What to Expect

Have you ever felt confused about your calling in life? Do you ever wonder why God has placed you where you are? God has a plan for each of us but it is sometimes difficult to remember His promise to us. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22—“Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” With a special focus on cultural identity, Design Winter Conference 2024 will explore unique ministry opportunities available to South Asian Americans and celebrate Jesus, desi-style. We want to take the time to ask the question, “What does it mean to be anointed?” Join us for four amazing days of drawing near to God’s heart through inspiring teaching, musical worship, life-changing community, and so much more.

See what it looks like! Here are highlights from a previous Design Conference:
