"I really don't know what you could have done differently or improved upon. It was superb!"

"I was so impressed with how well done the conference was. It was excellent. The breakouts matched the descriptions and gave me so much to ponder and implement. I could have listened to the main session speakers all day. The speakers were prepared and communicated with passion, honesty and understanding of our hearts as servants of Jesus and our desire to do everything we can to reach each new generation with God's deep love for them."


We need to ask ourselves, ‘What do we stand for and why do we exist?’ This should never change. Then feel free to change everything else.
