“SVWC is everything I love in one place, during one week…I find that the most unique part of the conference is its enormous heart. The conversations and interactions renew me spiritually and make me want to keep reaching, however impractical and distant the goal might be. SVWC is my church.”

– Firoozeh Dumas
