“When GuideStone established the Employee Benefits Summit, we hoped to bring in our people and outside experts to make a one-of-its-kind conference for church and ministry leaders,” Dilbeck said. “This year’s conference is the latest example of that goal coming to fruition.”

Jorge Cisneros of United City Church will lead worship. Afshin Ziafat, pastor of the Dallas-area Providence Church in Frisco, Texas, will speak at a keynote on The Gospel and the Future of Multi-Ethnic Ministry.
