If you need financial help to attend, we suggest you first approach your church or a Christian friend so that you will also have someone to provide encouragement and accountability after the conference. If there is no one you can ask, you’ll find information on the scholarships that are available on a first-come basis by clicking here. No scholarship help is available for paid critiques, Thursday Learning Labs or Early Bird Workshops, and meals. The Lord will provide a way if this is the year He wants you to come. Trust Him! 

Time Payments?

If needed, you can secure your registration with a $50 deposit and pay the balance due before or at the conference. If you need to stretch time payments out over a longer period of time, a $25 administrative fee will be added to your balance due.
