ThinkNEXT – Spring ’23

Leadership Summit

Feb 28 – Mar 2 – Dallas, TX

Join Us For ThinkNEXT!


Engaging Culture

Generations are leaving the church in droves, creating many heartbreaking statistics that indicate our nation is increasingly abandoning the Christian faith. Our culture is post-modern, post-Christian, and pretty much post-logical. It’s difficult to know how to engage our culture as a church leader. But we still have one thing on our side: The Gospel!
The world has always been crazy and lacking direction; now is our time to lead it. The church is an unwavering force when unified and in pursuit of making a loving impact on people in our communities. Even though most people in our culture aren’t interested in attending church anymore, they are still interested in having spiritual conversations about Christ. We simply need to adapt and learn to speak their language.


Main Speakers

Join us at ThinkNEXT this Spring to hear from two innovative servants who are engaging the lost using modern methods with tremendous effectiveness.

Damon Kerry Snyder

Kerry brings to Gloo more than 20 years of ministry experience to help churches become more Spirit-led, Christ-centered, and data-informed. He is a creative communicator and speaker who thrives on helping people discover, understand, and apply God’s word. At Gloo, he works with some of the most influential churches in the world on vision casting, ministry strategy, and technology initiatives to capture the attention of various audiences and move them deeper into their faith journeys. He is passionate about helping churches create healthy staff cultures, develop leaders, and be a trusted voice and coach to pastors and leaders. He resides in beautiful Colorado with his wife Robin, and two boys.

Chris Abbott

Chris Abbott is a YouTuber and the co-owner of Church Marketing University with Ryan Wakefield. Chris is the creator of the Plan Your Visit Model and the Prayer Ads System, and he is one of the leading experts on Facebook Ads for Churches. His experience as a pastor and entrepreneur helped him discover a way to use Ministry-Based Marketing to grow his church, and now he helps other churches do the same.  He and his team have helped over 50,000 pastors and church leaders through Church Marketing University, free ministry resources, and online coaching programs. You can find him on his YouTube Channel where he teaches pastors how to use Ministry-Based Marketing and simple tools like a Visitor Growth Engine to get the word out, attract a steady stream of new Sunday morning visitors, and ultimately make Heaven crowded.
