Meals Option: We will be offering a special meal option plan in the Shenandoah Gym again this year. These meals will be catered by Randy Scaggs, owner of Plantation on Sunnybrook restaurant in Roanoke. If you purchase this option, you won't have to drive off campus to eat and you will have the added benefit of fellowship with fellow Advance attendees. Thursday Dinner, Friday Lunch and Friday Dinner will be offered for a cost of $35 total for all three meals. **Due to seating limitations, this option will only be available to the first 450 people who elect to purchase this option, so purchase your meal option early.** Late-comers, and those who elect, can take their meals at any of the many area restaurants. In order to offer this option in the most cost efficient way, it is an all or nothing package. Refunds cannot be given for any unused meals.

MPA 2016 Testimonies
- This MPA has been so sweet that if you have the next one in a barn in the middle of a muddy field, God willing, I'll be there.
- These Advances are life changing!

- The prayer Advance has been a huge impact in my life.
- Food was great! preaching was great! Worship was great!
- Accommodations first class!
- First time attending. Loved the conference, the singing, the speakers...
- The men's, women's, as well as couples prayer Advances have been an absolute blessing to my wife and I.
- This was my first year and I thought that the accommodations were very nice. This whole conference has been an extreme blessing to me.

- The men's prayer advance has been a tremendous blessing to me personally. This was my third consecutive advance.
- Amazing, powerful, moving, saving, thoughtful. Big thank you!
- This Advance was one that I was a bit apprehensive about and thought that I might not attend, because of the new location and issues that it presented in my mind. However, I was pleasantly proven wrong on some of those issues and the messages were apparently all tailored to hit me square in the heart, so I am very glad that I came.
- This prayer advance is one of the best things you can come to. It is helped me so much.
