The live workshop will focus on application and group discussion.Peer Learning
Do you have an idea to share at The Pursuit? Sign up to speak at a Peer Learning session! This session type is designed for conference attendees to pick up the mic and share an idea, a story, or a strategy from their ministry experience. Four speakers will be chosen for each session. Each speaker will have 12 minutes to present. You can apply to present after you have registered for the conference.Knowledge Pods
Do you feel more comfortable in a small group? Knowledge Pods allow you to gather together with a small group of attendees to have an informal discussion with one of our content experts. Ask questions, share ideas, and challenge your assumptions! Be sure to sign up soon—these sessions are limited to 14 people.Rapid Fire
Let's be honest. Do you get bored easily? Are you constantly flipping through channels when you watch TV? Then Rapid Fire sessions may be for you! This session type switches speakers three times, offering three different insights based around a common theme. Hearing from a variety of experts is sure to keep you engaged.Storytelling
Who doesn't love a good story? Our storytellers will share personal experiences that shaped their leadership and changed their perspective. You won't want to miss the opportunity to challenge your faith and your own leadership. Be sure to sign up soon—these sessions are limited to 25 people.Jam Sessions
Jam Sessions are held at the end of each day and organized by role (e.g., Board Members, CEOs, Fundraisers). Join others in your field to share the best thing you learned during the day from any keynote or learning session. A facilitator will help you to develop a few key themes, and you can discuss how you might implement the new ideas in your ministry. Jam sessions are a great way to re-cap, de-brief, and swap notes with your peers.
