In the beginning of May, Stephen and Luke went to a two-day church planting conference put on by the Association of Related Churches Ireland (ARC). It was in Newbridge near Dublin. They went over topics like church accounting, budgets, fundraising, marketing, excellence in cleanliness and work, small groups, and family ministry. Luke and Stephen came away with many ideas and also were able to network with different church planters across the island. They were thankful to Elevate Community Church (in Limerick) who gave them free tickets to go. They felt it was very valuable.
