Spring Conference May 4-6, 2016
Cedar Springs Christian Retreat Center, Sumas, WA
Theme: Living and Serving Apocalyptically
In the first three chapters of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the risen and living Lord of the universe breaks through from hiddenness (that is what the word apocalypse means), and speaks to seven congregations on the land mass we now call Turkey. In each of His messages, He tells us Who He is, what He knows about us, what He is calling us to do, and what He promises those who obey Him. At this conference, we will give careful attention to what He said then so that we might hear what He is saying now. Hopefully by the end of the time together, each of us will be able to discern what Jesus is saying to the church in our time, and in particular, to the contexts in which He calls us to serve.
