Space for Grace

A signature conference of the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, the biannual Space for Grace conference convenes thought leaders, ministry practitioners, preachers, activists, contemplatives, and passionaries from diverse places, vocations, disciplines, cultures, and regions to worship, to network, to learn, to listen, to empower, and to be transformed. 

Save the Dates

After being compelled by the COVID-19 pandemic to cancel the event slated for 2020, ABHMS is already in the planning stages for Space for Grace 2022. Mark your calendars now for the dates: September 21-23, 2022 in Kansas City, MO!

Check Back in 2022!

Space for Grace Speakers

As soon as the planning is complete, you’ll be the first to know the dynamic lineup of thought leaders, experts, and ministry practitioners who will be present to engage with you!

Rev. Rebecca Irwin-Diehl

Director

Rebecca Irwin-Diehl is passionate about learning—learning from books and other media, from listening to and interacting with people as individuals and in community, from immersing hands-on experience. She is also a practical theologian, so she wants learning to have real-world relevance and life-changing application. So, her commitment as Director of the ABHMS Center for Continuous Learning is to be a fellow learner, to practice action-reflection, and to make sure that all CCL offerings are useful for the strengthening of God's people, the renewing of minds, and the transforming of God's world.

Rev. Jeffrey A. Johnson, PhD

Teaching Fellow

Jeff is National Coordinator for Faith Initiation and Discipleship with ABHMS. His particular passion around continuous learning focuses on faith initiation and formation using his signature Got Style? Personality-based Evangelism model (also a book published by Judson Press).

Rev. Christine Roush, DMin

Teaching Fellow

Chris is National Coordinator for Discipleship and Faith Formation with ABHMS. An avid reader and lifelong learner, she is passionate about leadership development and holistic discipleship that is focused on finding those places where God is already at work and spotlighting them as innovative models for faith formation in the current generation.

Jennifer L. Sanborn

Teaching Fellow

Jennifer L. Sanborn has extensive experience in higher education and religious leadership--and the places where they intersect. A strong communicator and gifted facilitator, she is trained as a life coach and thrives in intercultural contexts where individuals are empowered and community is advanced.
