Summit 2020

 

Jeff Christopherson 

We are excited to have Jeff share this year, author of several books and co-executive director of Send Institute, “a think tank for evangelism and church planting in North America”.

Jeff is a relentless advocate for centering on the Kingdom over the church, yet dedicated to planting churches. As his latest book title puts it, we need to put kingdom first and start churches that shape movements. We will hear a fresh message for our time.

Jeff counts as his heroes: Henry Blackaby and Jack Conner.  He feels privileged to have had them as his mentors growing up in Northern Saskatchewan.
