Approximately 750 people have come to Fort Wayne this week for the 2013 Missionary Church National Conference. Visit Fort Wayne estimates the four-day conference will have an economic impact of nearly $700,000. The conference runs through July 18 at the Grand Wayne Center in downtown Fort Wayne. The event includes speakers, workshops and the election of the organization's president.

Organizers say the event will draw church members from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan.
