The annual EPA Christian media convention is your chance to step away from daily activities to engage and interact with the EPA community. Join together to explore new ideas and learn from one another through powerful seminars, workshops, discussions and presentations.
Join us for EPA 2019, April 7-9, in Oklahoma City
The annual EPA convention is a source of new ideas and creative innovations. It provides an intense time of professional learning, networking and inspiration.
From writers to designers, editors to publishers and seasoned veterans to emerging talents, the EPA convention provides an opportunity to grow and become something greater. This is not just an association, but rather a unique and tightly woven community focused on professionalism, respect and commitment to God. EPA members do not just meet with Christian periodical publishing leaders — they become them.
Convention forums bring diverse voices to critical current topics. Leading ministry and industry experts dialogue on viewpoints, trends, and the appropriate response of Christian media to these issues.
Past programs have addressed:
• Racial reconciliation
• Civil discourse
• Sexual harassment/abuse
• World evangelization
Some conventions offer pre- or post-conference extended seminars on such concentrations as writing, editing, or photography. These seven-hour interactive sessions, led by industry leaders, delve deeply into advanced techniques designed to sharpen the skills of practitioners at any level.
At the heart of EPA conventions are the thirty breakout sessions featuring ministry and industry leaders, individuals who have risen to the top of their professions and are widely respected for their skills and knowledge. A stellar lineup of speakers has been assembled to present a wide variety of workshops on writing, editing, design, photography, technology, social media, management, marketing, and current issues.
Convention attendees will have five options from which to choose during each of six breakout periods. Here you will learn current trends, fresh concepts, and innovative ideas. This is where you will be challenged, trained, and equipped to take your skills to a higher level.
