By the church. For the church.


Dear Pastor,

We invite you to come alongside the growing number of churches in our community who are Church Partners with MissionConnexion Southwest 2023. This year’s conference is being held at Grace Community Church in Tempe, Arizona, November 3 – 4, 2023.

MissionConnexion began in the Portland, Oregon area in 2001. Our mission is: “Connecting God’s people to mission through regional conferences and focus events so that increasing numbers of believers are actively serving in areas of the world’s greatest gospel need and opportunity.”

This will be the third year our conference is being held in the Greater Phoenix area. It’s an amazing opportunity for individuals and church partners to come together with MissionConnexion in seeking to mobilize hundreds of believers in growing in their commitment to missions.

By the Church. For the Church.

For over 20 years, MissionConnexion has been a growing network of churches like yours across the country that collaborate, share best biblical practices for missions’ engagement, mobilization and discipleship. MissionConnexion Southwest is held in partnership with local churches in our community who are connecting God’s people to mission.

The MissionConnexion Southwest conference this year will feature 40+ engaging workshops, 40 exhibitors, as well as four compelling keynote speakers. In addition, the conference will now include two new preconference Focus Events: the MissionExcellence Standards Introductory Workshop and Leadership Connexion.

Your Church Attends for Free

There is no admission fee for individuals to attend MissionConnexion Southwest. If your hope and dream is to see members in your church grow in their commitment to missions either by serving directly or by supporting others involved in cross-cultural service, we help you connect with the people, places and things your members need to know to go forward on mission here in the Southwest or around the world.

We believe that whatever just cause your church is focusing on to reach our community or the nations, you will benefit by coming together and learning from other partnering churches and various organizations.
