I love attending conferences. I always have. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there is something about being part of a conference that energizes me and I rarely have attended a conference without finding great value in it. If you’re looking for a fun way to grow in your relationship with Christ and as a missional disciple, why not consider one of these conferences:
