Can we work together to build communities where everyone thrives?

Following on last year’s successful conference on “Bridging the Urban-Rural Divide”, this year’s conference will focus on the role churches can play in the economic revitalization of their communities.

We’ll convene a unique mix of leaders from business, labor, government, non-profits and religious organizations from rural and urban communities across New York state for an honest conversation about the challenges we’re facing and the strategies that are working.

We’ll explore real-life examples of faith communities who have led the way on community revitalization—and we’ll learn from their mistakes and their victories. Participants will leave inspired and equipped to become a catalyst for revitalization in their own towns and cities.

Our highly participatory format will give each participant a chance to share their experience and learn from others.

Full-conference registration cost is $199.00 per person and can be purchased below.

This includes the registration fees and the following meals/receptions:

-A wine & cheese reception on Tuesday night
