How do we shepherd the flock in the search for economically healthy and socially just urban communities? What is the role of the local church in sustainable human development? Where do we find guidance for those facing unemployment and neighborhood displacement? Join us to explore how moral and economic clarity give direction in our mission to be true disciples, fostering effective charity, empowering our congregations and creating a context for urban flourishing.
City FAVS conference participants will envision a new framework for examining complex problems facing today’s city, built upon a foundation of theological and economic clarity. Participants will network with other catalysts in their community, ground discussion in continued emphasis on real world applications of Biblical principles, and develop leadership capacity through the resources offered for each session.
Conference attendance is by application only. This conference is ideal for urban pastors, lay leaders, and those working in urban communities.
Conference fees, meals, and lodging will be covered for accepted applicants. Travel scholarships are available.
