Hearts were stirred and spirits were lightened on Friday morning as conference attendees departed North East, Maryland, for their respective places of residence and ministry. “I was really blessed by the conference setting,” said Will Hatfield of Ames, Iowa. “This was a great time of fellowship with people, and just a great chance to gather together and hear some wonderful preaching.”

Although each of the conference messages addressed a different topic, when considered as a whole they communicate a simple yet profound point: God’s servants should strive for excellence and intentionality in all that they do and should endeavor always to implement “best church practices.” A commitment to the headship of Christ and the authority of Scripture demands nothing less.

Next year’s conference will be held from June 26 to 29 in Fishers, Indiana. The conference theme, #LoveThatChurch, will be expressed via a series of expository messages from the book of Ephesians. We hope to see you there!
