Spire Huddles are an exciting online interactive experience where you can connect with other church leaders and discuss important topics presented by expert speakers. Spire Huddles are a conversation, not a typical webinar. More than half of the time will be spent in small groups with leaders like you. By the time you complete a Spire Huddle, you will hear from an expert, connect with a mentor and leave with an actionable plan to apply your learnings.
Spire Huddles are roughly 90-minutes long on scheduled Wednesdays at 1:00 PM Eastern Time Zone, October 2020 through February 2021. There will be an additional 30-minutes for final questions at the end of the main presentation. See below for specific dates. All Spire Huddles are FREE! Select which Huddle(s) you will attend, then, click on the registration button at the bottom of the list.
We will put you in a small group as a part of the Huddle experience. We only have room for approximately 100 attendees for each Huddle so if you need to cancel your registration, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
