About

 Spark Christian Podcast Conference  

http://SparkChristianPodcastConference.com

Christianity is one of the most popular and fastest growing podcast categories and happens to be the least represented at main stream conferences. We want that to change. In February 2020, Christian podcasters and influencers will gather to collaborate in Houston, Texas for the first ever Spark Christian Podcast Conference and two day networking event.

Spark Christian Podcast Conference desires to educate and empower Christians to spread their message of hope through podcasting. Sparking conversations for the kingdom!

We are hosting the inaugural Spark Christian Podcast Conference in Houston on February 21-22, 2019.

What can you expect?

You can expect to be motivated, inspired, and equipped to start, launch, market, and grow a podcast.

Conference attendees will learn to create, launch and market the podcast show of their dreams. Podcasters with existing shows will gain expert insider tips to take their show to the next level. 

SPARK attendees will feel more confident about hosting their podcasts, have practical tools to save time and money, learn to create great content, understand their analytics, streamline the interview/guest process, and gain more listeners.

Sessions will cover a wide range of topics from podcasting 101 to advanced podcasting techniques, including the importance of branding, marketing, and production. You will discover creative ways to monetize your show, and learn how to get more listeners.

We've secured some of the best Christian podcasters in the industry to host sessions and provide personal coaching. We will talk equipment, editing, and the essentials to help you stand out from the competition.

Network and connect with Christian podcasters. Meet well-known podcasters and get your podcast questions answered.

If you are a podcast listener or podcast enthusiast like many of us, we NEED YOUR HELP!

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk and challenges for this event include getting the project funding off the ground. In order to provide the best possible conference experience and cover the cost of the event. I have assembled an incredible team to help execute conference plans once funding is secure.
