Xenos Summer Institute | July 13-15, 2022

What an extraordinary 3-days we had at the 2022 Xenos Summer Institute. Many of you have told us how the teachings were personally timely for this season in your spiritual life and that they were a source of motivation and encouragement. We are so grateful! We are surprised each year by God and how he works throughout this conference. We are glad you could attend! If you did not make it to XSI this year, you can watch the plenary sessions on our XSI Youtube channel and listen to the breakout sessions on our church website.


The 2022 Xenos Summer Institute was July 13th through the 15th. The theme was, Last = First. Jesus made the statement, "many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first" (Matthew 19:30). Christ's followers are called to lose their lives for Him (Mark 8:35); His leaders are to be "least" (Luke 9:48).  How shall we understand these statements? How should we apply them, especially in such a time of upheaval?  This conference answered those questions and more by cutting to the heart of Christian leadership and service.
