    I am eager to get started on my ministry. I plan to do a testimony format of my life as a Jehovahs Witness and becoming a Christian. I don’t have a fear of public speaking. However, I am not a writer and don’t know where to start and end with my story. Can you tell me if you will be having any other conferences or classes before July 2019?

      Amber, we only do the big Speak Up Conference once a year, and our next one will be July 11-13, 2019. I hope you can join us at that time. I will add you to our email list (if you are not already on it) and you will receive a notification when registration opens.
