Events: Shepherding Conference 2014


 
Calendar-Blue

One of the greatest needs in the assemblies today is for gifted shepherds (pastors – Ephesians 4:11) to do the hard work of an elder (1 Timothy 3:1, 5:17). So many today desire a “position,” however very few are actively doing the work.

The Shepherding Conference will be held, Lord willing, September 18-20 to encourage and equip brethren to do the work of a shepherd. In past years the conference has been well attended by concerned brethren and very well received.

Teachers: Brian Gunning (ON), Bruce Hulshizer (PA), Keith Keyser (PA), Joe Reese (ON)
When: September 18-20, 2014
Where: Greenwood Hills Bible Conference & Camp, 7062 Lincoln Way East, Fayetteville, PA 17222
Who: Men of all ages
Details: Here

Jottings – God Does Not Despise Our Personalities

 

Jottings Pencil Red

God does not despise our personalities… the problem is that sin twists our personalities. God has a plan for your life and your personality was custom designed by God to fit His will. Do not let sin hijack the personality God gave you.

Events: Labor Day Weekend Conference

Greenwood Hills Camp Conference Center InnGreenwood Hills’ Labor Day Conference is my favorite conference of the year.

The conference is held annually over the Labor Day Weekend on the picturesque grounds of the Greenwood Hills Camp & Conference Center located in Fayetteville, PA. The conference is always well attended, and is often a sell out. So, if you are interested in attending be sure to register as early as possible.

This year the conference begins Friday night August 31 and concludes with lunch the following Monday; brother Mike Attwood is the scheduled speaker. More information is available on the Greenwood Hills website here.

See you there!
