Empowering Leadership

Donate to the ministry

October 6 & 7, 2017 at Pleasant Hill Church of the Brethren

The theme will be Created to Love based on the words of Jesus in Matthew 22:37-40.

 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: "Love your neighbor as yourself."  All the Law and the prophets hang on these two commandments.

Our moderator is John Kinsel. We look forward to what God will teach us through this theme in the months ahead. 

.4 CEUs will be granted for pre-conference sessions.
