Welcome to your Future with Hope!

For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 NRSVCE)

What last year's attendees said:

"From the first welcoming hello from the organizers, I knew I was in the right place. Humor, humility, and heart abounded from start to finish."


"I loved every second of it and hope it will be an annual event. It was so awesome that I'd love for it to be another day."


"It all worked. Thank you for hosting such a blessed event. I'm still smiling and am truly excited to see what God has planned for me."
