Dates are set for 2012 conference - so mark them on your calendar now and start asking off of work. July 19-21, 2012, at Campus of Cascade College in Portland, Oregon.

Gaming is where culture is being transmitted today. It is where the True Stories are being told. It is where our men and women learn about courage, sacrifice, loyalty...or not. Like any niche in our world this is an industry that needs to see genuine reflections of Christ's love, God's wisdom, and the Spirit's power to effect real soul-healing change in our lives.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Christian Game Developers Conference.
This year's conference was held at George Fox University July 7-9, 2011. Located in the Pacific Northwest just outside Portland in beautiful sunny Newberg, Oregon. Speakers included Os Hillman, Gary Barkalow, Lance Priebe, and Jeff Gerke. A live worship set was performed by Barlow Girl.
We had a great time! View photos from our 2011 conference at our Flickr site.
