What makes a D-Now weekend special is having someone come and speak into the lives of your students. There is something unique and different when a speaker communicates truth passionately. Dr. Dave Park, Mark Keyes, and Dave Johnston have been sharing this message all over the world and they know how to teach and communicate identity and freedom to this generation.
