Following Recent Reports of Alarming Attrition Rates in U.S. Pastorate, Thousands of Church Leaders to Join for "Beyond All Limits 2" Conference in Orlando, Jan. 21-23

Beyond All Limits 2 is a three-day conference for pastors worldwide, designed to equip, instruct, teach, and encourage church leaders in their daily ministry efforts. An outreach of international ministry Global Pastors Network, the event will feature more than 70 leading Christian speakers, pastors, authors, and musicians who will conduct concurrent or breakout sessions for attendees.

Every month, some 1,600 pastors in U.S. churches quit or resign from their jobs and nearly 20 percent of clergy suffer stress or burnout, according to recently published reports and research studies (Charlotte Observer, Alban Institute). Beyond All Limits 2 is designed to encourage, refresh, and equip pastors and church leaders for the everyday trials they face in their work.

Thousands of pastors and church leaders from across the world will gather for inspiring presentations from leading speakers, including Gary Smalley (Smalley Relationship Center), Jack Graham (president, Southern Baptist Convention), John Maxwell (INJOY/GPN), Eddie Long (New Birth Missionary Baptist Church), and Ted Haggard (president, National Association of Evangelicals).
