Urgent Response Needed from Conference-Goers

THE GOOD NEWS: The FaithWriters conference is only two months away! (August 13 & 14)

THE BAD NEWS: Only a tiny percentage of the dozens of members who committed to come have sent in their registrations.

You may remember a few months ago, when plans were being finalized for the 3rd FaithWriters conference, we asked members to let us know if they were absolutely, positively coming to the conference. It was essential that we had confirmation that there would be enough commitment […]
