IMPACT 2019 | FAITH RXD Annual Leadership Conference

Spend four days getting further equipped and encouraged to carry out the transformative work to which God has called us as one unified team around the globe. Collaborate on best practices, participate in team building activities, and hear powerful speakers train on key leadership topics.

“IMPACT” It’s what we believe God is having through our community on the world around us and why it’s the name of our annual leadership conference.   Food, lodging and programming for kids are included, you just need to get your team and their families there – they will thank you!   This year our theme is “Humbly BOLD.” When we’re Humbly Bold, we don’t settle. We’re eager and active. We look for opportunities to draw people in and increase our community. It means we’re:

– Sacrificing our own comfort.

– Letting go of what people think of us.

– Getting messy.

– Setting aside our pride.

– Admitting where we need help.

– Searching for people with a similar heart and drive to serve.

– Creating opportunities for others to come, grow, and become who God designed and purposed them to be.

Feedback from our Previous Events

“One of the most powerful events I’ve ever been a part of. The seminar has changed many things in my personal and faith life and I can’t thank the coaches enough for how well the event was managed.” “I absolutely LOVED my experience!” “ISI was truly what it says – pursuing excellence and being challenged spiritually, physically and mentally.” “Wonderful! I needed to see that it was possible to incorporate two passions and have them work together for the better.” “Thank you! I thought ISI was a great use of my time and money.” “The blend of so many CF and faith-based elements made for a well-rounded weekend, and the staff, their professionalism and desire to invest themselves ultimately made the event a top-notch experience.” “Combining workouts with great sessions on God and Faith just doesn’t get much better.” “It by far exceeded my expectations, and was hands down the best training event I have attended. Coming together, learning from the best, and sharing our love and faith in Christ was very powerful. The event has extremely motivated me to use the gifts God has given me, and I want to invest more time serving God, and less time just living for myself.” “It has greatly impacted me and the love and motivation felt at the event was incredible.” “I felt called to be there and I am definitely praying about my next steps. I honestly feel this is the type of thing God has been preparing me for and this may be where I start by helping with this ministry.”
