MARCH 18-19, 2021


The Advance Conference is a two-day conference where staff and volunteer church leaders across the state of Montana gather for leadership training, inspirational teaching, and relational growth. The annual conference is put on by the Advance Network whose mission is to encourage and equip local church leaders with world-class resources and genuine relationships. The Advance Conference is non-denominational and is open to any church or individual who would like to attend. Let’s advance together! 


Rather than limit our gathering to one building, we've expanded the conference to reach all across the state of Montana! What does that mean for you? More meeting locations! You have the option to attend right here in Great Falls at New City or gather with other ministry leaders in Missoula (Revive Church), Billings (Zoe Bible Church), or Belgrade (Christian City Church). Registration is required for all attendees, for all sessions (including general sessions).


As a church volunteer or support ministry leader, you can expect to leave the Advance Conference with new life, new understanding, and a new excitement and love for the local church! Over two days, we'll receive virtual teaching from our guest speaker Karl Vaters, engage in worship, and receive equipping through several unique breakout sessions. Check out the full schedule of events below.
