Hear the Stories

We need the stories of pioneers working with new models as a way to help us picture what could be.  You’ll be inspired and challenged by each of the presenters as they describe what they are doing to move beyond “helping that hurts.”

You get to rub shoulders with people who share your heart and resolve for church missions and sustainable change.  We believe bringing smart people with a common interest in solving similar problems together accelerates the learning curve for all.


A Little Background

SATtalks uses a TED Talks format to explore the following BIG IDEA…

How can churches and other faith-based organizations pursue their missional goals in ways that lead to self-sustaining solutions where needs are being met without relying on charitable resources and where the person or community has the ability to provide the ongoing means and opportunities to achieve their full potential?

About SATtalks Events

SATtalks is a two-day event with presenters from 6-8 faith-based organizations who are actively applying THE BIG IDEA in their particular ministry.  Presenters give their best 18-minute talk to a live audience about what they’re doing and learning, what’s working and what’s not (admitting failure or setbacks is encouraged!) followed by a time for Q&A. And of course there’s time to just mingle.  Like many events, some of the most important conversations happen outside of the structured schedule.   Each talk is videotaped and then posted on the SATtalks website.

One of the great lessons learned through the TED Talk phenomenon is that you can actually accelerate the learning curve of new ideas by bringing innovative people together to share their best ideas, discoveries, models and lessons with others.  There are a number of individuals, churches and faith-based organizations that are actively working on models that reflect the above BIG IDEA.  They have moved beyond the theoretical and abstract to a point where they are investing resources, executing strategies and working on ways to do good that are truly sustainable and transformative.
