2016 AFHE Convention Speakers
and Workshop Information
We have a great line-up of speakers with workshops covering a wide variety of topics. We have invited speakers who have a message of hope and encouragement with plenty of practical ideas and insight to help you as you nurture, develop, teach, disciple, and unfold the gifts in your child. We pray that you come away refreshed, re-energized, strengthened, inspired, and full of fresh ideas for the year ahead.
WORKSHOP SCHEDULE & DESCRIPTIONS
We encourage you to review the schedule ahead of time to get an idea of what's being offered and to help plan which sessions you'd like to attend. The following are general session workshops taught by our featured speakers. You'll find their bios and photos father down this page. Workshop descriptions are listed in the order in which they will take place Friday and Saturday.
Join us for worship in the ballroom at 8:45 AM Friday and Saturday before the keynote sessions begin.
We are pleased to offer the opportunity for registered exhibitors to present exhibitor workshops during the convention weekend. Exhibitor workshops can be product demonstrations, introduction to services, or general interest sessions that may be of interest to your family. We encourage you to attend exhibitor workshops in addition to the general session workshops hosted by AFHE.
Exhibitor workshops take place in 4 curtained areas in the exhibit hall. They run for 45 minutes and start at the top of each hour between 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM. This is different than the general session workshop schedule for featured speakers outlined above. NOTE: We have increased the size of the curtained areas this year and we've added microphones, screens, and projectors for an even better exhibitor workshop experience.
