The Rebuilt Conference is for pastors, parish leaders and anyone who is interested in their church or parish community. While the conference is offered in the context of our Catholic faith, it is also open to all our brothers and sisters in Christ.
At Rebuilt 2018, you’ll attend three main sessions in which Fr. Michael White, Tom Corcoran, and guest speakers will share their latest thoughts on leadership and how to make church matter. In addition we’ll have dozens of breakouts that dive deeper into leadership, administration, and ministry programs at a parish level.
New this year, we are offering an optional Early Experience that includes an opportunity to attend two early roundtable sessions on Monday afternoon. Space is limited so be sure to register early before all the spots are filled.
The staff at Church of the Nativity is excited to host you at Rebuilt 2018! We look forward to networking, having fun, and worshiping with you and over 1,000 other parish leaders from North America and beyond. We hope you’ll leave Rebuilt 2018 feeling refreshed and knowing you can do something in your parish community right now.

Michael served as the director of the papal visit of Pope John Paul II to Baltimore.
During Fr. Michael’s tenure as pastor at Church of the Nativity, the church has almost tripled in weekend attendance. More importantly, commitment to the mission of the Church has grown, evidenced by the significant increase of giving and service in ministry, and much evidence of genuine spiritual renewal. Fr. Michael is the coauthor of Rebuilt – which narrates the story of Nativity’s rebirth – Tools for Rebuilding, and Rebuilding Your Message.

Prior to that, Jeff received a BA with honors in Humanities from Antioch University, Yellow Springs, Ohio and then went on to receive Bible training from Christ for the Nations Institute, Dallas, Texas and the Institute of Ministry, Bradenton, Florida.
