What is iDEA DAY?

Idea Day is a one-day conference dedicated to facilitating conversation that will help church leaders gain practical insight and methodology that will help their ministry. The value of Idea Day is not only just in the ideas shared, but also in the environment in which they are shared. Idea Day has no hidden or personal agendas; we simply want church leaders to receive and share ideas in an open and nonjudgmental environment.
