T4G Pre-Conference: “Church in Hard Places”

A 9Marks Urban Workshop | | April 12, 2016 | Register

We want this half-day workshop to equip ministry leaders to do three things:

1. Effectively engage the poor with the gospel
2. Build healthy churches in our poorest communities
3. Develop effective strategies for equipping indigenous leaders from within those communities

So, when we say “hard places,” we’re talking about planting, revitalizing, and growing churches that reach the most economically and socially disadvantaged communities.


  • A Christian wondering whether he or she may be able to help take the gospel to a hard place
  • A church leader who wants to mobilize people to take the gospel into a hard place
  • A church planter who is thinking about starting a new church in a poor community

Whoever you are, we hope this workshop encourages you to sacrifice your comfort as you go to minister to the poor on your doorstep or further afield.
