New This Year: Watch Parties!

Gather up to 10 people to engage in the online conference together. You will receive one login to the online experience platform to watch on the day of the event (for use on up to 2 screens).

Your team can gather together for a time of strategic planning and debriefing during lunch breaks or at the end of the day. This is a great opportunity to engage in leadership development and then dream together how you might implement what you’ve learned in your context. You have access to the on-demand replay of the sessions for the next 6 months*, so you can gather your group together any time to re-watch a session or any of the breakout workshops.

How much does it cost?


Have more than 10 participants? Purchase additional watch parties in increments of 10, and receive an additional log in to the online experience platform.

How do I register for a watch party?

Use the same registration form, but select "Watch Party" as the registration type.

*Note: The replay for the Keynote Session with Bob Goff is limited to 30 days after the event.

About Church of the Resurrection

We began in 1990 as a church for thoughtful people who were not actively involved in church. It was a place where they could become followers of Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, find meaningful relationships, and be sent out each week, inspired to serve God by serving others.

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection began with four people, and today more than 30,000 people worship with us in person, online and on television each week. We have five locations in the Kansas City area, each one sharing the same unified vision and heartbeat, but offering unique ministries in its own neighborhood.

Our PURPOSE is to build a Christian community where non- and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.

Our VISION is to be used by God to change lives, strengthen churches and transform the world.

Our JOURNEY is to know, love and serve God.
