2018 Perkins Fall Convocation

Do you want to revitalize your congregation?

Do you want to attract new church seekers?

Then join us on November 12-13, for a two-day conference on social justice, worship and creating a culture of connection.


According to a recent United Methodist Church study, the top driver for continued church attendance is genuine community. And one of the top passions of church seekers is social justice.

With fabulous speakers, inspiring worship experiences, and an array of terrific workshops, you’ll come away from JustWorship with practical strategies and great new ideas for worship that resonate with what people want today.

What can you expect at JustWorship? Experience 10 hours of inspiration and fellowship. Meet, engage and learn from 2 speakers dedicated to social justice and reconciliation. Explore prayer, hospitality, worship design and more fresh ideas from our 8 workshops. Re-imagine what music can bring to worship with our 6 designers and musicians from Oak Worship Strategies. Finally, open your heart, mind and senses to experience 5 worship spaces and the unique emotions and perspectives each one imparts.
