Each fall, over 150 staff members of faith-based volunteer programs, campus ministers, and other partners gather for our National Conference. Hosted in a different location each year, the National Conference is an opportunity for those involved in faith-based service to come together to learn new skills, share their experience and expertise, and network with their colleagues.
Each year we feature a series of keynote speakers and offer participants the opportunity to attend valuable workshops on all aspects of program management and operation.
