Summer Conference: July 15-18

This year we are celebrating our 30th anniversary back in Dallas, Texas where it all started. Our host church is First Baptist Dallas, which just completed its $130 million renovation in the heart of downtown Dallas. This will be a banner year for our group, so make every effort to be a part of it. We are expecting our highest attended event ever!

Appropriately, our theme this year is “Lights in the City” based on Matthew 5:14-16:

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

This year’s conference provides fantastic opportunities for spiritual refreshment, professional collaboration, and family fun! Bryan and Jenni Bailey are working diligently to provide an experience that will have you leaving excited and renewed.

Tuesday night will be a great time to meet some of our new folks and reconnect with old friends. We will also have the pleasure of participating in a wonderful night of worship without having to press a single button! For many, this is the only chance all year we will have to worship together with our families, so bring them with you! Jenni has some great plans for the ladies and kids, so be looking for more of those details to come to you after you have registered.

This year, we will continue our separate tracks for Communications and Technical areas, so come prepared to engage and learn from others. As always, our sponsors will join us, and there will be plenty of opportunities to interact with them. In addition, there will be an entire day devoted to touring several of the fantastic venues in the Dallas area (more details to be leaked soon…). We will also have an optional time on Wednesday night for everyone to get hands-on with all of the new gear just installed at First Baptist Dallas. This will be a great opportunity to explore ideas for your church’s technical needs, and speak directly with some of our sponsors.

We are pulling out all the stops to make this a great year in the life of our ministry. The strength of our ministry depends on the commitment you make to it and each other. If you have been hanging back over the years, now is the time to reengage. As an added incentive, the first 10 fully paid registrants will be entered into a drawing to win an exciting prize. We are going to keep it a secret for now, but trust us when we say that you want a one-in-ten chance of taking it home with you.
