TMF's Denominational Leaders event followed another gathering of 80 innovative community leaders that Angie Thurston and Casper ter Kuile convened at Harvard Divinity School in December 2016. That event was similar in purpose and audience to the Denominational Leaders event hosted by TMF in Austin on January 16-17, 2017.
