hank you for your interest in HarvestNet's Annual NEO Summit. 

Our aim for this year's event is to gather God's people who are called to serve vocationally in both the workplace and the churchplace, and who recognize the critical nature of the times in which we live, and realize that God is at work in the midst of it. 

The theme of this year's Summit is on The Jesus Blueprint:Thriving Amidst a Culture in Crises. These are the days in which we need God moving in our lives to "Connect Sunday to Monday," empowering us - just as He did for the believers in Acts 4:29 - to speak God's Word with boldness, and to confirm it with miracles, signs and wonders - and then to mentor and coach others to do the same.  For, "the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power" (I Cor.4:20_NIV).

The Big Idea is for God's people to lean into the John 17 prayer of Jesus to be unified in the work of seeing God's Kingdom come on earth as in heaven.  This unity is not an end-goal, but a divine strategy to bring about the fulfillment of the Great Commission in our spiritual neighborhood of NE Ohio. 

We understand that the citywide (cap-C) Church is a vehicle to do this, and it is imperative therefore to envision, engage and equip Kingdom-minded believers serving vocationally in both the church-place and the work-place in collaborative ministry in today's post-modern millieu. 

On behalf of the HarvestNet Teams, please plan to join us.
