Live Conference Questions
We want you to be comfortable, so plan accordingly. You will want to look more professional if you are doing a video presentation or have appointments with publishing experts. The conference center has excellent air conditioning and tends to be cool, so make sure you bring a sweater or jacket.
If you have registered for the pre-conference session, arrive by 9:30ish. The 3-hour sessions begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m.
If you have time constraints with flights, please fill out the form on this page or notify Bonnie by email. If you have registered for Thursday’s optional lunch, arrive before 1 p.m. The opening session will begin at 2 p.m.
When you arrive, you will receive a swag bag and a notebook containing materials from all the keynote and breakout sessions. It will have space for taking notes. It will also have a printout of your selection for each session, just in case you forget to bring it.
You will want to bring your Bible, laptop, iPad, or tablet. The Prince Center does not have a business center, but they will make copies if needed for a small fee.
We have a very generous cancellation policy. If you cannot come this year, you can transfer your registration to next year without penalty or problem if there is a price increase or change.
If you would rather just cancel, all your money is returned, except for a $100 pre-registration fee. But that money is not lost to you. If you find you can attend another year, that money is applied to your registration at that time.
Or, you can donate your registration fee to our scholarship fund and bless a person who would not be able to attend without help.
Yes. The entire conference center has Wi-Fi.
No. The track you select (speaking or writing) determines your small group time. A great deal of preparation goes into the small group experience.
- Those in the Speaking Track will have the opportunity to speak twice in front of a small group of their peers and will be critiqued by a trained leader.
- Those in the Writing Track will have a 1st Page Peer Critiquing session, a Q & A with publishing experts, and appointments with publishing experts.
Feel free to choose from either track. We want this experience to be as valuable as possible for each person attending. Choose the breakout sessions that will most significantly impact your personal ministry.
If you are a first-time attendee to the Speaking Track, we do have a list of recommendations that will give you the tools needed to be prepared to speak with confidence in almost any situation. That list can be found on the breakout sessions page.
Yes. We want this experience to be the most beneficial to you. If you have a change of heart about what session you would like to take, it’s not a problem for you to switch.
- Each conferee will receive at least four appointments with publishers, editors, publishing experts, social media experts, author or speaking mentors, and more.
- Christina Custodio will have 15-minute headshot appointments available for $50. If you didn’t register for this at the time of registration, fill out the form on this page or email Bonnie to get a timeslot.
Very possibly. We work hard to schedule appointments during break times, but there is not enough time for all of them.
Appointments will be scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning. If you have an appointment scheduled during one of the breakout sessions, please sit near the door so it’s not obvious when you slip out.
Feel free to return when you’re finished. Also, we will have videos of each session that you can purchase after the conference.

We have selected food that you will love, and if you have any food allergies, they make accommodations if you let us know ahead of time.
