PERFECTING THE SAINTS & EQUIPPING THE BODY OF CHRIST

Refreshing Summit is an annual church and leaders conference hosted by COGMC & Konnect the Kingdom Alliance. This year's conference, UNLEASHING THE GLORY, inspired by Zechariah 2:5 promises a transformative experience, fostering a powerful release of divine glory within our midst. This 4 day experience is a divine calling to shatter barriers while receiving transformative praise, honor and recognition from God that will change your life, business, and ministry forever.

UNLEASH

/ˌənˈlēSH/ (verb) - a strong or violent force to be released or to become unrestrained; to begin something powerful that once begun cannot be controlled [much like a wildfire; turning the world upside down- Acts]

THEME

UNLEASHING THE GLORY resonnates as we enter our second FIRE YEAR encounter. Zech. 2:5 (ESV) says, “For I will be to her (Jerusalem) a wall of fire round about, says the Lord, and I will be the glory within her.” As we consider “the glory” God is unleashing upon our ministry, we deem this time of REFRESHING as not just an expression of glory within, but

an explosion of glory “through” us as we impact our world for Jesus.

 

To unleash means “to begin something powerful that once begun cannot be controlled [much like a wildfire].” It’s like an Acts 17:6 transformation where we will become known in our region as those who by the GLORY of God, are turning the world upside down!

WORKSHOPS

Healthy churches grow at a rate of 5-12% each year. Our ministry grew over 51% in less than 3 years, breaking the barriers & defying trends of declining church growth.

 

Join us to learn from featured presenters about thriving church cultures, creative community outreach, and becoming a church champion.

 

We’ll also highlight multigenerational ministry and include a panel discussion with Gen Z youth to improve outreach to youth and young adults.

 

 

These sessions are designed for every pastor, administrator, youth leader, and church member.

YOUTH

Join us for an unforgettable youth experience designed to inspire, engage, and empower. From dynamic worship sessions to fun-filled activities, our youth schedule is packed with opportunities for spiritual growth and community building.

 

Designed for youth of all ages, this journey will deepen their faith, strengthen their connections, and leave them inspired to carry the glory into their communities. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to be part of a transformative youth experience!
