"I have had the opportunity and privilege over the years to attend many different types of conferences, seminars and concerts. Refuel is certainly one of the best events that I have ever attended."
"I LOVED the fact that I was able to bring my worship team and see them thoroughly  enjoy the entire experience. It is a great time for worship teams to grow with each other..."
"The whole day was full of practical knowledge, yet was so Spirit-driven - it’s rather unexplainable and wonderful. It changed the way I led worship the very next day!"
"I had never heard of Refuel. A colleague from another church had extra tickets and invited me. It was a balm to my weary soul. I’m bringing my entire team next year."
"My team left very encouraged and excited for Sunday morning!"
"The music worship times were dynamic and filled the auditorium with the Holy Spirit. The speakers were awesome and the breakout sessions were great!"
