What is the 521 Conference?

Jesus told the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25. In this story, the master gives three servants 5 talents, 2 talents and 1 talent, respectively. He never tells them how to leverage what he gave them but still expected them to do something with it. We learn that what we have been given by God is less important to Him than what we do with it.

The 521 Conference is an opportunity for church leaders of all giftedness and ability to learn how to leverage their "talents" to give more people a chance to find and follow Jesus. God loves pastors and churches of all sizes but doesn't want any of us to sit on what he gave us.

5 Main Sessions & 12 Breakout Sessions!
Each breakout speaker has experience helping churches, of less than 100 attenders, 
break through growth barriers. Their focus will be helping churches,
less than 300, connect the Gospel to those farthest from it.
