One MOVE Experience. Two unique ways to join.

MOVE Conference is designed for anyone who is passionate about sharing the gospel locally, nationally and internationally. Pastors, church staff, students and any leader who desires to learn, grow and develop in the area of missions will benefit from MOVE.

Breakout Sessions

Breakout 1 & 2: Mission on Our Doorsteps: Thinking Biblically about Refugees and Immigration

Matthew Soerens

While many Americans think of issues of refugees and immigration primarily as political, economic or social issues, for the church, we must first and foremost view these issues through the lens of Scripture and recognize the missional opportunity that God created through the movement of people across borders. In this workshop, author and World Relief staffer Matthew Soerens will explore key biblical principles that can guide our response to immigrants, address common questions and concerns related to immigration issues, and explore ways that local churches and individuals can engage these issues in ways guided by God’s Word.

Breakout 1 & 3: Make Better Ministry Decisions

Walter Shaffer

Reality is our friend, and when we know the reality we can make better ministry decisions. 

Breakout 1 & 3: The CARE for AIDS Story

Cornel Onyango & Duncan Kimani

"Cornel Onyango Nyawera is a pastor, husband, and father. He serves as a Country Director for CARE for AIDS, a nonprofit he co-founded in 2007. Cornel grew up in Western Kenya near Lake Victoria where his passion for justice and inclusivity led him to engage in the HIV crisis that was destroying his community.   

Duncan Kimani Kamau grew up on a coffee farm in Central Kenya. As the son of a pastor, Duncan grew up with a heart for compassion and pastoral care, which eventually led him to engage in the AIDS crisis by activating local churches to care for the most marginalized members of their communities. Duncan serves as a Co-Founder and Country Director of CARE for AIDS in Nairobi, Kenya. 

In this breakout session, Duncan and Cornel will share the story of their unlikely friendship and teach us to how to live out the Christian call of centering our lives in the margins of society. "

Breakout 1: Prideful and Powerless: The Desperate Need for Prayer and Fasting in the Church for the Purpose of God in the World

David Platt

John 12:24-26; We talk a lot at conferences, we preach a lot in our churches, and our lives and ministries are filled with doing so many different things. But why don’t we pray more? And what might happen if we did?

Breakout 1: Equipping the Church to Engage Diaspora Peoples

Daniel & Catherine

Have a heart to reach Afghan Refugees, Muslims, Buddhist/Animists, Hindus, or Spanish speakers? Many Jesus followers have a heart to reach the unreached peoples who are right here in the U.S. but just don’t know where to start. Come hear stories from our teams of what God is doing among these groups locally and learn about opportunities to get involved with future NoPlaceLeft disciple-making trainings that are focused on reaching these segments of our cities!

Breakout 1: Mobilizing Teenagers to Be on Mission

Chris Trent

When a teenager goes on a mission trip, there is the potential for a life-changing experience that can last a lifetime. In this breakout we will take a comprehensive look at how to plan, prepare, and lead a mission trip for students. 

Breakout 2: Building Environments for Partnerships and Collaboration: The Power, The Path, The Places, and The Potential of Collaboration

Christian Mungai

This session discusses ways to collaborate in healthy partnerships with others for maximum global engagement with minimum harm. 

Breakout 2: Growing Healthy Church Partnerships Panel

Edwin Pacheco , Larry Mayberry , Nathan Sloan & Trey Bailey

This panel will help you learn from church planters and mission agencies who regularly partner with churches to help accomplish their mission. Come hear from their experience about the best ways to work with, send mission teams to, and encourage those with whom you partner. 

Breakout 2: Playbook for Being a Global Catalyst

Lori McDaniel

God's global mission is the identity of the church, informs every strategic activity in the church, and is the responsibility of every disciple in the church. Leaders who know how to activate a global discipleship vision will cultivate a Great Commission ethos among those they lead.

Breakout 2: Reaching the Next Generation

Luke LeFevre

This session will cover keys to mobilizing and reaching the next generation along with testimonies of how God is currently working in and amongst Gen Z.

Breakout 2: Why We are Changing our Mission Strategy

Bryan Hanson & Clay Smith

Every gospel-driven church desires to reach people with the good news of Jesus Christ, and most of us also deeply desire to be a part of seeing all nations reached with the gospel. However, as well intentioned as we may be, as time goes on, cultures change, pandemics come and go, and often the global impact of our churches tends to wane. The past two years have changed so much around us, including our missions strategy. But what if the answer to increasing our missions effectiveness going forward actually had little to do with our missions strategy?

Breakout 3: A Travel Agent’s Inside Tips for Navigating Travel in a COVID-19 World

Alisa Glover

COVID-19 has presented challenges for travel that we have never had before. What do I need to do? Where do I go to research? Who do I trust for correct information? Should we get travel insurance? Learn about the latest resources so that teams can travel internationally again.

Breakout 3: NAME: Moving the Edges Together

Luke Taylor

Come learn from two ministry leaders in the North Africa/Middle East region as they share their experiences. You will learn about the culture, the people, and what makes the NAME region so unique. You’ll also learn ways you can partner with ministries working in the region.

Breakout 3: Reaching the Ends of the Earth Next Door

David Garrison

Acts 17:26-27; God has brought the ends of the earth, the world’s least-reached peoples, to a neighborhood near you. How should we respond? Dr. Garrison will provide insights into how these immigrant communities can and are being reached in America today. Learn how you can be a part of fulfilling the Great Commission where you live!

Breakout 3: The Path to Multiplying Everyone and Everything to go Everywhere

Keith Wieser

Rapidly changing church and culture environments continue to force leaders to rethink the way they equip and empower people towards multiplication. However, because of the practical realities of shifting paradigms, both creating culture and scaling systems can be complex. Lessons learned reaching the next generation reveal how to intentionally make shifts that can turn sending churches into multiplying churches.

Online Breakout 1: Prideful and Powerless: The Desperate Need for Prayer and Fasting in the Church for the Purpose of God in the World
