    • Our keynote speaker is Bob Russell, retired Pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY. That small congregation of just 120 became one of the largest churches in America by 2006 when Bob retired.
    • Wednesday evening features an intentional worship session.

    Worship is again being lead by Perry Case. Perry is the worship leader from McLeansboro First GB and has a great passion for worship. Hearing the voices of all those ministers worship together is one of the highlights of the conference each year!
