August 9-12, 2023
Link for webinar, “Looking Good on Zoom” – great preview of what conference will be like
Dear conferee –
I am amazed at the faculty Father has brought together and the wonderful variety of topics they will cover. WOW! This year’s conference is the most in-depth learning experience ever. And you’ve got until December 31 to take advantage of accessing over 100 hours of video replays. I’m thanking Father in advance for how you will be encouraged and equipped to “write His answer” and for the lives He will impact through what He is calling you to write.

The most important thing you can do to prepare for this year’s conference is to seek Him and His will for your writing. I especially want to encourage you to click here for a Bible study on Habakkuk 2:2, our theme verse.
Father, thank You for the freedom we have to “write Your answer.” Please help us to make the most of the opportunities You give us. Use this year’s conference to draw us all closer to You and to equip us to serve You more effectively. Give us Your vision for our writing ministry and encourage us to believe that You will use us to make a difference through the words we write and the lives we live.
Joyfully serving Christ -
