​I Saw a Vast Crowd: 

Explorations in Multiethnic Ministry 

May 4-7

Circle of Hope and Nations Worship Center

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Registration and information about financial assistance coming soon.



Mennonite Mission Network, in partnership with Mennonite Church USA Executive BoardEverence, and Mosaic Mennonite Conference, will host the seventh annual Sent Conference.

This invitation is extended to all those who feel sent into the world to be a kingdom presence. There are no limitations on age, education or professional background.

The theme for the 2023 conference is "I Saw a Vast Crowd: Explorations in Multiethnic Ministry." The title is drawn from Revelation 7:9: 

"After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands" (NLT).

The conference will explore how church planters and church leaders do mission with the intentionality of this multiethnic view from Scripture. Participants will connect and learn from fellow church planters and leaders who are doing multiethnic ministry while keeping the church's mission central.

In 2019, Mission Network's Sent Network was established as a natural extension of the Sent Conference. The Sent Network is a virtual course available through Mission Network.

Participants will experience the unique culture and community life of South Philadelphia, with the conference being held in the local languages of Bahasa Indonesia, English and Spanish.

  • Circle of Hope, 2212 South Broad St., and
  • Nations Worship Center, 1506 W Ritner St.
