Every year during summer, we, as a church, draw together to spend time together in prayer, worship, teaching, and fellowship. This year our conference will be held in the ancient biblical city of Bethlehem. On average we bring around 120 people together and we arrange accommodation in a hotel that is suitable for families and that is conducive to spending time in God’s presence.
The theme of our conference this year is from Psalm 51:12 which reads “Restore unto Me the Joy of Thy Salvation.” The conference will be dedicated to building up the families that we’ve invited along, both believers and non-believers, for impacting teaching, counseling, intercession, fellowship, and winning the lost and sharing the truth about the plan of God for his nation.
During some of the daily breaks between teachings and seminars, we take the families and their children to visit some of the local Biblical sites in and around Israel, and we teach them what Jesus did at these places and about other significant events that happened there. The people always find these outings very exciting, and we found that it’s a great way to visually present the Bible to them, and to embed the Word of God in their hearts.
We ask all participants of the conference to be committed to their attendance, as we subsidize them for 50% of the costs of the conference, on the condition that they attend all meetings and actively participate. Those who do not wish to be full participants can of course still come, but we ask them to cover the full fee by themselves.
During the teaching aspects of each session, we will break into groups to discuss and pray over the subject and content of the teaching they just heard. It’s important for the attendees to hear each other’s thoughts and to encourage one another in their walk with Christ.
Those in attendance are always very keen on asking questions during teachings and so we open up the floor for questions. Afterward, they are also allowed to meet with me if they have any additional questions, and I’m always very glad to set time aside for that. This conference serves an important function in revealing the truth of Jesus Christ, winning the lost, and facilitating quality time spent together in the presence of the Holy Spirit.
We want people to be touched by God during the meetings, teachings, and counseling sessions, and we desire to see new families coming to salvation in Christ. Every year we see miracles and people’s hearts being changed. We ask that you would stand with us in prayer and faith for this very strategic conference and that God will do a new work among us and anoint us for the calling He has placed upon our lives.
Our conference will be held 16-18 September and we will be staying at the hotel for two nights. We already have a list of nearly 100 people who desire to attend, including non-believers. The subsidized price per person comes to 600 shekels ($176) which includes accommodation, transportation, Biblical site visits, meals, and conference registration.
If you, your home group, or church feel led to stand with us in building up families in Christ in Israel and seeing the lost saved, then I would like to invite you to sow into this conference by sponsoring one or more persons for $176 each.
Thank you and God bless you!
