Worship Facilities Conference & Expo (WFX), presented by Worship Facilities magazine and Church Production Magazine, and produced by EH Events, will feature an expanded conference program. Now in its 4th year, WFX Houston will offer over 55 sessions, 30 of which are brand new to WFX including educational focuses on the needs of smaller churches and strategies for "going green."
Taking place November 5 7, 2008 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX, WFX will attract more than 5,000 church and industry leaders from across the country eager to gain the knowledge necessary to reach their growth goals.

This year, WFX Houston welcomes dozens of new presenters and many returning presenters who have been a part of WFX since it began in 2005, helping to set and maintain the high level of education that attendees have come to expect. "The quality of the WFX conference program keeps attendees coming back each year," says Brian Blackmore, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Church Production Magazine and Worship Facilities magazine. "The level of education provided by WFX adapts every year to the new emerging industry trends making it possible for attendees to tailor the program to meet their specific growth and ministry needs."
Within the larger conference program, WFX Houston features new educational focuses with classes specific to A/V, growth and construction needs of smaller churches and classes that highlight going green', providing attendees with ways to increase energy and cost efficiencies.

"Our new educational focuses for smaller churches and going green' will ensure that accommodation and continue to create the environment within WFX where churches of any size can realistically plan for their facility's future."
