Building a culture of generosity is not primarily a “budget enhancement” program to get more money for the church.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this conference for?

If you’re here, it’s probably for you. We believe leadership matters like nothing else – especially leadership within The Church. This conference is for anyone who feels a “weight” of responsibility at a local church or ministry. That could be pastors, church planters, elders, volunteer leaders, etc. Whether you teach every Sunday, lead in student ministry, or help with small groups, you will have the opportunity to learn from others who lead in a similar role.

At One Community Church, everyone on staff – regardless of position – is expected to act like an owner and a leader. A key goal is that the principles we discuss are relevant to every position within a church staff, including those outside traditional “ministry” roles, like IT, operations, HR, media, communications, administration, etc. Our entire staff will also be available during the conference to connect with you and answer questions.

Wondering if your church is too small or too big to get something out of the Climb Conference? We believe there are no such things as “big” or “little” works of God. So, whether your church attendance is 50 or 50,000, our prayer is that you will become a better leader in it because of our time together.

The 2023 conference runs three days from Thursday, January 26 through Saturday, January 28.
