North America Conference 2022

The theme of the 2022 North America Conference is Convictional Faithfulness because what we believe shapes our desires and our actions. Our theology makes us long for Christ’s kingdom and labor to advance it in our communities for God’s glory. Unwavering commitment to our theological beliefs is essential in our mission to plant healthy, multiplying churches.

Registration is open to members at any church, whether Acts 29 affiliated or not.
