We come together every year to learn from each other in the context of our relationships.

From philanthropy to impact investing, from spiritual discernment to practical tips, from urgent needs at home to generational impact around the world, we seek Biblical wisdom in the expression of our Christian stewardship.

We invite a stellar group of doers and thinkers to help us understand new ideas and current events; place current events in historical context; examine the Scriptures and hold complex ideas in tension. Our guests come to share their expertise from a diversity of fields: entrepreneurs and investors, disrupters and institutionalists, theologians and pastors, artists and craftsmen, policymakers and pundits.
