It's less than two weeks
2012! A year's worth of prayer, planning, and preparation will
come together with a full house of the most amazing people in
ministry...and look out! Who knows what God wants to do!
And really...that's the most important thing, isn't it? What
does God want to do? How will God show up in amazing ways to

Here's what I know: We can't program a move of God. Yes, we can

all we do as we make him the center of our conference, our lives,
and our ministries.
I'm thinking of the verse in Psalms that says unless the Lord
builds the house they labor in vain who build it.
God, please don't let our labor be in vain!
