SAT = Sustainability and Transformation

For churches who believe sustainability and missions go together.

What’s SATtalks?   |   What’s Missions 3.0?

Florence Muindi on WHY SATtalks

SATtalks and Missions 3.0 Pre-Conference | Kansas City, October 24-26

We need the stories of pioneers working with new models of church missions as a way to help us picture what could be.  You’ll be inspired and challenged by the speakers as well as the people you get to rub shoulders with over the three days.
