You are invited to join us for a gathering of friends, leaders, and dreamers encountering a rising again…
S C A T T E R E D SAINTS
The saints who have changed the course of Kingdom history were not content with gathering as a body of believers. An encounter with God caused life transformation that stirred the believer to go! Since the coming of the Holy Spirit, saints (all who have been made new in Christ) have been scattered throughout the world, preaching the word wherever they went [Acts 8:4]. Being a disciple is a call to change the course of history by taking his name into every sphere of influence. Your school, your workplace, your neighbourhood, your city, your nation is waiting… wanting… wondering… will you come to them and bring the message of Jesus? This is the moment we walk out of the gathering as the Church, empowered to see cities restored and nations saved. We are called to be SCATTERED SAINTS.
May 9 – 11, 2019

Could our scatterings be greater than our gatherings?

Scattered Saints: The moment the Church answers
the call to live the encounter everyday!
“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went!” Acts 8:4
What is a conference? Maybe not what you think!
Conference: The act of conferring.
Confer: To grant, bestow or give. To converse, exchange ideas, consult together, deliberate and talk over- often in order to take action. From the Latin “con-” (together) and “ferre” (to carry, bear, bring).
The art of conferring is literally about unity! To confer is, “to converse, exchange ideas, consult together, deliberate and talk over – often in order to take action.” A foundational design of Resurgence is our team approach – meeting with others to get the fullest picture of who God is and what His heart is after. We hope you will join us as we translate that culture into a multi-day gathering – a true “conference”!
To honour the true nature of conferring, our Conference seating is organized into small circle groups of 8-10 people to allow for discussion & interaction. During all General Sessions (except Saturday evening), attendees will sit with their assigned circle group. There is a place on your registration to note a preference of someone you’d like to be seated with – we will do our best to accommodate all requests. During workshops and meals, seating is not assigned, so you will have time to connect and engage with other attendees!
