Inhabit Conference 2014 North America – April 25-26
Inhabit Conference 2014 United Kingdom – October 3-4 (Coming Soon)

Inhabit was founded in 2010 through an energetic partnership between The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology and the Parish Collective. Through a series of events, both organizations began to entertain a simple hunch: What if God is up to something really big and global but it can only be discovered through the small and local? It was through the exploration of that question that Inhabit was born – a gathering for the sake of reimagining church and transforming neighborhoods. We feel immensely grateful and excited about the ongoing growth of our intimate conference. We feel privileged that year after year, hundreds of practitioners, pastors, entrepreneurs, community leaders and lay people from all over North America come together to connect, collaborate and celebrate the good work being done in thousands of neighborhoods and parishes. These are the people who are empowering others to join in the commitment with the Spirit’s work in one’s own particular neighborhood and context, that then illuminates fresh hope for the church in the 21st century. As we anticipate Inhabit in its 4th year, we’ll convene a diverse cross-section of pioneering leaders who come to meet new friends, learn from one another, and are sent back reinvigorated to join in God’s dream of reconciliation and renewal for the very particular place they call home. With a dynamic mix of participatory environments, insights from seasoned leaders, and rich storytelling, the Inhabit Conference is a uniquely creative event year after year. We look forward to being with you on April 25 and 26!



  • What a gift the notion of the parish is for our time. And what a joy to know this Collective that's figuring out how to breath life into this ancient notion in our time.

    Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, author of Strangers at My Door
  • Paul, Tim and Dwight enflesh this ancient Christian practice with 21st century creativity and acumen. This book is a must-read for church leaders and every-day faith practitioners alike.

    Tony Kriz, author of Neighbors and Wise Men
  • The New Parish encourages us to practice an incarnational faith that not only transforms our neighborhoods but our own lives as well … We need solid guides for this path, and Sparks, Friesen, and Soerens are just that.
