Evolving Faith

A two-day gathering for the wanderers, wonderers, status quo upenders,
And spiritual refugees to discover you are not alone.

A Chaffee Management Group Event
October 25–27, 2018

Your faith is changing, and everything else seems to be changing with it—your relationships, your views on justice and social issues, your experience with the Church, your very identity.

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.

Curated by Rachel Held Evans and Sarah Bessey and hosted at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center near Asheville, North Carolina, Evolving Faith features a robust diversity of speakers leading conversations around everything from the Bible, to parenting, to politics, to racial justice, to art and science.

So come as you are! Doubters and dreamers are welcome. Parents and singles are welcome. (Note: We offer childcare.) Pastors and church drop-outs, LGBTQ friends and Bible nerds, post-evangelicals and “happy-clappy” Pentecostals—all are welcome to the Table.

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