These high-level, in-depth courses cover topics such as staffing, legal, resource development, marketing, technology, communications, finance and other important topics.

The Exhibit Hall gives leaders the chance to connect with ministry partners who specialize in marketing, technology, finance, fundraising, land other critical elements of running a ministry.
