What is a Jesus-centred gospel, and how does it apply to our cultural moment?

May 5 – 6, 2022
Oakville, Ontario, Canada + Online

UNITE 22 is a purposeful global gathering hosted by Jesus Collective, designed to forge unity in our polarized moment and equip us with fresh perspective and relevant tools through a focused exploration of what it means to centre the gospel on Jesus. 

We love church conferences, but this isn’t one…

If you’re looking to lay low and take in one way presentations, this probably isn’t the event for you. UNITE 22 is designed to engage us collaboratively in a two day collective journey of understanding and practical application of the Jesus-centred way. 

We’ll stretch our imaginations with much needed clarity and insight into the distinctiveness of the Jesus-centred gospel. We’ll wrestle together with how this ancient-yet-fresh approach applies practically on the ground to the pressing realities of our day and inspires us as we (re)imagine and (re)build church post-COVID. We’ll slow down to share spiritual practices that form us. And we’ll have lots of time to celebrate and hang out together!

Our hope is that you leave more rooted in your identity in Jesus, encouraged and challenged by what it means to be Jesus-centred, equipped with practices and tools for the realities you face in your context, and with some fun memories with new like-minded friends.

# Who is this for?

Stay tuned… We’re shaping a diverse group of teachers, practitioners, and ordinary radicals like you from in and around Jesus Collective to participate at UNITE 2022. We’ll learn through the stories, successes, and failures of churches and ministry leaders across North America and beyond who serve as on-the-ground inspiration for the Jesus-centred movement. We’ll be encouraged by like-minded peers and be challenged to keep our minds and hearts open to different ways of thinking, living, and leading.
