Conspire Magazine is about plotting goodness together. As we seek to give form and structure to our journeys and wanderings, I am thrilled to announce that Conspire has hired two wonderful individuals.
Jonathan Wilson Hargrove is the new Executive Editor and John Pattison will act as the Managing Editor. Together they will help us celebrate creativity, connection, and faith as we breathe together.
