Looking for ways to improve your leadership, grow your church, engage your members and delve deeper into your faith?

Church conferences provide all of this and more. Sometimes it’s beneficial to step outside of your own church and learn from others.

While there are ample opportunities for growth, make sure you book at least one of these eight church conferences in 2018.

1. Q Conference

The Q Conference focuses on 30 concise talks lasting 9 to 18 minutes. It’s the perfect conference for bettering understanding American cultures and issues affecting your members every day. The conference gathers leaders from around the country for debate, discussion and thought-provoking talks. The three-day conference lasts from April 11-13 in 2018 in Nashville, TN.


SYNERGIZE 2018 is coming soon. In fact, the conference is limited to just 800 attendees and takes place in Orlando, FL from January 23-25. This conference brings together ministry leaders from around the globe. You’ll learn from 35 different presenters and network with leaders from over 60 nations. You also gain access to the Billion Soul Library, which is full of valuable resources for improving your ministry.

3. Exponential Conference

Exponential is one of the biggest church conferences in 2018. The four-day event lasts from February 26 – March 1 and takes place in Orlando, FL. There are also regional conferences in September in Washington, DC and October in Los Angeles, CA. These smaller conferences don’t feature the breakout sessions.

This conference is designed for church planters and features over 175 speakers and 200 workshops. It’s ideal for motivating you and helping you follow God’s calling when it comes to church planting. You also get valuable resources to continue guiding you after the conference ends.

4. C3 Conference

The C3 Conference is one of the best church conferences for learning from fellow leaders and taking a more creative approach to ministry. 2018’s conference is being held in Dallas, TX from February 14-15. Thousands of leaders gather to discuss ministry, renew their passion and learn how to build a culture of growth and faith.

One of the best parts is you’re able to live stream the event. Even if you can’t attend in person, you can still benefit from all the live sessions. While you won’t be able to network, you’ll still learn incredible strategies and feel motivated and inspired.

5. Catalyst

Catalyst is all about building leadership skills by learning from some of the top leaders in ministry. It’s one of the top church conferences for learning how to grow a church, stay strong in the face of adversity, build stronger teams and much more. One good thing is this conference happens twice a year, so there’s no reason not to make it to at least one.

In 2018, Catalyst will be held in Orange County, CA from April 12-13. A second event is scheduled for October 4-5 in Atlanta, GA.

6. Global Leadership Summit

The Global Leadership Summit is two days filled with leadership talks, inspiration and training that can be used to better your church today. While it’s held at the Willow Creek Campus near Chicago, it’s telecast live to over 500 locations throughout the country. Make plans to visit a host site or host it at your own location from August 9-10.

It’s the perfect conference to attend if travel costs aren’t in your church’s budget. With so many locations, you’ll easily find one nearby. It’s a conference you don’t want to miss, especially if you’re ready for new leadership strategies.

7. Leadercast Live

Leadership Live is unique among church conferences. It’s the biggest one-day event and is broadcast live at over 700 locations worldwide. The event is hosted in Atlanta, GA, but it’s easy to find a local host site. Learn from numerous church leaders in one amazing faith-filled day. While it’s an incredible experience to attend in person, you won’t miss out on the benefits by attending via the live broadcast. This year’s event takes place on May 4th.

8. The Outcomes Conference

The Outcomes Conference connects church leaders to help them with personal and spiritual growth. With full-day intensive seminars, workshops and special forums throughout the event, leaders walk away with the knowledge and inspiration they need to lead and engage their church families. The three-day event lasts from April 17-19 and is held in Dallas, TX.

Ready to become a better church leader in 2018? Make sure you book your seat at one of these conferences today. If you’re hosting a streaming event, ensure you advertise it on your church website and social media.
