  8. What is the conference schedule?
    The conference schedule is available here.

  9. Will there be projection equipment in the break-out rooms for power point presentations?
    Most of the rooms in the Hope Center do have AV capability, but it varies. The large conference room (which will be used for breakouts) has the best (mounted projectors, audio hookups). Others have a projector but no built-in audio connections. Since they are smaller rooms, audio may be less of an issue (could be played from the speaker on your laptop). Probe Ministries also has portable projectors and portable speakers that can be put into a room or area.
