Enrich Conference

For Bible Study Writers, Speakers, & Teachers

Dates: September 19-21, 2024
Location: Gainesville, Georgia

An Invitation

Would you like to “get together” with other Bible study writers, speakers, and teachers and talk about the craft and ministry of writing and all that goes with it? Come to the Enrich Conference 2024!

Information

This free conference will be held at a hotel about an hour north of Atlanta, and Katy Kauffman and Beebe Kauffman will be teaching the classes and emceeing the discussions and feedback. This will be our seventh year to host the Enrich Conference.

Katy Kauffman has been a faculty member at several writers’ conferences, including the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. The Kauffmans, who are the founders of Lighthouse Bible Studies, LLC, have published the online magazine, Refresh Bible Study Magazine, for over eight years. Lighthouse Bible Studies also publishes compilations, some of which have been Selah Award finalists at the Blue Ridge conference.

Schedule

Our schedule is from Thursday afternoon to Saturday evening. On Thursday, we will have a welcome time at 1 pm ET, and the first class will start at 2 pm. We will end on Saturday at 8:30 pm. 

This year we will only have an in-person conference. There will not be a Zoom for this one, and it won’t be recorded. We believe the in-person conference will be fun, inspiring, and practical. We will focus not only on the conference topics, but also on giving opportunities to build relationships with the other attendees.

If you are interested in attending some classes on Zoom, we are offering classes on Canva once a month, starting on April 20. Please email us at lighthousebiblestudies@hotmail.com for more details.
