ABOUT

The Intersection Conference is a missional greenhouse for Anglican leaders in The Telos Collective. Each year, this group of leaders will exchange ideas, share strategies for disciple-making in a post-Christian North America, and explore new ways of re-missioning the Church. The conference will also birth Learning Communities, local vehicles for continuing the conversation about mission in contemporary culture.

Each Intersection Conference will explore a core element of mission, and discuss the other elements in relation to it.

  • 2017: Gospel
  • 2018: Culture
  • 2019: Missional Ecclesiology
  • 2020: Missional Leadership
  • 2021: God’s Empowering Presence

Theme: Engaging Culture: An Inter-Disciplinary Conversation

7 Speakers.

7 Diverse Panel Discussions.

3 Collaborative Cohorts.

150 missional minds.

We’re passionate about thinking across boundaries to create something new, so we asked seven speakers to explore key areas of cultural engagement in today’s landscape. After each speaker, a panel of diverse thinkers will engage the concepts, interweaving approaches to Anglican practice and perspective. Attendees will then discuss practical implications in cohort groups.
