Urban Summit 2019


How do we create economic pathways for all of our city’s young adults? The 2019 Urban Summit invites you to come explore how, together, we can achieve economic justice for the at least 30,000 young adults neither working nor in school in Memphis today. 



When? February 22 6 - 9 P.M. / February 23 9 A.M. - 2 P.M.

Where? Mississippi Boulevard Church

70 N. Bellevue Blvd

Memphis, TN 38104


On February 22nd and 23rd, we will gather at Mississippi Boulevard Church to:


Engage with nationally-recognized faith leaders, innovators working towards community transformation and business leaders pursuing market-based solutions. 


Hear pitches from young adult social innovators and local entrepreneurs in our Urban Summit Idea Slam and Pitch Competition.


Connect with entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, and social entrepreneurs in our Summit Marketplace.


Eat delicious food:

Pursuit of God Transformation Center’s Husband Institute Food Truck will have food available for purchase Friday night.

Prepare to pursue God’s economy in your own life through workshops led by local, expert practitioners that address:

  • How do I support young adults better?
