The Summit is a unique cross-sector gathering of leaders committed to world change through faith and justice. Thought leaders and movement makers from a variety of faith traditions and fields will meet to discuss, strategize, and create opportunities to act on some of the most pressing issues in our nation and world. Instead of a large conference, The Summit convenes an intimate gathering of 350 leaders committed to finding solutions through collaboration.
Each day, we gather to explore the intersections between our areas of work and engage in smaller forums that inspire common action. Throughout The Summit, in-depth training — such as media and campaign development — is available to participants. Receptions and lightly programmed time are also included to help foster relationships.
An overview of the programming, speakers, and attendees of recent Summit years are available here (The Summit 2015), here (The Summit 2016), here (The Summit 2017), and here (The Summit 2018). You can check out video of some of our main stage sessions here.

We are looking for pastors, organizers, advocates, service providers, business leaders, and others who are interested in coming together to address critical issues of justice.
