FreshWind Themes & Talk Titles

INTRODUCTION
People often ask what it is that FreshWind does.  I answer: we teach, model, and impart responsiveness to the Holy Spirit for life and ministry.  "About what?" may be the reply.  So here is a listing of the conference themes and individual talks we've given over the past few years.  If someone you know is considering inviting us, this would be good imput for them.

Note: ALL CAPS are conference or theme titles; words not in caps are titles of individual talks. Many talks can be rearranged to fit other themes.
