We are so excited to be gathering together again this summer. We're going to be in Montréal, and we'll be hosting this event over two exciting venues. Evangel Church will be our "main" gathering spot. Walking distance from that space is the beautiful St. Jaxs church, where many of our breakouts will be taking place, along with curated creative works space that will be on display. We have a number of guests who will be joining us to help shape our time together.
