First Baptist Church of Glenarden Presents

Virtual Church Leadership Conference

Beyond! is a conference designed to help church volunteers, ministry leaders, non-profit organizations and entrepreneurs develop innovative strategies and methods that will elevate their organizations to the next level.

June 18-19, 2021


The Beyond! Conference returns in June of 2021 for another virtual, life-transforming experience! It’s an amazing opportunity to virtually collaborate with seasoned ministry, non-profit and business leaders from across the country in the areas of church operations, discipleship, congregational care, digital and so much more! You’ll learn practical tools and innovative ways to engage your audiences while still remaining relevant and sustainable during the current COVID-19 pandemic and far beyond it. Conference attendees will access all that the Beyond! Conference has to offer from the comfort and safety of their homes, through a user-friendly virtual platform. 

Transition to Transformation

This year’s theme is Transition to Transformation. The pandemic has revolutionized the way we do church. In many ways, it has compelled us to become more flexible and nimbler in our approach. We’ve experienced a mind shift and have had to acclimate to newness. We’ve expanded our reach beyond the capacities of the church building, resulting in a virtual church that often feels like a campus of its own. So what started off as a temporary transition has ultimately pivoted into a complete transformation in how we do ministry – and in some areas a permanent part of the liturgy landscape.


This year we’re offering over 30 workshops covering a range of topics: digital, church operations, discipleship, congregational care and much more. As a participant, you’ll have the option to move beyond the tracks and select whatever workshop piques your interest.  This is your opportunity to ask questions directly to the FBCG subject matter experts.

Following the conference, all content will be available for attendees to watch and revisit for 30 days.
