What students are saying:
I really enjoyed my two weeks at NICFA and I am looking forward to next year. I have already found myself implementing some of the ideas discovered during my time there. Pretty cool, huh?
must say that I am beginning my 15th year in ministry and have done my
share of continuing ed events. The NICFA seminar was the single best one
I've ever attended!! It was incredibly practical and helpful in so many ways! I can't wait until next year!!

can I make my job easier and more productive? Twitter, Facebook, the
Internet, how can these tools be used in my church's ministry? How can
my church be a better organization? Where can I build networking
relationships with other professionals?
