ACCELERATE | With Mark Sayers

Some great comments from the day:
"Well done, meaningful, good notice ahead of time so I could get and read his book. Thank you!"
"Overall, it was a good event. Loved connecting with pastors that I would not normally get to see."
"I would love to have Mark Sayers come back again. Thanks for opening this beyond Four Square only. I hope move of our pastors from similar denominations will come in the future. I would like to have access to the recorded content for other leaders if possible. Thanks for all your good work to make this day happen."
