Men's perspective

"I have attended multiple Idea Days because I enjoy the spirit of the group. Every time I have been to an Idea Day, I have come away with a few key insights to take back to our church. I am not a senior pastor, but it has helped my youth ministry and our church." 

-Aaron Burden,  Michigan

"I came away from Idea Day with so much more in that one day than most conferences I've attended in a week. I appreciate the forward thinking and ideas."

-Travis Lane, Florida

women's perspective

"For me, Idea Day is about connecting with other women in my life stage; ones who are juggling being a wife, a mom, and ministry leader. The ideas are amazing too. I run a Christian daycare, so learning how to change the culture in my business or learning how to hire and love my employees is just a few small things I love about Idea Day. I return to Idea day on an annual basis because it is refreshing, enlightening, and just plain fun!”           

-Julie Burchell, California

"I love seeing friends who serve in ministry at other church and being encouraged and challenged to take my ministry to the next level." 

-Kelly Murray, Nevada
