Here's how one participant at the conference described it. “We got into groups, gave talks and got stuck into the Bible while giving each other feedback on how to improve our handling of the word of God and preaching delivery. It was a brilliant conference, very stretching, but very beneficial....” — Phil Howe, IFES Campus Staff Worker, Belfast.
