Today we are thrilled to start talking about The Influence Conference 2013! This year, The Influence Conference will be held September 26-28 at the beautiful Westin Indianapolis Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. Tickets will officially go on sale April 1, 2013 and we just can’t wait! But we don’t want to wait until then to connect with you! You can connect with the Influence Network on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

We are so excited for this year’s conference and have already been praying for all our attendees  If you’ve ever wondered how or why the Lord was going to use you in your home, work, community, or online – The Influence Conference is a fantastic place to connect and learn. We believe that God has given you influence right where you are, for one purpose: to make much of Him. At The Influence Conference we’re going to dig into the common thread of all of us – the Good News. We plan on doing a little teaching, talking, sharing, and celebrating concerning the ways He might want to use you on the individual platforms He’s given.

If you’re a blogger or social media pro who wants to grow in her ability to leverage the internet to make much of Jesus–and help support your family’s ability to act and minister – Influence will be that conference. If you’re a gal who cares little about the internet, we believe Influence is for you too and you’ll be blessed beyond measure by coming. If you’ve always wanted a community of women, but never felt you fit in at Christian conferences before, come knowing you’ll be embraced and all your charm and quirk will be loved! If you’re looking for a weekend to experience community among like-minded women, if you’re looking for a fun and engaging weekend, if you want to meet some of the amazing women online who you talk to or read about or think you could learn from, The Influence Conference is the place.

We have some incredible speakers lined up! They are wise and precious and cannot wait to dig into a variety of topics in life and strategy– we’re going to talk about it all. We have two tracks that we hope will bless your socks off: Life and strategy. LIFE: Each of our lives are uniquely shaped by God Himself. By telling our stories of grace, forgiveness, trials, loss, and triumph- we are telling of the Good News. Each speaker has a story to tell, full to the brim with the Goodness of God. STRATEGY: If you are wanting to take your storytelling to a new place this track will help. Your influence in social media can bless you and your ministries relationally and even financially. These sessions will give you practical tips to leverage your business or blog for God’s glory and your good.

We want to make it clear that the Influence Conference,  and the Influence Network as a whole, is just as much yours as it is ours. We want you to listen to the Holy Spirit and ask, “Do I really believe I have been given influence to make much of Jesus? Do I see the influence I’ve been given here, today – right where I am? If I do believe that, then how am I responding? Am I being convicted and humbled and given hope by the Good News?” That’s why we’re having this conference. So that we can ask and answer those questions together.  And we can start right now on the network & keep going right till September.

We’d love for YOU to join us.
