Welcome to our Third Annual Justice Summit. We look forward to spending the next two days with you marinating in the presence of God, exalting Jesus, receiving the Holy Spirit’s ministry and making new connections with fellow justice warriors. We hope our lineup will encourage you to challenge your personal frontiers, both in worship and in Great Commission activity. It is our privilege to serve you, and I hope to be able to greet you personally during our time together.


Cat French
Founder and Director of Elijah Rising

This year’s theme honors the Salvation Army, “Blood and Fire” emblazoned the uniform of the Salvation Army – bold and fearless “salvationists” who searched for souls in london’s darkest neighborhoods. We honor their legacy and dare to believe that God is raising up a new generation of salvationists to boldly go with the fire of the Holy Spirit and the Blood of the Lamb to reach the enslaved with the uncompromising love of Jesus.
