Rev. Emily Meyer, Ministry Lab Executive Director

What's next in faith formation? Leaders, clergy, and volunteers in ministry with all ages are enthusiastically invited to join the ConNext Summit 2022!

ConNext Summit 2022: In the Ways of Jesus: Gracious Idleness, Scrappy Transformation, Radical Belonging is an opportunity for congregational leaders - clergy and faith formation; volunteer or staff - to process the last few years with comedy improv troupe Danger Boat Productions; strengthen collegial community led by musician Sara Thomsen; rest and renew in the beautiful Christ the King retreat center; and get inspired by ministry innovations created by neighboring communities. Find details and registration here; workshop overviews and bios are here. We look forward to a radical summit with lots of scrappy ideas and gracious renewal.

This ecumencial gathering of progressive leaders offers opportunities to network, share inspiration, and rest.

Plenary time will be fueled by Sara Thompsen's amazing musical leadership and Danger Boat Production's facilitation of Improv Café Conversations. Workshops are diverse and interactive. Plenty of time for rest, contemplative practices, nature, and socializing.
