HACWN Conference

HACWN 2017 Conference

October 19-21, 2017

What’s in Your Hand?

“The the Lord said to him, ‘What is that in your hand?'” 

Exodus 4:2 

That’s the question God asked Moses, and He still asks us today—what’s in your hands that YOU can use to minister and proclaim God’s word?

So this year at HACWN, we’re asking, “What’s in Your Hands?” How can you use the tools God has put in your hands (and your brain and your life) for His glory? How is He calling you to use the skills, dreams, and abilities He’s given you?

That’s the purpose of the HACWN conference. To explore the dreams, build the skills, and get our materials out where people can use them, be blessed by them, experience their own transformed lives.

No matter what your writing genres, at the HACWN conference, you’ll find workshops and networking to help you.

What’s in your hands? And how can you develop your abilities?
