Comments from past attendees:
"The Holy Spirit certainly stoked the fire inside me at the conference last month and it has not even begun to go out."
"....the ministry you were inspired to form has had a profound effect on me and I just can't keep it to myself. I honestly don't know what I would be doing if I had not attended that conference.
"....the speakers...had a great message. This was the best conference I've been to yet."
