MARCHA 2018 – August 2-5, Charlotte, NC

Welcome to MARCHA 2018

In a time when many forces threaten to pull us apart and of much uncertainty about the future, we hear God’s call to imagine a Way Forward, United in our Diversity. At this year’s gathering, we will come together for meaningful times of worship, fellowship, learning, and generative conversations about how to cultivate genuine unity that honors and celebrates our multi-faceted diversity so that we can be a witness of Christ love, mercy and justice in a world in need of God’s healing.



MARCHA 2018 will feature a dynamic program filled with opportunities for learning and development, including: inspiring worship, provocative plenaries, engaging panels, experiential learning, small group work, and times for fellowship, networking and fun!
