ChurchWorks is a 3-day event for all practitioners of education and spiritual formation in the congregational setting. ChurchWorks creates space for renewal in ministry through practices of creativity, community and worship. To teach the people of God, educators need a place to be equipped, to be inspired, and to be renewed.

ChurchWorks 2019 will be held at Third Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri, February 25-27, 2019 and will focus on "Community Wellbeing." Registration opens October 1, 2018.

ChurchWorks matters because it is imperative that associates have safe, creative, intuitive space to think and grow around issues, questions and realities directly influencing and shaping their ministry and the church.
