CCDA 30th Annual Conference

Come to the CCDA 30th Annual National Conference at Chicago’s McCormick Place November 1-3 and stay at the nearby and affordable LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park.

November 3rd is a very special day at the CCDA 30th Annual National Conference, specifically designed for you to explore the diverse neighborhoods, ministries and businesses of our “Chicago Go & Sees.” We are providing conference participants an opportunity to visit the neighborhoods and communities of this year’s host city—learning from local practitioners and experiencing the history and unique characteristics of Chicago.

Some Go & Sees also include on-site workshops, offering practical tools and insights from local leaders. Each Go & See will have a $10 fee for the lunch that is provided by the organization and some may have a $10 transportation fee.

Guest Speakers: Dominique DuBois Gilliard. Gilliard is the Director of Racial Righteousness and Reconciliation for the Evangelical Covenant Church. He also serves on the board of directors for CCDA and Evangelicals for Justice. Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil is a dynamic speaker, author, professor, and thought-leader with over 30 years of experience in the ministry of reconciliation.

Local/Regional Networks and Affinity Groups: These sessions are designed​ to create space for ​Local and Regional Networks or Affinity groups to connect. Local and Regional Networks gather around proximity. ​Affinity Networks gather around a common area of interest and can range from church planting to important social issues. We hope you bring your ideas and take advantage of this member benefit to lead a part of our conference which strengthens our ability to connect.
