Inspire 2019 was held August 1-3, 2019, at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts in Windsor, Ontario. 

Funded in part by a gift from the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, as well as with gifts from CRC families, ministries, and businesses wishing to support the event, Inspire 2019 provided 720 attendees with the chance to connect with each other, discover new resources, and reimagine together what the future of church ministry could look like. 

Over the course of three days, participants engaged in meaningful worship. They were challenged by four keynote speakers, and had the opportunity to attend workshops on 80 different topics related to congregational life and ministry.
