Stewarding Capital

A briefing about aligning all your capital to His mission

Thursday, September 26, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Spend the afternoon (before the conference kicks off) with your Gathering peers to learn and discuss what it means to deploy all your capital for impact. Beyond making grants, most participants at The Gathering are also responsible for stewarding foundation endowments, family offices, and personal assets. How can we effectively steer those dollars toward significant impact while generating financial returns? Whether you’re just learning about “mission-related investing” or you’ve already allocated your entire portfolio to faith-driven investments, get to Dallas early to join the conversation.

Nonprofit Showcase
& Luncheon

Saturday, September 28, 12:15 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The Praxis Showcase highlights 12 Christian-led, top nonprofit organizations as they seek the redemptive edge in their industries. Over the course of a year, selected Praxis Fellows attend four events: a kickoff event within the annual Praxis Redemptive Imagination Summit in May, a four-day retreat outside of New York in July, a three-day gathering near Los Angeles in September, and this Showcase event at The Gathering. At Praxis mentoring events, Fellows are guided by over 30 incredible mentors from top nonprofits, foundations, and businesses. In addition, the Praxis Core Team works with each entrepreneur to deeply examine their redemptive strategy (the venture’s expression and impact in the world); redemptive operations (its functions, processes, culture, and partnerships); and redemptive leadership (the founders’ character, motives, imagination, and practices).

The goal of Praxis is to provide Fellows with the knowledge and network they need to create world-class organizations, all within a safe setting that encourages them to explore how to fully express the Gospel within their work. As you get to know the Fellows, you’ll be encouraged about this next generation of talent who are building redemptive ventures around the world. The Showcase event includes five-minute pitches from each of the 2019 Nonprofit Fellows (12 ventures), followed by an informal Open House for you to meet and interact with our wonderful group of entrepreneurs.
