Habakkuk 2 GPCWC 2015 Purpose statement WHA

Welcome from Marlene Bagnull, Litt.D., Director

Father met us
on the campus of Cairn University during the July 29 – August 1, 2015 Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference (GPCWC). Our faculty of 55 authors, editors, and agents provided much encouragement and practical help. As always the keynotes were outstanding.

Links to videos of several of the keynotes are below. I especially URGE you to watch Michael Gantt’s keynote, “The Cross Is the Main Thing.” It is an urgent message for the critical days ahead. 


“The sad fact for America is that
our sin has made God our enemy.
Because of the rejection of God and His Word
and because we have exchanged
the God of Life for the gods of death 
and perversion,
America is already under
the Hand of God’s judgment. 

“If there is no national confession of sin
and if we cannot find a heart of repentance,
a Holy God will complete his judgment;
either by the complete annihilation
or subjugation of what was once a great
and godly people or by rendering it
completely irrelevant on the world stage.”

that I presented September 6, 2015,
to the adult Sunday school class at my church,
Covenant Community Fellowship.
It includes Scripture and quotes from Focus on the Family
and Mike Wolff, The Reconnected Church, in Colorado.

and especially Mike’s September 3, 2015, blog,
“Sounding the Trumpet”

Father, please help us not to miss “the signs of the times.”
Help us to humble ourselves and pray
and seek Your face.
Enable us to live and to write Your answer.

The July 29 – August 1, 2015, Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference (GPCWC) again features a faculty of over 55 authors, editors, agents, and other professionals.You will again have the opportunity to choose from 16 Wednesday early bird workshops, 8 continuing sessions, plus 42 workshops or 4 hands-on clinics!  ALSO - 4 (yes, FOUR) one-on-one 15-minute appointments with the faculty of your choice for those who attend the entire conference. BONUS fifth appointment for first 75 registrants. 

But GPCWC is about so much more than numbers and opportunities to strengthen your writing and marketing skills, to get valuable feedback on your work, to pitch to editors and agents, and to form deep friendships with others who share your passion for words and for the Lord.

GPCWC is about connecting with the Lord and learning to wait on Him for the answers He will give us. If you long for your words to make a difference in the lives of your readers, if your heart's desire is to be encouraged and equipped to write about a God who is real, who is reachable, and who changes lives, you need to come to this year's GPCWC and trust Him to make it possible!

As I consider the crises facing our nation and world, I cannnot think of a more important assignment for Christian writers than to "write His answer." I'm praying you will accept His assignment and make plans now to join us at Cairn University (formerly Philadelphia Biblical University) July 29 - August 1, 2015.

"Thank you for organizing and leading such a God–glorifying,
well run, informative, challenging and inspirational writers conference at Cairn University.
Your heart for writers, your discernment of these times
as challenging and crucial for the communication of the gospel,
and the commitment you encourage in all involved will continue to lead delegates to Write His Answer.
It was a privilege to be part of it, and to contribute in some way
to the spirit of good will that was so evident in writers, faculty and leaders.
I pray that your efforts will have a lasting impact, for this day like no other is the day of salvation.
Your generosity, and earnest desire to serve the Lord simply set the tone for a rhapsodic event."

Jeff McDonald, Managing Editor, Salvation Army National Publications

"My life is STILL being touched every day by the Philly conference,
I am writing more, and with a greater sense of purpose,
yet with no concern or worries about my writing as I know God will use me
and what I write as He sees fit.  
Thank you for the opportunity you provided for so many people
to attend an amazing Christian writer's conference!!!"
