b'AN INVITATION WITH MOTIVATION Dear Members and Friends, Year after year, attendees, exhibitors, and even hotel staff agree that Citygate Networks Annual Conference and Exposition is one of the most creative, wellexecuted, ministryfocused training events out there. If youve been to one, youll likely concur. And if you havent, come see what all the buzz is about. \x02Last year in Baltimore, 97 percent of theJohn Ashmenattendees said they got their moneys worth.In 2022, in addition to another terrific program, well be in one of our favorite cities, San Antonio. Our highrise hotel is right on the worldfamous River Walk and its a threeminute strolland less if you know the short cutto the Alamo, the most revered historical site in Texas.The amazing River Walk incorporates winding pathways and bridges flanking the San Antonio River. Robert Hugman came up with the awardwinning landscape design to rechannel potential floodwaters and keep residents safe. There are 21 bridges along the route that utilize various architectural styles, but all serve one critical purpose: to unite the two sides of the river.This architectural wonder serves as the inspiration for our conference theme. The troubled waters of fear, confusion, and dissension too often separate Christ followers who should be in fellowship; and they separate groups that should be working together to make a difference in society. But in Christ, we can bridge our differences. The Apostle Paul calls church leaders to do exactly this in 1 Corinthians 1:10. Come rediscover what unites us and learn how to build better bridges toward an exciting future. Ill look forward to seeing you in June, deep in the heart of Texas!
