than ever before

Your life in prayer will be deeper than ever before

You will have made new and long-lasting friendships
