Unfortunately I won't be there this year (moving house, starting new job stuff). However, I would second Dave's comment that it has been a great conference the past two years. It's worth going.

By the way, the conference is aimed at youth leaders. It's particularly good if a group of leaders can come together and afterward think about what they learnt and how they might apply it to their home youth group.

I'll be there. Haven't been to one before, but looking forward to it. The line-up looks pretty good too. I think a few youth leaders from our church are going.
