Friday, January 28—Saturday, January 29

Serving is leading.
And leading is worth it because HE is worthy.

Come get energized and equipped to advance the Kingdom of God within our church body and into the world!

The Abundant Life Leadership Summit will unite hundreds of serve team leaders and members from across all Abundant Life campuses in a 2-day weekend event at the Lee’s Summit Campus to support you as you grow as a servant leader.

As a participant you will experience fun (because leadership is fun!) and intentional time of leadership coaching, worship, and learning all about sacrificial leadership.

This summit is open to anyone that serves or is interested in serving at Abundant Life.

*Childcare is available for age three and under (excluding the late night). Please use registration link to register your children.

Do I have to be currently serving to attend?
While this conference is designed to equip and encourage Abundant Life’s current serve team members, we know the weekend will benefit anyone ready to take their next step at Abundant Life. Not serving yet, what are you waiting for?! This is your year! Sign up NOW at

What is the cost of the weekend?
Have you heard the phrase, “Nothing in life is FREE”? Well, we aren’t saying that is a lie, but this Leadership Summit is FREE. It will cost you zip, zero, nada. This is our gift to you! Sorry, no refunds will be available.

Is childcare available?
We want our Journey Kids volunteers to be blessed by this weekend as well, so we will provide childcare for ages three and under (late night excluded) by registration only.

What can I expect?
Fun, phenomenal teaching from some of our great staff and pastors at Abundant Life, worship, coaching and training, and fun (did we mention this will not be like any other leadership event that you have experienced). Leading and serving are fun!

Will this be livestreamed?
Yes, the main sessions will be livestreamed for those that are not able to make it in person. Some of the breakout sessions will be recorded and distributed at a later date.
