Compassion Conference is designed for anyone interested in collaborative learning and dreaming about how the church can better practice compassion and create change in a local context—church and regional leaders, compassionate ministry leaders and practitioners, Christian nonprofit leaders and practitioners, pastors, scholars, theologians, and students. The conference is designed for people who are just starting to explore the church's calling to compassion as well as those who have been living in the margins for decades. There is always room to go deeper.
