Are You Ready to Draw Near to God?

The Family Conferences are just around the corner! The 2015 Family Conference Guide is posted online, complete with a listing of speakers and programs for your family to enjoy. Speakers include Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the parents of 19 children; David and Jason Benham, twin brothers who use their entrepreneurial skills to reach others for Christ; and Dr. S. M. Davis, whose ministry helps families prevent or solve problems.

God’s love sent His Son to the cross for mankind. When we experience the love of Christ that comes from knowing God, we will passionately enter into His presence which will affect every area of our lives. May we all say with the psalmist: “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek” (Psalm 27:8). That is the goal of this year’s family conferences.

First, there will be a special track for young couples who are pursuing God’s best in their relationship, whether they are courting, engaged, or recently married. Second, pastors often carry burdens most of us do not know of, so we have arranged a special session just for them.
