We live in exciting times!
If current trends continue, we could see the Great Commission – God’s great command for all Jesus followers to spread the gospel to all the nations of the world – fulfilled within a generation.
This is a call to all communicators – so we can all play our part. Come together for a week of focused collaboration, be inspired, and catch God’s heart for this moment in America and the nations. It will be a rewarding and fun time being together.
Who should join the Great Communication Intensive?
The Intensive is for experienced and gifted Christian communicators across the full spectrum of communications – visual, words, influence in all spheres.
We imagine this to be a meeting of minds, where everybody contributes their expertise as well as receives valuable insights. There is much to be gained from connecting with people across disciplines.
Ideally you will have a good bit of practice as:
- photographers & videographers
- graphic designers & illustrators
- social media & content creators
- story tellers & journalists
We all have our go-to sources for inspiration – discover and share your (new) favorite resources and ways to keep the creative spark alive.
Short bursts of creative genius. Show off some of the stuff you are really good at and be impressed by others.
Get insights from experts, participants, TED talks and discuss how this affects your field of influence.
A forum to present great examples, projects that worked and some that didn’t, life lessons and how your environment impacts you.
The creative community can be a peculiar lot. This is a safe place to share your odd fascinations, crazes, pet peeves and little obsessions.

Following the Intensive, we hope you will consider becoming part of the team facilitating the All.America project. This could be done from anywhere in as little as one hour a week.
All. America is an initiative of call2all and brings together a multitude of ministries to reach America at this important hour.
The aim is to adopt every person and school in America in prayer and connect them with Jesus, the Bible and a Christian Community.
Here are some graphics to help you spread the word on social media.
Can I arrive earlier or leave later?
You are welcome to arrive Sunday and/or leave Saturday – extra nights (including meals): $35 per night
We hope you’d consider investing some of your time and talent with the All.America initiative over the coming years, but that is fully your choice. You could do this from wherever you are based.
We trust taking part in the Intensive will be a rich time for everyone, even if you can’t commit to any ongoing involvement.
Can I participate in the Intensive remotely?
Sorry, we can’t offer that option.
We expect a lot of worthwhile discussions will happen around the table, over dinner or after hours. Also, most of the presenters will share their input via video links – so we will reserve as much bandwidth as we can.
I am new to this, can I still come?
The Intensive will be interactive and draw from each other’s experience and as such isn’t aimed for people just starting out.
Will content be recorded and made available after the event?
This seems like a good idea. We have not decided yet, as we really want to be participants in the moment.
Is this just for YWAMers?
No – we would love to see a great spread of Christian communicators from any number of backgrounds.
Is this America centric?
A key goal is to build a bigger team of communicators to volunteer their time with the All.America project. But the skills learned can be used anywhere.
Will there be translation?
Some of the presenters might be translated, but we expect attendees to have a good grasp of English as we are not planning to offer interpretation into other languages.
