      “We’re pulling together a diverse group of pastors and leaders who share a passion for evangelism and a love for the local church. Each year, we feature brand-new speakers, fresh ideas, respected research and practical insights that help churches focus on their central calling to share Christ.

      Craig Springer

      Craig Springer

      Executive Director - Alpha USAand author of How to Revive Evangelism

      “We live in a post-Christian, post-modern, post-truth world where the evangelism approaches of the past are increasingly ineffective. The Amplify Outreach conference is helping pastors and their teams ask the right questions together.”

      Kimberly Gladden

      “We bring pastors to Amplify Outreach conference each year to help them focus on developing disciples who live out the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment given by Christ.”

      Kevin Harney

      Author of the Organic Outreach trilogy and founder of Organic Outreach International

      “As I lead outreach in the local church and train church leaders to do effective evangelism, I look to the Wheaton College Billy Graham Center and Outreach magazine as top resources. They both provide practical tools and ideas that are grounded in Scripture and tested in the local church. I can’t wait to see what God will do through this dynamic new partnership!”

      Sam Chan

      Sam Chan

      Public Evangelist with City Bible Forum in Sydney, Australia, and author of How to Talk About Jesus (Without Being THAT Guy)

      “It’s in the heart of every Christian to want their friends to hear about Jesus. But how do we do this in a world that has stopped listening? I love how the Amplify Outreach conference will not only empower but get us excited to share the great news in our ever-changing word.”

      Christine Caine

      Christine Caine

      Founder Propel Women
