ACFW Conference - A Great Place to Be

Walk into any hotel where an ACFW Conference is being held, and you will feel the excitement in the air. And what else would you expect? Five hundred people coming together, sharing two common passions--a passion for our Lord and a passion for writing. Put it all together, and it's bound to spontaneously combust.

We see old friends and make new ones. Laughter fills the halls and lobbies. People come together to pray and encourage. The atmosphere is charged with positive electricity, and though the Enemy would love to knock out the power grid, the source is beyond his realm.

The teaching is some of the best you will find. The conference staff does an excellent job of choosing workshops that will appeal to everyone, no matter where you are in your writing career.

I think the Christ-centered focus of this conference is what makes it so special. Beginning with forty days of prayer leading up to conference, the prayer room, numerous times of worship, and the Harp and Bowl, we are continually reminded that it's not about us. It aligns our priorities and allows us to be vessels that God can use for His glory.

I've been looking forward to this year's conference since last year's ended, saving my money and counting the days. Now it's almost here. I can hardly wait.

What are you looking forward to at this year's conference? Are you prayed up? Then let's sit back and see what God's got in store.

Can you feel it? The excitement is building.
