May 1-3, 2013 + Franklin, TN
A smaller group of people present in the same room to Converse, Commune, Be. We come together to join a conversation that is already happening everywhere.
Registration will close once we have 300.
Converse + Commune + Be
Converse with one another to diffuse ideas, encourage, and connect with other like minded attendees. There will be times to hang out, and get to know others over these days. Dinners and late nights are open times for getting to know each other further.
Luminous is about Communing with our Creator. We will have holy times of inspiration, worship, silence, and connection.
There will be space to just be. Be who we are created to be. During the course of Luminous, there will be time to relax, breathe, and center yourself through worship, prayer, workshops, and discussions.
Our vision with the Luminous Project is to see a resurrection of creativity in the lives of those who attend as well as the churches and organizations we serve. The keynote sessions & workshops will provide inspiration and revelation in a creative and encouraging environment for leaders, artists, and communicators from around the globe.
Anyone from a variety of leadership, creative arts, communications, and ministries are invited to attend to be inspired and encouraged.
