2019 National Conference
Fulfilling Our Potential for God’s Kingdom Calling
May 3 – May 5, 2019 at the HYATT REGENCY resort & spa at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ
About the Conference…
Do you know these lost truths??
There are four essential biblical truths that have, tragically, been largely overlooked in American Christianity for many decades.
Lost truth #1: ….the Kingdom of God. Surprised? When was the last time you heard a message in church that thoroughly unpacked the Kingdom of God????
Lost truth #2: ….Calling. This truth permeates the Scriptures. What does it mean? Are only Christian leaders like pastors and missionaries called? What about all the rest of us? How is work both worship and calling?
Lost truth #3: ….Discipleship. Yes, we use that term all the time. But are we really practicing it? Jesus gave us the example. Is that what we’re seeing in our church communities? Or has genuine discipleship been largely replaced by….programs?
The answers to these and other questions about discipleship will transform your life. You’ll get these answers at our 2019 National Conference!
Lost truth #4: ….Where did Jesus invest himself, most of his time, and his most intimate time? With his 12 disciples. He literally walked away from meeting needs in order to do so. Guy Rodgers gives a glimpse into this in this 8 minute podcast message. Listen here.
What does this mean for us today? Where do Christians invest most of their time and resources? What does this mean for the advancement of the Kingdom of God and the release of biblical servant-leadership? Find out at our 2019 National Conference!
There are nearly 280 references to the “kingdom of God” and the “kingdom of heaven” in the New Testament. Each of us has been uniquely created and uniquely called to co-labor with God in the Body of Christ’s mission to advance God’s kingdom. Join us as we explore how each of us can more fully discover and live out the full potential of this, the greatest calling of all.
Our 2019 National Conference will be held on May 3rd – 5th at the luxurious Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Please save the date and stay tuned for more details in the weeks ahead!
New “Share & Connect” Breakout Session at this Conference!
Last May 16th, the Arizona Chapter sponsored a “share and connect” event for Partners. Each Partner who attended had two minutes to describe what they believe God is having them do at this stage of their life, and then everyone had an opportunity to connect with each other based on shared passions and purposes.
The response and feedback was so positive that we are going to include a “Share & Connect” breakout session in this year’s National Conference.
We’ve heard from you that you want more opportunities to connect to each other with respect to your callings, passions and purposes, so we’re taking this to a new, more intentional level with this new feature at this year’s conference.
