2016 marks the 11th year of FIDC – a conference that seeks to educate, inspire and equip students across the country to pursue Christ-centered development. We hope to awake agape - sacrificial love - in the everyday, whether that be through listening to inspiring speakers from around the world, networking with Christian development organizations, or engaging in action-planning sessions and workshops.
