The idea driven conference
The SWAP conference is international, taking place on various continents. It exists to bring communities together to collaborate on new, fresh and insightful ideas.
It discusses the three distinctive approaches of Pais over 3 days. Each day starts with a keynote presentation and is followed by three sessions that include a twenty-minute presentation of a new idea, and forty-minutes of creative collaboration. These nine ideas are themed together so that day one is based around the Pais Mission distinctive, day two Discipleship, and day three Study. Fringe seminars: At some venues, there will be fringe seminars on specific subjects. For instance, at some of the SWAPs based around the element of ‘Education,’ there may be a series on schools work. We record the best of these ideas on video and upload them to our resource website for free viewing.
SWAP Luncheons bring together leaders in a specific local community. They connect over a meal, hear a guest speaker share their story and a practical idea for 20 minutes, that fits into the theme of Mission, Discipleship and Study. Participants then spend 45 minutes in collaboration to sharpen and create new ideas for their area of leadership. SWAP luncheons are happening all over the world and talks are often uploaded onto our resource website for free viewing.
