I try to get to a least one conference each year. This year I went to a new one (for me) called Arise Shine, in Michigan.
The best part of any conference for me is the people we meet. In fact I like to say that the talks are the breaks in between the “real” conference, which happens in the hallways between the talks.
At this conference I was very happy to have met a few people that I plan to keep in touch with, some young leaders who are planting churches, and some older leaders who I really connected with and who I think will be great comrades in arms. We need camaraderie in ministry.
There’s something very healthy about taking a couple of days to worship, pray, and learn together with other like-minded people.
What conferences are you planning to attend (in-person or online) this year?
