This year's conference theme is Transcending Boundaries - Restoring Hope. The conference is defined as a place where "leading international voices of faith will share their struggles and achievements in developing open and affirming ministries in many countries. Together, they will discuss and learn from one another to understand the call to radical inclusivity – a message of liberation that invites everyone regardless of gender, race, creed, ethnicity, sexual or affectional orientation to explore in full assurance of faith in a God whose love is great enough to hold all."
