mission on our doorsteps

At the beginning of our two year planning process for the 2012 Mission on Our Doorsteps Conference and the 2013 Chicago Summit, we spent time listening to God and to leaders around Chicago from many different denominations and people groups to discover what 2-4 major initiatives we could embrace that would make the most long-term difference in the Kingdom. Through that listening and discernment journey we are focused on four major areas, two focused on unity and two focused on mission.

1)     Under One Roof

2)     Generational Issues Among Immigrant Churches

3)     Human Trafficking 

4)     Immigration

The importance and urgency for these issues to be addressed stretches across immigrant and non-immigrant communities, regardless of denomination or geographic context.

With sustained attention over the course of 2-4 years, we believe that whatever we’re able to do collaboratively around these four challenges will result in a significant impact in Chicagoland.


Towards these ends, Summit plenaries  and “Leadership Labs” will be dedicated to these topics.
