Space for Grace 2022


Join American Baptist Home Mission Societies at Space for Grace

The 2022 Space for Grace theme—Testify!—speaks to the need in these times for diverse voices sharing genuine, honest dialogue about issues of Christian leadership, discipleship and justice. Its biblical foundation comes from 2 Corinthians:

“For it is the God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not destroyed.”  — 2 Corinthians 4: 6 – 9

Spiritual Caregivers Conference

For the first time, Space for Grace welcomes the Spiritual Caregivers Conference, Sept. 19 & 20—developed to offer rest and renewal to chaplains, pastoral counselors and specialized ministers.

Space For Grace Conference

The Spiritual Caregivers conference precedes Space for Grace to be held on Sept. 21 – 23 with the theme Testify!. This conference features diverse voices and honest conversations you won’t want to miss!

Testify! will offer a place and space for telling God’s good news … and hearing it too. When we testify to each other in God’s love, our testimonies become gifts of grace that strengthen and affirm the faith we carry into facing the challenges of daily life.

Just like previous Space for Grace gatherings, “Testify!”—at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center—will provide opportunities to connect with passionate speakers and network with workshop leaders and fellow participants.
