Conference Reflections by McKrae
Hope Rising was amazing! We had approximately 150 participants overall, with a great many first timers. One couple from Moscow, who had come to previous Exodus conferences, were in attendance and were thankful that we had picked up the torch to continue the much needed network of ministries but they especially appreciated the continuation of the annual conference.
I cannot tell you how many people came up to me and gave me a heart felt thank you for all of our hard work. We’re SO thankful for all the support we received from our volunteers, like Melanee Davis, pictured in pink here who checked everyone’s badge. Our speakers and teachers, and worship leaders, testimonies, Acts of Renewal, Dennis Jernigan were ALL amazing! I was able to have many great meetings with leaders who were concerned and interested in what we were doing. Ridgecrest was, as always, amazing! I’m pictured here in my on-site office where I could be found much of the time. I did meetings, interviews with a few media outlets on the conference and the network, and dubbed the conference recordings, which can all be found online on our website for orders; 34 recordings in all!
Many of you stepped up to the plate to help with scholarships. We’re still closing out the conference with expenses and offering. Would you consider helping out? The summer is our toughest time in receiving donations and your partnership is SO important. Plan now to attend Hope Rising next year, June 4-7, 2015.
