Evolving Faith 2019 — Denver, CO

Magness Arena in the Ritchie Center, University of Denver (map)

A gathering for wanderers, wonderers, and spiritual refugees to help you discover...You are not alone.

Evolving Faith Is for You

  • Are you sorting through your faith, trying to figure out what you believe now?

  • Do you feel as if you are in the wilderness, unable to find your way forward spiritually?

  • Have you had your safe and tidy answers upended by life?

  • Do you feel like you don't belong in your church or tradition anymore?

  • Do you want to better reimagine the role of scripture and theology?

  • Are you searching for answers at the intersection of faith and sexuality? Justice? Scripture? Church?

  • Do you wonder if there is still room for you in the Church?

  • Are you at a loss as to how to act justly and love mercy in this world?

  • Do you want to begin to reimagine, rebuild, and resurrect a faith worth living?

Evolving Faith is a gathering of kindred spirits, an opportunity to learn, wrestle, worship, laugh, and commiserate as we navigate this journey through the wilderness together.

Join Rachel Held Evans, Sarah Bessey, Jeff Chu, and an extraordinary line-up of speakers (to be announced on April 15, 2019) in conversations around everything from the Bible to politics to justice to human dignity and much more.

So come as you are! Doubters and dreamers, parents and singles, pastors and church drop-outs, LGBTQ friends and Bible nerds, post-evangelicals and “happy-clappy” Pentecostals—all are welcome at the Table.

We hope you will leave feeling a little more inspired and a little less alone.
