About SB Mission Conference
To inform, inspire, and engage
The Santa Barbara Mission Conference is an ecumenical Christian mission conference hosted by the Presbytery of Santa Barbara. Our goal is to inform, inspire, and engage all who attend so they will be active in God’s work in the world.
What began in 2003 as a gathering of people and mission groups local to Santa Barbara has blossomed into an annual regional event. With people coming from beyond the tri-counties of California’s south and central coasts and with expanding denominational partnerships, the conference has grown and matured to draw more than 400 attendees and 30 mission groups.
