About the e3 Kairos Summit
Kairos is a Greek word meaning “the right moment” or “the most opportune moment”. We feel this is the perfect way to describe this particular moment in history. We are living in a critical time, full of opportunity to advance the Kingdom of God across the world. That’s why we are organizing this special e3 Kairos Summit—to hear from our national partners and e3 leaders about the things that God is teaching us that will help us maximize the impact on God’s Kingdom during this unique season.
The e3 Kairos Summit will take place virtually on Friday evening, November 20th from 5pm until 8pm CDT, and then reconvene the following morning, Saturday, November 21st from 9am until 1:30pm CDT.
Our goal with this special gathering is to inform and inspire you about how God is working mightily in our generation and to discuss how we can most effectively cooperate with Him in seeing multiplication of disciples and churches throughout the world.
