Conference environments that bring encouragement instead of discouragement, and clarity instead of confusion

Our one-day conferences around the country have one primary goal: to make sure small and midsize church leaders leave better than they came with more knowledge and wisdom to continue their good work.

We’ve all been to conferences that have been dazzling and inspiring. And we’ve all walked away from these conferences believing that we could never implement what we just experienced.

It’s common to experience feelings of discouragement after leaving a great conference as you face the reality of your situation back home. At 95Network we’ve created conference environments that bring encouragement instead of discouragement, and clarity instead of confusion.

Our one-day conferences start with 40-minutes of applicable teaching followed by discussion and personal application. Topics are researched and designed to support small and midsize church leaders with their efforts of becoming effective equippers.

Our goal is to make sure you leave better than you came with more knowledge and wisdom to continue your good work.
