Ash Wednesday at Near North

March 01, 2017 at Park Community Church in Chicago.


“Death cannot stop real life. Dead things don’t stay dead in the rich economy of God’s mercy.”

We know that some may be surprised that a protestant church would celebrate Lent, but for the last several years we have been gathering together for Ash Wednesday to recognize the 40 days prior to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. It’s not a biblical thing – it’s not found anywhere in the scriptures – but throughout church history, the fathers of the church inaugurated something called Ash Wednesday and Lent as a time for people to prepare their hearts and minds for Easter. The reality is that the business of life can allow Easter to sneak up on us – so Lent is a time of preparation and reflection and repentance- to get ourselves, our hearts, and our minds in the right place to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Join us for a reflective worship gathering at our Near North location.

* Childcare will be provided.

Connectiv Executive Summit

May 03, 2017 at The Westin Chicago River North in Chicago.


Are you leading change? Put another way, are you a change agent or are you just trying to keep up? Change is increasingly imposed on businesses externally, and the speed of iterative technological change is leaving many CEOs in the dust. Whether you like it or not, only change endures, and as an industry we are often looking at the future in the rear view mirror when it’s too late to change.

Bad news? We see it as a world of opportunity!

Come to the 2017 Connectiv Executive Summit for an immersion in the macro trends that are defining the B2B information industry; the solutions that peers are innovating to keep their businesses relevant and sustainable; and meaningful connections that propel collaborations and partnerships.

We will introduce a new, more interactive approach this year with keynotes, case studies and group discussions peppered with quick-take presentations on innovative solutions to universal business problems and industry insights presented by sponsor experts. Sessions will be designed in 20-minute segments to keep the meeting fast-paced and interesting.
