Introducing "The City" Global Impact Conference 2018 from Colonial Baptist Church on Vimeo.

2018 Global Impact Conference

"The City" -  building the urban church

Save the Dates: April 26th - 29th

In 2050, it is estimated that the world's population will increase to 9.6 billion, and almost 70% of the population will live in urban areas! What does that mean for our church? How does that affect our strategy for disciple-making efforts locally and globally? 

The conference will focus on understanding the growth of global cities, the impact of that growth on disciple-making, strategic cities for our church, social justice issues, along with various other topics relating to our changing world.

We will hear from a variety of speakers who serve as global workers in different areas of the world.



Conference will include:

  • Breakout sessions, highlighting strategic cities of the world
  • Special sessions for expats and would-be expats as pre-conference sessions (in partnership with Apex Expats)
  • Teaching grounded in Scripture
  • Helpful resources
  • Strategic networking opportunities


Opportunities for all ages to participate. Great Urban Adventure for K-5th will be Saturday, April 28th!

Registration opens March 25th.
