Ecclesia National Gathering 2022

The Way of Jesus

For a World in Upheaval

January 18-20, 2022

The events of the last few years have challenged many of the prevailing assumptions and practices of our daily lives. In turn, ministry leaders have transitioned, pivoted, and innovated in order to engage the rapid transformations that are taking place among us.

In many ways, the world at the dawn of 2022 will be remarkably different from the world at the beginning of 2020. We know that we are in an epoch of change. Yet, with all that is taking place around us, as missional leaders it is increasingly vital that we have a life and a people that is deeply formed by the way of Jesus. For it is the way of Jesus that the world most needs.


During the 2022 Ecclesia Gathering, we will engage with Pastor Rich Villodas of New Life Fellowship in New York City around 6 transformative values that root us in the way of Christ for the times we live.

 In addition, Ecclesia leaders from across the country will share their experience in pastoring during this tumultuous season and what they anticipate for mission-shaped ministry in the days ahead.
