God made the 2008 International Leadership Conference (ILC) for the International Churches of Christ a huge step forward in our passion to love God and our mission to serve people by making disciples of all nations.
The Denver Church invites leaders from around the world to the 2009 ILC at the foot of the Rocky Mountains September 3-7, 2009. This is by far the earlest the conference has been announced so that churches and leaders can plan their budgets, travel, etc.
Welcome to Denver!
Leaders around the world are called upon to wear many hats. None of them is more important and fundamental to shepherding God’s people than Jesus’ call to love AS I HAVE LOVED YOU. This phrase embodies the heart and foundation of Christ centered leadership and it is what draws us together for the 2009 International Leadership Conference! Please join us in Denver, September 3-7, 2009, as more than 1,000 brothers and sisters will gather together for a kingdom-wide “family reunion” dedicated to strengthening and sharpening your leadership gifts and abilities.
Denver, Colorado rests at the foot of the southern Rocky Mountains which boast spectacular peaks, alpine lakes, and wide valleys. You can look west to the Rocky Mountain’s broadest and highest region, extending from central New Mexico, through Colorado, to the Great Divide Basin in southern Wyoming. These include the chain’s loftiest point, Mount Elbert, reaching to 14,433 ft. in central Colorado, and Pikes Peak whose 14,110 ft. peak can easily be seen from Denver. With 300 days of sunshine and the stunning Rocky Mountains in its backyard, Denver offers an exciting outdoor, urban adventure that awakens the senses.
It is in the shadow of these surroundings that God established the Denver Church of Christ in May of 1986. Some of the many joys for this congregation over the last 22 years have been the countless retreats, get-a-ways, and conferences we have been blessed to host. The members of our church family, along with those in Fort Collins and Colorado Springs, are honored to welcome spiritual heroes and friends from around the world to the ILC-Denver 2009.
