The ISWW is a three-day event which was started in 1976, and is now in its 33rd year. The ISWW takes place every March at the Tulsa EXPO (Tulsa Fair Grounds), in Tulsa Oklahoma. Attendees come from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. The attendees are dedicated Christians, mission-minded churches, and evangelistic individuals who are looking for ideas to grow their churches and ministries and spread the good news of Jesus Christ. This is a free, indoor event and is open to the public. There will be over thirty different speakers in sessions throughout each day, with nationally known speakers presenting every evening. Attendance ranges anywhere from 8,000 - 10,000 attendees each year.

The ISWW includes over 300 Exhibitors from around the nation and world. The exhibit booth area promotes missions and equipment used for outreach including bookstores, missionaries, singing groups, universities, childrenís homes, Christian T-shirts and jewelry, educational supplies and curriculum, etc.

Over the years, the workshop has come to be thought of as a giant family reunion. We come from different places, representing congregations with different worship styles and ministry strategies. Yet for three days at the end of March, we come together as one. When itís all said and done, we go back to our home congregations with a stronger faith, a deeper commitment to the way of Christ, and a greater appreciation of what God is doing in and through his people throughout the world.

If you are serious about learning evangelism from experienced mission oriented people, this workshop is great. Whether your style is an "in your face" confrontation or simply the quiet witness of the spirit, this workshop is very very good at helping you refine and become better at what you do. (by better, I mean more effective). there is no admission fee, and I do not have any interest in the workshop except as a former participant/attendee.

As this is not sponsored by any denomination, all denominations are welcome. If you are a member of a major (or minor, for that matter) denomination, if you want to attend, and you find a church of your denomination in the area, you can likely find a free or low cost place to stay. I think there is a microtel hotel on the fairground campus and there are other options as well. If you want more information about Tulsa or accommodations, DM me.
