To empower participants to continue in their call to be in mission together and to work towards reconciliation and healing in Christ in God's world today.


to infuse participants with new vision, energy, tools and skills to bring the holistic mission imperative alive again;
to enable the conference to be a living community of reconciliation and healing;
to experience healing and reconciliation that leads to the transformation of persons;
to offer safe/sacred spaces where reflections, theories and stories can be heard, and dialogue take place;
to strive to be a sign of reconciliation and healing among the churches;
to celebrate our unity in Christ and our God-given diversity;
to enable participants to commit themselves to be agents/multipliers of reconciliation and healing in their own churches, communities and contexts.
