The GoSummit is a two-day event for the GoCorps executive leadership and GoCorps sending partners to gather and connect on a new year of sending all majors to all nations. We will discuss innovations to the mobilizing and sending process, share expertise and best practices to help us grow to a new level of effectiveness together and individually, and fellowship with one to sharpen our unity and vision towards equipping the next generation to find their place in God’s global work.
We are looking forward to gathering in-person again for the annual Sending Partner GoSummit for the first time since 2019!

If you are driving, please arrive in the offices - 121 South 8th St. Suite 940, Minneapolis, MN 55402 - at 2pm. There are a few nearby parking garages or lots you can park in for a fee (enter the address into parkopedia.com to see the best options and even reserve in advance). Street parking has a two hour limit and many must be moved by 4pm, so we do not recommend street parking.
If you are flying, book your plane ticket to arrive at the Minneapolis/St.Paul airport (MSP) by 1:00pm on Monday, August 15th and leave anytime after 4:00pm on Wednesday, August 17th.
You can take the LightRail public transportation system straight from the MSP airport into downtown. The closest stop is Nicolett Mall. From there, it is a 0.2 mile walk to the office. See route below. There will be space to store your luggage if you do not have a chance to stop at your lodging beforehand.
Our meeting location is the Conference Room on the 2nd Floor, located behind the 2nd Floor Security Desk.
Please arrange your own lodging. There are a few downtown hotels within walking distance, if you prefer to stay downtown so you do not need to rent a car. Mike has done some research into the best downtown hotel options, which you can see here. If you'd be interested in sharing a double room with another sending partner rep, we can coordinate that with those who are interested. Please email [email protected] to let us know you're interested.
If you are staying somewhere other than downtown, you can use the LightRail or visit parkopedia.com to see the closest parking garages and lots.
The cost of the GoSummit is $200 per rep and is due at the start of the event. This includes all of your meals, activities, and materials. Please mail a check payable to GoCorps to 6736 Regent Ave N, Brooklyn Center, MN 55429 or bring it with you to check-in (preferred).
