“Investing in leaders is what drives us to develop the most practical, inspiring and equipping conference we can—year after year,” said Lancaster Baptist Church Senior Pastor Dr. Paul Chappell. “With more than 5,000 attendees from all 50 states, a focus on soul-winning and discipleship is a priority. Our prayerfully considered sessions, which are grounded in the most timely, cultural concerns of leaders, help these leaders fulfill the Great Commission—the greatest calling of their lives.”

Biblical preaching and teaching from the keynote speakers will edify and encourage attendees to make a difference with the Gospel of Christ.
