WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING //

/ "The conference has caused me to sharpen my focus in youth ministry.  I am evaluating how I need to shift the ministry moving forward to a focus on making disciples who are mature enough to make disciples.  I've already incorporated some of the materials into my teaching.  I look forward to attending next year." /

/ "My husband (youth pastor) and I attended last year, and again this year. We've signed up for next year and are excited to come and bring others with us. … Yes, the training was invaluable and we are excited to pass it along to our youth staff (my husband plans to get certified soon), but the time spent interacting with other men and women of God was such a boost for our spirit." /

/ "So many times I have felt alone in making disciples. It seems church staff feels intimidated when the issue of making disciples the way Jesus made disciples comes up. It was refreshing to spend a couple of days together with like minded people who are passionate about obeying the Everyday Commandment. The conference has given me fresh fuel to live out the command to make disciples." /

/ "To loosely paraphrase Dann Spader during the conference & to communicate my 40 + years of 'church' experience: There are plenty of preachers & teachers around. What we are in dire need of is equippers. I agree wholeheartedly with this! Sonlife is equipping the body of Christ to BE equippers." /
