2015 National Gathering on Urban Transformation
April 23-25, 2015 at Wesley Seminary Downtown in Washington, D.C.

Transform started in 2009 as an intersectional, trans-denominational missional community formation & collective action network. We are a network of over 1,500 practitioners and change makers spread throughout the country and overseas who are deeply concerned with the state of the world and who wish to partner with what God is already doing to heal it.

intersectional — Transform is a place of many intersections and thus we hold space for community in the presence of difference, we embrace plurality informed deeply by mutual and collective liberation

trans-denominational — working across denominational lines, in partnership with existing denominations, as well as with independent non-denominational groups

missional — participating with God in God’s holistic mission to restore all of creation and joining with broader movements for positive social change

formational — contributing to the formation of vibrant communities of practice that in turn contribute to the formation of robust disciples of Jesus Christ

collective action — traditionally defined as any action taken together by a group of people whose goal is to achieve a common objective. We want this action to be deeply formed by our faith as well as contextualized to and borne from within the community served.

Transform 2015 is a unique working-style conference that will attract mavens of progressive Christianity (and beyond) from across the United States. Transform participants are pastors, activists, seminary students, church planters, community organizers, academics, and progressive Christians from all walks of life. We attract people who are ready to move beyond conversation into action. This year we have a focus on urban ministry and collective action. These two topics will attract a multi-cultural group of participants who will engage to take on the challenges we face as people of faith. Partners are welcome to join in the conversations alongside the conference participants in this highly engaging and participatory environment.

Partners like you are important to this event for a couple of reasons. First, partners help make this event happen, but secondly, you help connect us with the good work already happening in the world that we wish to connect with and embody. We look forward to connecting you with our participants and welcome your participation in this year’s gathering.
