The conference continues as we partner with the local church, allowing more people to experience the heart of Awake and Alive and allowing conference attendees to attend worship they may enjoy or be most familiar with.  Conference breakout session speakers will present Bible study at four different local congregations with different worship opportunities from Traditional to Blended to Contemporary.  Church locations and topics to be announced at a later date.
