It was very organized and the topics and entertainment was simply magnificent. I plan to bring a group of young people with me next year. I think that this event offers so education and inspiration for youth, especially in the current time in which we live. Thank you for your effort in reaching out to young people. Your hard work and dedication is paying off in a huge way, and God is and will continue to bless this effort because one can see how it is growing from year to year." -Adult

 “This is an awesome conference. Well put together. Much needed topics. Very informative. Real time present issues. My group was able to purchase books that we read together several times a year. This conference helps our Youth Department staff with topics that we can use to talk not only to our children but our parents. We look forward to the conference every year. This conference goes into our yearly budget. Not only do I look forward to bringing our girls but they look forward to coming every year.” -
