- WORKSHOP ROW. We are no longer using the huge Expo (QuikTrip) building. We have created Workshop Row due to newly constructed facilities. Central Park was still wet behind the ears when you were here last year. Between Central Park and the Pavilion is the newly constructed Exchange Center. Three classes will be in the ExCtr as well as all of the booths, KidZone, and evening Bible Hour. CntrlPk will have three classes as well as the Pavilion's usual one.
- THE BUDGET WILL CLEAR $150,000. We will not take up a collection all three nights. On Friday night we will raise in the neighborhood of $50,000 in 15 minutes. The workshop is a gigantic undertaking of many facets. The cost is enormous. We have fought off for years the idea of a charge per person. We continue to make this workshop available to every person for free, trusting the composite of those gathered to help us as they so wish from the heart.
- PARKPLACE. There will be plenty of newly created parking spaces. No more orange barrels and blocked off entrances. Parking places will be level, smooth, close by, and ample.
- NEW EVENING KEYNOTERS. Loyd Harris of Little Rock is an outreach guru. This man is a strong voice to thousands every week. Joe Almanza of Abilene (did a keynote years ago, but to many he will be new) was converted while in prison. His family owned Texas via the Mexican mafia and has lived much of his Christian life in danger from hit men. Steve Jackson of Atlanta was once Muslim. He is a happy, friendly man who loves to tell people what God has done for him and will do for us.
