Creating an experience for churches to learn and inspire each other is the essence of what the REACH Conference is about.

The 3rd annual REACH Conference returns to Raleigh with its powerful 1.5-day conference. The conference is held in a church setting and features national and regional experts delivering education and training in the areas that are critical to a church’s ability to grow and have greater impact on community.

The REACH conference is a part of the WFX Network which includes the brands WFX Conference and Expo, Worship Facilities Magazine, and Worship Tech Director. “Churches are striving to make their buildings, technology and worship have greater impact and they are searching for ideas and the skills to advance their vision, says Jim Wagner, managing director of the WFX Network. 

“The REACH conference was created to facilitate churches learning from and with other churches.  This comes from our years of experience in teaching churches - wonderful things happen when churches learn together.  They experience being part of the greater church community and realize that they are not alone in striving to solve similar challenges. This is the story of the REACH conference – churches learning with and from each other.”

The 2017 REACH Conference returns to Crossroads Fellowship Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. The conference, which is scheduled for May 15-16 features four educational tracks with over 50 conference sessions on buildings, tech arts, communication and worship. Attendees will leave with practical, ready-to-implement ideas and solutions for their church.

New in 2017, The WFX Network announced a partnership with Integrity Music through its WeAreWorship.com platform to produce worship team training at the REACH Conference. WeAreWorship.com is presenting the Worship Arts track at REACH and features training from renowned worship leaders, songwriters, musicians and artists who have a heart for the local church. Worship will feature Travis Ryan, The Worship Society and Covenant Worship.

“Connecting a global worshipping community has been the essential focus for the WeAreWorship.com brand since its inception.  We admire and support the purpose of WeAreWorship.com and the impact it’s having on worship leaders in the church.  Our partnership is an exciting opportunity for both organizations. Each is completely complimentary and supportive of the other’s mission, purpose and goals as we all strive together to serve the church in its mission of reaching current and future generations. ” says Jim Wagner.

In addition to the educational program, churches can meet face-to-face with leading product and service providers who really know the needs of churches.  More information about sponsored companies can be found at http://wfxreach.com/raleigh/sponsor-showcase/

Networking will also play a big role in the REACH Conference—in fact it’s a central tenet of the WFX Network’s vision for the events. “We want attendees to get to know one another and realize that whatever struggles or questions they have in their particular church or ministry function, they’re not alone,” says Wagner. “Our hope is that attendees leave energized, and with new connections.”

The REACH Conference extends group discounts, student discounts and scholarships to small churches to ensure that this experience is accessible.  Early bird pricing is available until February 28th and information on registration and pricing, can be found at http://wfxreach.com/raleigh/registration/
