This conference began as a way to facilitate fellowship between regional sister churches to keep spiritual momentum between summer and winter conferences. We organize bringing and cooking our own food between the churches (with help from everyone for meal prep, serving, and cleanup). The pastors teach the main sessions and encourage upcoming leaders or other church members to teach breakout sessions. Fellowship occurs throughout, but especially during meal times, after the main sessions on Friday and Saturday nights, and Saturday afternoon with board games, sports, jam sessions, spiritual conversations, additional breakout sessions, and even sometimes scavenger hunts or large group games.
