The Regenerative Economy: The Next Big Thing

October 20-22

Location: southern sector of Dallas; TBD

Registration opens July 25th

At bigBANG! 2022, leaders in philanthropy, business, and government will explore what many are calling the next big thing in equitable access to resources, The Regenerative Economy. We will explore the eight principles of The Regenerative Economy, and what the future of business and community looks like based on regeneration, not extraction. Historically, our economic system has been one based on individualism and exploitation. Under this system, the production of goods and services comes at the cost of environmental degradation, wealth is defined by profits, and community, culture, and history take a backseat to growth and expansion. During bigBANG! 2022, speakers and panelists will explore how The Regenerative Economy can bolster our economic system to one which works for everyone.

Build Up The Highway

Oct. 27-29

Location: Village Church in Beaverton, Oregon

Register here

Registration is now OPEN for the 2022 Roundtable of the Refugee Highway Partnership - North America: Build Up The Highway. Sign up now to get the Early Bird Rate for this international event (ends August 15th).

Worldwide conflicts have forced more than 100 million persons to flee their homes. While more and more forcibly-displaced people seek safety, the COVID-19 pandemic, polarized politics, and the intentional dismantling of refugee and asylum protections have left the Refugee Highway in disrepair. Those who seek safety in North America and those who walk with them bear the emotional and spiritual weight of the past several years’ challenges. Where is hope?

The Christian narrative reminds us how God faithfully makes a way and journeys with the sojourner. Join us at the 2022 RHP North America Roundtable, where we will take up the Scriptural call to: Build Up the Highway.

Over this three-day, in-person gathering, we will invite participants into each of the five movements in Isaiah 62:10. Plenary sessions and table talks will provide opportunities for inspiration and equipping. In prayer and worship, we’ll be stretched beyond our comfort zone and strengthened in the hope of Christ. Through interactive sessions and networking, you can find companions for the journey and create space to welcome more.

In addition to this year's in-person event, Mosaix is partnering with Threaded and the hosts of the colored commentary podcast, Markus Lloyd and Antwuan Malone, to provide a full virtual, concurrent conference experience to those of you that cannot otherwise join us in Dallas.

To be clear, this is not going to be another run-of-the-mill live stream. We want to bring that same conference energy to your living room or office! Toward that end, we've worked hard to create an interactive experience that will provide you the following: 

 

  • Access to all plenary speakers and talks from the main stage

  • Exclusive interviews w/conference speakers and behind-the-scene looks

  • Join in-person attendees for 4 of 12 workshop options over the course of 2 days

  • Network live with other ministries and/or join group discussions

  • Connect in real time to authors, conference sponsors, and others

  • Receive a virtual SWAG BAG full of free resources and tools for your ministry... and a few more surprises!
