Evangelism is dead.

Ok, I don't actually mean that but, it's definitely NOT a priority at most churches.


Because churches get busy (I get it).

But evangelism and outreach are how churches SPREAD THE GOSPEL to the dying and the hopeless.

So, yeah, evangelism and outreach are kind of a big deal.

What Leaders Are Saying

Ed Stetzer

Executive Director - Wheaton College Billy Graham Center

“We’re pulling together a diverse group of pastors and leaders who share a passion for evangelism and a love for the local church. Each year, we feature brand-new speakers, fresh ideas, respected research and practical insights that help churches focus on their central calling to share Christ. As we emerge from this global pandemic, our churches need the innovation and encouragement they’ll receive at this year’s event.”


John K. Jenkins Sr.

Senior Pastor - First Baptist Church of Glenarden

“Wheaton’s Amplify Outreach conference is an annual infusion of vision and skills to create and nurture a culture of evangelism in your church, which is foundational to a healthy church’s growth.”


Craig Springer

Executive Director - Alpha USAand author of How to Revive Evangelism

“We live in a post-Christian, post-modern, post-truth world where the evangelism approaches of the past are increasingly ineffective. The Amplify Outreach conference is helping pastors and their teams ask the right questions together.”


Kimberly Gladden

Director of Discipleship - The Wesleyan Church

“We bring pastors to Amplify Outreach conference each year to help them focus on developing disciples who live out the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment given by Christ.”


Kevin Harney

Author of the Organic Outreach trilogy and founder of Organic Outreach International

“As I lead outreach in the local church and train church leaders to do effective evangelism, I look to the Wheaton College Billy Graham Center and Outreach magazine as top resources. They both provide practical tools and ideas that are grounded in Scripture and tested in the local church. I can’t wait to see what God will do through this dynamic new partnership!”

Sam Chan

Public Evangelist with City Bible Forum in Sydney, Australia, and author of How to Talk About Jesus (Without Being THAT Guy)

“It’s in the heart of every Christian to want their friends to hear about Jesus. But how do we do this in a world that has stopped listening? I love how the Amplify Outreach conference will not only empower but get us excited to share the great news in our ever-changing word.”

Christine Caine

Christine Caine

Founder Propel Women

“The Gospel is the most important message on earth. The Amplify Outreach Conference at Wheaton will equip you to make Jesus’ last commandment your first priority.”
