Invitation from Annual Event Co-chairs

“See I am sending you out,” Jesus boldly announces to seventy of his disciples in the Gospel of Luke.  Likewise, this January, you are invited to Little Rock, Arkansas, to escape the cramped boxes of conventional church programs and to explore “discipleship through retreat, mission, and justice ministries.”

Be inspired through worship, plenaries, and creative arts with:

  • Lisa Sharon Harper – Preacher & Plenary Speaker
  • Theresa Cho – Preacher & Plenary Speaker
  • David LaMotte and Zach Light-Wells – Worship Leaders
  • A Sanctified Art – Artists in Residence

Be empowered to try new “outside the box” ministry ideas with:

  • Over 70 workshops focused on retreat leadership, mission, creative arts, faith formation for all ages, social justice, recreation, Bible study, church transition, theology, a PYWA track and much more! 

Be energized through the warm hospitality and innovative sites in Little Rock:

  •  Heifer International Headquarters
  • Clinton Presidential Library & School of Public Service
  • Little Rock Central High School National Historical Site
  • Riverfront Market & Arkansas River Trail

This coming January 29 – February 1, join us in Little Rock for an “outside the box” APCE Annual Event!  Bring your ideas, questions, imagination and passion as we discover together how God is sending us out to make disciples through retreat, mission, and justice ministries.
