Dear pastor and church leader,

Join us as we regather for a regular conference for the first time in three years. The usual aspects of our district family gathering will include Bible teaching, workshops and affinity groups, ministry stories and updates, connecting and reconnecting, good food, resourcing and networking, and more.

Sam Huggard, our keynote speaker, will address the theme Strengthened by the Grace that is in Christ Jesus During Suffering from 2 Timothy 2. Suffering—in many forms, in varying degrees, from multiple causes—has been the experience of many churches and church leaders in the last two years.  Many of us wonder if the future of the church will involve kinds and degrees of suffering that are greater than what we’re used to. This year’s conference theme will instruct, encourage, and equip us all.  Sam’s messages will explore the second chapter of Paul’s letter to Timothy: How can we be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus?

·        Remember these truths.

 ·        Avoid these errors.

 ·        Become this kind of person.

We hope to be enriched by your presence and fellowship at this year’s conference.  We look forward to seeing you there.
