The Churches of God Triennial Conference convenes every 3 years to conduct the official business of the General Conference, but is also designed as a time of fellowship and inspiration for our shared future.
Keynote Speaker Tod Bolsinger is Vice President and Chief of Leadership Formation at Fuller Theological Seminary. In his book, Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory, he recounts the quest of explorers Lewis and Clark to find a waterway to the Pacific Ocean, but instead they found themselves facing the Rocky Mountains. Tod brings decades of expertise in guiding churches through uncharted territory to help you re-imagine what effective leadership looks like in our rapidly changing world.
