Northwoods Conference Center
Family Conferences are weeklong, life-changing family events. Rich fellowship, inspiring messages, and hands-on workshops make Family Conference something to look forward to by anyone who has experienced one. Whether making new friendships with other families or rekindling relationships from previous years, the conference is an annual highlight for many.
The conferences are structured to foster spiritual growth as young and old alike are challenged to honor God’s Word in every area of their lives.
This year’s conference theme is taken from I John 4:10, which says, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” Experiencing Christ’s love personally and becoming a channel of that love to others is the fulfillment of the Law and the prophets.
The Northwoods Conference Center, owned and operated by IBLP, offers 63 hotel-style rooms, 10 suites, and 6 apartments on a first-come first served basis. Each suite includes a living area and kitchenette. The apartments consist of two bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen, and living area. All rooms are furnished at the beginning of the week with linens and towels. To find out more information please see the details below. On site lodging is currently full with a waiting list. Please call the Northwoods Conference Center at 906-358-4500 to get on a waiting list in case plans of families change and we can accommodate more on site guests.
