A Message from Our Executive Director

We have several exciting events coming up. Because of your incredible value to the Kingdom and to us, I hope you can join!
Several Regional Prayer Gatherings are planned as a follow-up to the annual Statewide Pastors Prayer Gathering and the Prayer Leaders Workshop that was held before ECON. God moves mightily through His people when they pray, and we desire for you, your ministry, and your church to experience God’s power!
Also coming up are two of our biggest annual conferences. First is Lead > Defend, the student apologetics conference in Little Rock on February 29. This event teaches them how to maintain a Biblical worldview in a challenging culture. A few weeks later in Russellville is Inspire Women’s Conference on March 14 with Andrea Lennon and guest speaker Lori McDaniel. Women of all ages are invited to come and see how to pursue a God-sized vision for their life.
Don’t miss these important events, and thank you for being the best folks in the world!
