Crucible Creative is owned by Tony Jones, an entrepreneurial theologian, author, and speaker. Since 1999, Tony has been a featured speaker at national and international events. He began planning events shortly thereafter, including the Emergent Theological Conversation and the Emergent/YS Convention. The author of over a dozen books, Tony began producing conferences in 2008 with the Church Basement Roadshow. The work of Crucible Creative then branched out to Social Phonics Bootcamps, Christianity21, The Great Emergence with Phyllis Tickle & Friends, and Progressive Youth Ministry. Today, Tony continues to develop innovative events, whether it be for hundreds of participants at the ReKnew Conference, or seven in the Boundary Waters Learning Adventure.
