Courageous Convocation

Courageous Convocation: Strategies for Helping Your Church Adapt To New Realities

UPDATE: On August 27-29, 2020, the Asbury Church Planting Initiative joined with the Church of God in Christ for a collaborative convocation for their New Journey Jurisdiction. We had over 90 registered participants to be active in the Zoom chats and live streamed the event with view counts surpassing 1500! It was an incredible time of sharing and encouragement as to how we are to navigate the post-COVID world ministers find themselves returning to.

Full recordings of the evening sessions will be available soon in our Resource Library.


As the nation of Israel was heading into the uncharted territory of the Promised Land, God encouraged Joshua to “be brave and very courageous.” Just like Joshua, we live in uncertain times where many people are struggling to navigate the challenges of the new realities we live in. In the midst of these radical changes and challenges, we need courageous leaders and churches who are willing to embrace and reimagine the future possibilities of the church. The Courageous Convocation is a virtual conference led by leaders from both the Church of God in Christ and Asbury Theological Seminary that will offer strategies for helping your church thrive in the new realities of the world we live in.
