Join Us for a Regional Connection Event

These one-day events are a great opportunity for you to gather with other Love INC affiliates in your region. Together, we’ll share updates, engage in collaborative input on ministry challenges, spend time in prayer, and enjoy each other’s company.

Kirk Vander Molen, Love INC National Executive Director, and other key Love INC National leaders will facilitate our time together, as well as provide a word of encouragement, and share some information on how affiliates can help grow the Love INC Movement. 

We hope you can join us!

This free event is for key stakeholders, such as lead staff, board members, key volunteers, and dedicated partners. We are planning for up to 10 people from each affiliate to attend, but will likely have some flexibility. If you’d like to bring more, reach out to us to see if we have room.

Finally, in order to plan our event well and make sure we have enough delicious lunches ordered for everyone, we are requiring registration. Click on your event below to register now.
