I hope you'll have a great conference with interesting talks and conversations. And I'm also all for small communities of like-minded people within EA sharing experiences and discussing their (possibly unique) views on the project of world improvement.

I do, however, have some reservations against the phrase "advancing God's kingdom". I'm assuming it just means "increasing wellbeing/reducing suffering for sentient beings" or something along those lines, but I believe that it can be misread as "adopting EA methodology for missionary purposes since we believe this is (Christian) EA's top cause", which would certainly put you beyond the pale of EA thinking/methodology.

Your website doesn't make any such claims, so people interacting with you likely get the right impression, but I just wanted to flag this and similar phrasings as a caveat :)

Thanks for flagging this.

I've updated the language to "do the most good" to avoid any confusion.
