This fall, join us on the Fort Worth campus of Southwestern Seminary for a deep dive into what real, hands-on ministry looks like moving forward.

Even before the upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic, widespread disruption, technological development, and social change had left many minsters wondering, “What does ministry look like now?

In a rapidly changing ministry context, the Ministry Now Conference is founded on an unyielding commitment to biblical truth, built by expert practitioners, and designed to encourage and equip pastors and church leaders for leadership in every area of ministry. Wherever God has led you to serve, you can be empowered to live your calling at the Ministry Now Conference.
