Leader - Roberta Egli and Johannah Myers
Messy Church is a global movement that focuses on a way to be church for all-ages together to engage in faith formative activities celebrating the centrality of the love of Jesus Christ. The messy pandemic world has led to innovative changes in ‘how’ Messy Church works but has strengthened the ‘why’ Messy Church is reaching unchurched and de-churched people. Join us as we share how our Messy Churches have adapted and continue to quickly adapt to the changing environment.

In 2017, in partnership with the global Messy Church movement, she led a team to establish All-Age Faith Formation, a 5013c nonprofit, which is the home for Messy Church USA.
