Closer is not just a conference, it is a catalyst weekend for people who desire the presence of God above all else, and have a heart to strengthen the local church. With practical breakouts,  empowering general sessions and intimate worship, this will be a time of revelation and pursuit.


If you are a pastor, church leader or church attender, we invite you to be a part of this culture changing, God encountering weekend!
